Ontarians call in to talk about decent work and the labour law review
On July 2, Deena Ladd from the Workers’ Action Centre was on CBC radio’s Ontario Today phone-in show to talk about decent work and how the government’s labour law review could help us get there. Workers and concerned individuals from across Ontario phoned in to share their stories of bad jobs, and talk about what they think needs to change. The discussion really showed that people across Ontario are concerned about the state of jobs in this province, and that we need $15 and Fairness. If you missed it live, you can listen to the discussion here, What’s wrong with Ontario’s employment standards legislation.
Didn’t get a chance to call in? Let the government know what you think about jobs in Ontario and how the laws need to change. Email Minister of Labour Kevin Flynn, or tweet him @OntMinLabour @MPPKevinFlynn. Tell him it’s #time4decentwork and #15andfairness in Ontario, and ask your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbours to do the same.
March for Jobs, Justice, & the Climate
On July 5, the Fight for $15 & Fairness joined the March for Jobs, Justice, & the Climate.
We were joined by thousands of other labour, community, indigenous, and environmental activists as we took to the streets of Toronto to demand that a clean-energy future be built on justice and good jobs.
We demonstrated solidarity by coming together to stand up for an important cause that impacts us all #jobsjusticeclimate
