It's More Than Poverty: Study Finds Employment Precarity Increasing in Greater Toronto

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Precarious employment is increasing in the Hamilton and Greater Toronto Area and its harmful effects on individuals, families, and community life are documented in a recently released research report. Today on the program, we’re talking labour economist Wayne Lewchuk and lead author of a research study that explored poverty, employment precarity, and household wellbeing in southern Ontario. The report seeks to broaden the public discussion around poverty, and implicate deteriorating work conditions as a major aspect of poverty and social wellbeing.
