"Working on the Edge"

This is the title of a webinar by ‘Deena Ladd, coordinator of the Workers’ Action Centre [in Toronto], in which she discusses employment standards in part-time, contract, and other precarious work. She also presents ideas from a 2007 report titled “Working on the Edge,” highlighted in the Maytree Foundation’s Policy in Focus newsletter.’

You can hear Ms Ladd and watch her PowerPoint slides as if you were in a conference room with her. In addition you can read comments and questions from the individuals who were attending this webinar when it was recorded. (Darn nice software.)

My thanks are due to Shane Bennett of Toronto (@shanebe) for mentioning this on Twitter.
