Throughout the pandemic, workers on the frontlines kept society fed, cared for, clean, and connected while earning low wages in dangerous work without paid sick days or health benefits – often without even the full protection of the Employment Standards Act (ESA). This new report from the Workers’ Action Centre draws directly from the leadership and experience of workers on the frontlines in low-wage and precarious jobs who are calling for:
- $20 minimum wage
- 10 permanent, employer-paid sick days
- Equal pay for equal work
- End misclassification and exemptions
- Just cause protection
- Decent work for all!

With the provincial election officially underway, it is an important time to put the issues that matter to workers in our communities on the agenda.
