On the heels of World Decent Work Day, BC Employment Standards Coalition Co-Chair will be sitting down with host Rick Cluff of CBC Radio’s the Early Edition. Tune in at about 7:40am on Tuesday, October 11th – they’ll be discussing the upcoming series of Workers’ Forums taking place throughout six areas of Metro Vancouver between October 11th-20th. We’re hoping to hear stories from as many workers as possible in ‘bad jobs,’ with the goal of informing employment standards in BC that promote safe, fair and dignified working conditions.

They underscore the opportunity for immediate reform in three areas: minimum wages, child protections, and migrant worker rights and protections.
