The Institute of Political Economy is organizing a Spring Seminar Series to highlight some key issues being discussed in our Work and Labour program.

Seminar 1: Gig Economy (May 11, 2022)
Seminar 2: Waitressing  May 24, 2022

Our first seminar will look at the Gig Economy. This seminar took place on May 11, 2022 via zoom.

Panellists will review and evaluate the ongoing organizing efforts in Ontario to gain employment rights, how the Ford government is threatening those rights and what we can do to support the Gig Workers Bill of Rights.
