Toronto East International Socialists panel discussion. Only a year ago, politicians were falling over themselves applauding healthcare and other essential workers for the risks they take doing their work. When these same workers stand up for measures that would provide decent and safe working conditions and effective Covid policies, they are attacked by employers and governments who continue to put people’s lives at risk. Essential workers have been at the forefront of fighting for more effective and more just policies to tackle the pandemic, including fighting for paid sick days for workers with Covid symptoms.May 8 at 2 pm.
