Action Alert: Workers' Action Centre

Feast for Fairness

Join us at a Feast for Fairness at Toronto’s St. Lawrence Market!  Help us win a minimum wage increase for all workers!

St. Lawrence Market
Meet at the corner of Front St. E and Jarvis.
(1 block south of King St. E) Toronto

Look who’s putting food on our table
This Thanksgiving weekend, many low-wage workers are resorting to food banks in order to get by and restaurant workers continue to see their wages stagnate. Many migrant workers are excluded from minimum wage laws altogether.

Join the Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage  and Migrant Workers Alliance for Change as we demand an immediate increase to the minimum wage to $14 and ending minimum wage exemptions for all workers!

Under the banner of “Poverty Wages? NO THANKS!” this event will be just one of many province-wide actions taking place around the Thanksgiving weekend calling for a $14 minimum wage, and in alliance with the Raise the Rates Week of Action from Oct. 14-20.

Make it Right Campaign

The Migrant Workers Alliance for Change is launching a new provincial campaign to ensure migrant workers have the same rights and benefits as all Ontarians. For too long Ontario’s laws have excluded migrant workers.  This affects us all.  It’s time to Make It Right!

We are launching a new provincial campaign to ensure migrant workers have the same rights and benefits as all Ontarians. For too long Ontario’s laws have excluded migrant workers. This affects us all. It’s time to #MakeItRight. We are #InItTogether.

Our first action is a Feast for Fairness on Saturday, October 12, at 10:30am at St. Lawrence Market in Toronto.  More details..

All workers, including agriculture workers, should be protected equally under Ontario’s labour laws. All workers should be entitled to minimum wage and overtime. They should be able to enforce these rights without worrying about being too late or having to under-claim how much they are actually owed by employers. Learn more…

All workers should be protected from being charged illegal and exorbitant fees by recruiters and agencies. Recruiters and employers should be registered, and the provinces and feds should work together with workers’ home governments to make sure that protection is effective across all borders. Learn more…

Going home after work should be a relief but many migrant workers have no relief from the stress of work since they live at or near their workplace.  They deserve decent housing and this requires inspection, enforcement, regulation, and viable alternatives. Learn more…

Farm workers need strong health and safety protections at work; domestic workers should be included in occupational health and safety laws; and all migrants should have immediate access to health services and other benefits that all Ontarians get. Learn more…

Migrant workers need stronger protections to make workers rights complaints and proactive enforcement of their rights. Migrant workers should have the right to change employers and stay in the country for settlement or employment standards purposes. Learn more…

Tell the Leaders of Ontario’s Provincial Parties that they must work together to ensure migrant workers have the same rights and protections as all other Ontarians. Take action now!

action-alert

Get ready for September 14th!

September 14th is coming soon — the Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage’s second province-wide day of action for a $14 minimum wage!  This month we’ll be carrying out creative actions outside corporate targets who are board members of powerful lobby groups fighting to keep wages low.  You may be surprised to hear who’s on the list!  Stay tuned as we announce the full list next week!

Actions are being organized in Halton, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Peterborough, Sudbury, York Region, Cornwall, London, Toronto and more!   Check out 2 actions happening below.

$14 Minimum Wage Carnival

$14 Minimum Wage Carnival outside Toys “R” Us
Games, marching band and community outreach blitz!

Saturday Sept. 14, 1:00 pm

900 Dufferin Street, Dufferin Mall, Toronto
Meet at the north end of the mall on Dufferin Street.  You won’t be able to miss our banners!

Toys “R” Us made $13.5 billion in sales last year selling toys to kids and their families.

Toys “R” Us says they care about the community they serve. But Toys “R” Us chairs the board of directors of the Retail Council of Canada – an influential lobby group that is wanting to keep wages LOW for Ontario workers.  Help us tell Toys “R” Us that 1 in 7 kids in Ontario live in poverty. If they care about our communities they will support a minimum wage that brings families out of poverty!
