Journal article

Precarious Employment in the Canadian Labour Market : a Statistical portrait

Date

2003

Authors

Leah F Vosko, Cynthia Cranford, and Nancy Zukewich

Abstract

Workers across Canada are reporting widespread feelings of insecurity and with good reason. Canada's labour force is becoming more precarious with the growth of temporary and part-time wage work, own-account self-employment and other forms of employment that are not fully covered by labour laws
and policies. At the same time, regardless of employment form, more and more workers are earning
less money, working either too much or too little and have less control over their work. Many workers are also in precarious social locations because the growth of precarious employment is gendered and radicalized.
