Precarious workers video from Toronto Public Library

Watch this “…informative and emotional short film (19 minutes)…”  posted on the Our Public Library website sponsored by the Toronto Public Library Workers Union:



City Council’s neglect of Our Public Library regrettably extends to the people who work there. Precarious Work at the Toronto Public Library: Toronto’s Challenge reveals both the dedication to public service and the struggle to make ends meet by the 50 per cent of TPL workers who work in jobs that are part-time, insecure and without the normal benefits, including pensions, of most other City workers.”     – excerpt from Our Public Library website
