A Day's Work Canadian Premiere says
On June 1, 2016 Injured Workers Day, join us for a free screening of the award-winning documentary A Day's Work which exposes the harsh conditions faced by temp agency workers. Temp agency workers are particularly vulnerable to health and safety risks because temp agencies and client companies are not jointly responsible for workplace injuries.
