Canadian Premiere of "A Day's Work" - Documentary Screening

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.

Special Guests:

• Dave DeSario, A Day's Work Executive Producer, Film-maker, Founding Member of the Alliance for the American Temporary Workforce (AATW)
• Injured workers and temp agency workers will be speaking about their experiences and the changes that are being fought for in the Changing Workplace Review (the Ontario Government's review of labour laws).

Ninety minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, 21-year-old Day Davis texted a picture of himself to his girlfriend, excited for their future. Now Day's sister, 17-year-old Antonia, searches for answers.
