A Day’s Work
Start: Thursday, March 03, 2016• 5:00 PM
This event is co-sponsored by the AFL-CIO and the DC Labor FilmFest.
“A Day’s Work” tells the story of a young man who was killed on his very first day as a temporary employee. It raises serious concerns about the consequences of employers’ shift to a disposable, temporary workforce, revealing a hidden epidemic endangering millions of workers. Temp jobs drive down the wages, working conditions and bargaining power of ALL working people. This year, 14 million Americans will work a job through a temp agency.
“A rarity in the genre.” —Chicago Tribune
