Diversity, Justice And Solidarity At Work
This course examines diversity, justice and solidarity at work, including demands for equity and inclusion, trade union and human rights initiatives. Examples of Canadian and international labour market inequalities are explored, including the strategies adopted by community and labour organizations to achieve social, political and economic justice. Part one examines how class, gender, race, ethnicity, and citizenship status affect the composition of labour markets and workplaces. Part two analyses the relationship of the workplace to broader social structures, such as neoliberalism, patriarchy, heteronormativity, ethnic and racial hierarchies. Part three considers how global labour market restructuring has impacted inequality inside and outside of the spheres of paid and unpaid employment.
