Since June 2021, the GLRC has been conducting an interview series titled "Workers' Stories in the COVID-19 Era," aimed at building a collection of worker narratives during the pandemic.
For May Day 2022, we present our research assistants' reflections on the interview series. What have these interviews taught them about workers’ experiences? Has the pandemic shifted workers’ situations? How have workers tried to resist during the pandemic?
The project is led by GLRC Executive Ethel Tungohan (Associate Professor & Canada Research Chair, Politics). Interviews were conducted and edited by Christina Love (Undergraduate Student, Indigenous Studies and French), Tinu Koithara Mathew (PhD Candidate, Human Resources Management), and Suzanne Spiteri (PhD, Sociology).
