New Report: "Working Rough, Living Poor"
About the report:
This report by the Income Security, Race and Health research working group established by Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services reveals how racialized people are being pushed into protracted conditions of precarious and ‘temp’ jobs, and how existing employment training services and job search supports often prove ineffective. The study also clearly illustrates the everyday pathways through which these employment and income insecurity challenges damage health within these groups. “Working Rough, Living Poor” is the result of research conducted in Toronto’s Black Creek community in collaboration with local residents trained to be community-based researchers by Access Alliance. The report’s new insights into the disturbing racialization of precarious employment and poverty in Canadian communities and the far-reaching health impact that these trends have on individuals and families, fills a key gap in data on the experiences of racialized groups in Canada. Below, you will also find 4 stand alone research bulletins that complements the key themes of the Working Rough, Living Poor report. Please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
