Inequality, employment and COVID-19 - Priorities for fostering an inclusive recovery in BC
This report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (BC Office) describes changes in employment throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery, including higher job losses and slower economic recovery among lower-paid workers in part-time, temporary, and precarious employment (often women and racialized people). Policy recommendations for a more just and inclusive economy include large-scale, people centric public investments in physical and social infrastructure, labour market reforms, and an overhaul of income and social support systems.
