How Elites Use the Legal System to Hurt Workers

with JUDY FUDGE

A groovy discussion with labour law professor Judy Fudge on how the ruling class uses the legal system to weaken unions, exploit precarious front-line and gig workers, and take advantage of the temporary foreign worker program. We touch on the history of Canadian unionization movements and what this has meant for women and other marginalized communities, and outline some important ways that workers can continue this struggle moving forward.
