While the holiday is often a special time for many Ontarians, for many injured workers it is a time that only emphasizes the poverty and isolation we experience all year round. COVID-19 has only increased these problems.
This event – which traditionally takes places on the steps of the Ministry of Labour or WSIB but has been forced online by COVID – will be a mix of festive and political. Injured workers will be joined by teachers, union leaders, MPPs, and other allies to outline our demands, and celebrate the holiday season with singalongs and satire.
Help make this the last Christmas that injured workers needs to spend in poverty.
