Confronting precarious employment
The unfortunate reality of today’s economy is that many workers are precariously employed—working in jobs that are part-time, seasonal or contract.
What can be done to mitigate their labour market insecurity?
This concern drives the research of Leah F.
Vosko, Canada Research Chair in the Political Economy of Gender and Work.
Vosko is internationally recognized for her work in political economy and her writing on such topics as work, gender, citizenship, migration and labour markets.
Vosko’s research will shape how policy-makers, academics and the general public understand labour market membership, with the goal of better protecting precarious workers.
