Montreal, May 1, 2020. As part of the May First International Labour Day celebrations, and as Quebec prepares to slowly reopen the economy, the Immigrant Workers Centre has brought together workers to express their solidarity and to share their experiences of precarious work.
The group claims that workers providing essential services to all the people of Quebec should stand together in solidarity. “We work as caregivers, cleaners, we process and prepare food, we drive goods, we distribute goods, we are cashiers in stores… Our work should have value now and after this pandemic,” the group said.
