I just wanted to send out one last reminder that *tomorrow* we are
showing /A Day’s Work/, a hard-hitting documentary exploring how
temporary employment is being used to strategically dismantle the
relationship between employers and employees, with workers losing rights
we have considered sacrosanct for decades.
This free and easy to get to event (click here for directions
is our latest effort to spread awareness of what the temporary
employment economy is costing the working class. Just let me know if you
would like to attend and I will save a seat for you (guests are also
After the 55 minute film, we will be joined by A Day’s Work Executive
Producer and a panel of experts to answer all the questions you may have
about the film or how this new industry is changing employment as we
know it. I look forward to hearing from you!

The Labor Resource Center <http://www.umb.edu/lrc> in partnership with
Mass COSH <http://www.masscosh.org/> is pleased to present a showing of
the thought-provoking documentary /A Day's Work/. The film examines the
landmark workplace death of 21-year-old Lawrence DaQuan “Day” Davis. Day
was an employee of a temporary staffing agency working at the Bacardi
bottling plant in Jacksonville Florida in 2012. He was killed 90 minutes
into the first day of the job. The film explores the troubling issues
that led to Day's death and how the $100 billion temporary staffing
industry is putting millions of workers at risk every day.
After the showing, the film's director David Desario will join
representatives from the Labor Resource Center and MassCOSH for a
question and answer and panel discussion on temp labor in Greater Boston
and around the nation.
Light refreshments will be served.
