the Poverty and Employment Precarity in Southern Ontario Research Alliance (PEPSO)
What is the Poverty and Employment Precarity in Southern Ontario Research Alliance?
This CURA will satisfy a research need identified by the UWT, and other community agencies, to gather data on trends in precarious employment and to encourage policy debate. Much of the evidence regarding precarious employment and its impact on households and communities is anecdotal and, without solid quantitative research, it has been impossible to influence public policy. The potential impact of the project is significant in that it offers a new way of understanding the implications of poverty in contemporary Canadian society by looking at one of its root causes, namely precarious employment. The project will leave a legacy of enhanced community capacity to conduct research and to advocate on behalf of those most affected by changing labour market dynamics.
