    May Day: Workers Are the Strength of Nations Canadian Labour Congress
    Today, one in four Canadians between the ages of 25 and 64 must make do with temporary work, part-time jobs or precarious self-employment.

    Today, one in five Canadians is afraid of losing his or her job.

    And one in 10 or more of all full-time workers earns a poverty-level wage.

    The struggles of workers and their unions are the same all over the world. What we desire ourselves, we wish for all. An injury to one is an injury to all.

    This is why, on this International Workers’ Day, the 3 million members of the Canadian Labour Congress and their families reaffirm this simple truth: the true strength of the country rests on the quality of life of its workers.
