Many of the frontline health and social service workers taking care of the elderly, the sick, children, and people with disabilities are women.
The risk of outbreaks in their places of work are real and high. We need to make sure we have a plan in place that protects them, our communities, and the recovery.
Many care workers are also racialized, new to Canada or working here temporarily. They are underpaid, overworked, and overlooked. We need to fix this now.
Email your elected representatives that Canada needs a jobs plan that doesn’t leave women behind.
