Workers' COVID-19 Stories

We are excited to add a new series to our COVID-19 and the World of Work hub. Workers' Stories in the COVID-19 Era is a dialogue series aimed at building a collection of worker narratives during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is led by GLRC Executive Ethel Tungohan (Assistant Professor & Canada Research Chair, Politics), with a team of undergraduate and graduate students at York University: Christina Love (Undergraduate Student, Indigenous Studies and French), Tinu Koithara Mathew (PhD Candidate, Human Resources Management), and Suzanne Spiteri (PhD Candidate, Sociology).

The first installment, “You Begin To Feel Less than Human”: Student-Workers Discuss Work and "Blurring the Lines" During COVID-19, features three Canadian student-workers who share their working experiences during the pandemic. Read the full interview here.
