Toronto’s labour market is challenging for many workers who are seeking secure, high quality jobs. These labour market conditions, as described in the staff report, Quality Jobs, Living Wages and Fair Wages, are a major contributor to rising inequality in the city. It is therefore timely that the Executive Committee is considering issues of job quality. There are economic and legal constraints on the labour market policies available to the City. However, procurement policies and a fair wage policy are both available and effective ways for the City to improve job quality for Torontonians.
