Our job can help to keep us healthy or can make us sick, whether it’s hazards in the workplace, how much stress we’re under, or how little we get paid. There is plenty of international data making the link between income and health. A key contributor to this growing inequality in Ontario is the labour market. Mid-level jobs are disappearing and jobs at the bottom end are often temporary, part time, with poor pay and poor benefits. New jobs created in Ontario since the recession unfortunately fall into this category. Precarious employment adds to the growing strain on an already pressed labour market and economy. When candidates ask you for your vote, ask them what their plan is to create good jobs in Ontario, and how are they going to turn bad jobs into good jobs.
