"The Ontario government is reviewing the province's Employment Standards Act (esa) and Ontario Labour Relations Act (olra). This study draws on Statistics Canada data to track a growing reliance on low-wage, precarious employment in Ontario and how precariously employed workers have less access to the protections of membership in a trade union.
