Key informant interviews are wrapping up and there is lots of information to share! A report will be coming out this Fall highlighting the findings. Take a look at what interviewees had to say about defining precarious employment:
I think there are a lot of things that can make employment precarious, it’s not just about the money (Interviewee 2).
We have people working part-time and temporary jobs and people working minimum wage… in any of those conditions they may be unable to meet their financial commitments. We have a difference between voluntary and perhaps mandatory, or more circumstantial PE (Interviewee 3).
It doesn’t seem to matter where I go, if I’m talking to my local Ontario Employment Service provider or literacy and basic skills people…precarious precarious, precarious comes up (Interviewee 7).
