The work we do is central to our lives, our communities, and the economy: we all deserve decent work
The conditions of our work make the difference between healthy, vibrant lifestyles and an exploitative labour market. They make the difference between good and poor physical and mental health. There's no question, decent work means being paid a living wage, having paid vacation and sick days, worker's rights in the workplace, employment and pay equity. Decent work includes a government that regulates the labour market to ensure workers' health and safety rights are protected. Where and how we work is a key determinant of our health. We all deserve to be healthy. We all deserve decent work.
