Struggles of the Working Class

Struggles of the Working Class


10 hours

Most students become members of the working class. Yet many exit the school system with very little or no preparatory knowledge of what they are about to enter... Students will learn about the struggles of their ancestors and the working class. They will learn about the Labour Code, bargaining agents, collective bargaining, collective agreements, contracts, non-disclosure agreements, and the rights and responsibilities of the worker. YEA students will know the history of the Labour Movements, and acquire reasons for supporting them.
