In this document, 2020-2021 Atkinson Fellow in Public Policy, Stephanie Nolen, shares the stories of people in Canada who were vulnerable to COVID-19, or made newly vulnerable by the virus, and how public policy shaped their pandemic experience. The author followed working women, migrant workers and asylum seekers, and those who had no place to “just stay at home” as the virus surged.
This series of articles mentions several organizations, groups, and networks that advocate for pragmatic policy changes whose time has come: a national child care system, permanent status for migrant workers, paid sick days, and more. This document may be of particular interest to readers who are already actively engaged in the movement for decent work and a fair economy.
