Covid 19: Who will pay for the crisis?

30/05/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

As the global crisis unfolds, the capitalist class is scrambling to restart the economy and resume the business of profit-making. And as the economy is opened up, the temporary measures designed to support workers are coming under increasing attack from big business and their representatives in government. Workers everywhere face an uncertain future.

What are the challenges and opportunities facing the workers’ movement, here and around the world? How can we organize to ensure that bosses pay for the crisis, not workers? What do we need to do right now to prepare workers for the challenges ahead?

On Saturday, May 30 at 2:00 pm EDT, join Spring Magazine for this important roundtable discussion featuring:

Radhika Desai: Professor, Dept of Political Studies, University of Manitoba, Director of Geopolitical Economy Research Group

Janice Folk-Dawson: Executive Vice-President, Ontario Federation of Labour
