Injured Workers' Day

Wednesday, June 1, 2011 - 15:00 to 17:00

This is the 28th annual Injured Workers' Day. Come show your support and solidarity with injured workers who are demanding to be treated fairly, with respect and dignity, and that injury should not equal poverty. The worker's compensation system is failing those is was designed to protect. More and more workers are falling betwen the cracks, while others are victims of a system that places economics over compassionate care.

Everyone has the right to leave work healthy, and when injuries do occur workers must have the security that they will be compensated until they are fit to return to work. Workplace injuries can happen to anyone. Let's make sure that when they do that there is a system to take care of the wounded.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
