WEC Partners with New Labor for Film Screening
WEC was pleased to co-host a film screening of the documentary
"A Day's Work" with our friends from New Labor on November 12. More than 125 attendees joined us for the screening and discussion afterward. The film highlights the tragic story of Day Davis, a young worker who died at work within hours of starting a new job, 
and illustrates how the temporary staffing industry is putting millions of American workers at risk. Executive Producer Dave DeSario told a packed room, "The data is conclusive: temporary workers are at least 50% more likely to be injured on the job. But the temp industry continues to deny the facts, putting workers in danger and misleading clients." 
Stay tuned for more on this issue in the future.
