Signs of the Times #56: Justice in the World of Work ft. Kevin Cassidy

Kevin Cassidy is the director of the International Labor Organization (ILO) Office for the United States and Canada. The ILO brings the government, workers, and employers to the table to discuss the issues that surround the world of work and was founded with social justice at the core of its mission. That core of social justice manifests itself in decent work, or the security of one’s job, being treated fairly, and having a voice in the workplace. We discuss the importance of a human centered approach to work which looks after the individual, the institutions, and how we push forward on making decent work available to all women and men around the world. Kevin shares how COVID-19 has impacted international employment and what recovery must entail if it’s to be successful.
