A free showing of: A Day's Work

On November 28th, in partnership with the Labor Resource Center - University of Massachusetts Boston, we are pleased to invite you to a special free showing of the 2015 documentary: A Day’s Work. Light refreshments will be served.

The film examines the landmark workplace death of 21-year-old Lawrence DaQuan “Day” Davis. Day was an employee of a temporary staffing agency working at the Bacardi bottling plant in Jacksonville Florida in 2012. He was killed 90 minutes into the first day of the job - the first job of his life. The film explores the troubling issues that led to Day's death and how the $100 billion temporary staffing industry is putting millions of American workers at risk.

After the film, Executive Director Desario will join representatives from the Labor Resource Center and MassCOSH for a question and answer panel discussion on temp labor in Greater Boston and around the nation.

There are limited seats available for this special event and tickets will be given away “first come, first served.” To claim your ticket(s), please email jeff.newton@masscosh.org

A recent Chicago Tribune review called the film "a smartly crafted documentary about the dangers faced by temporary workers."
