International Human Rights Day Poster Exhibition - "Work Right"

Published kenziecooke - Thu, 11/13/2014 - 7:50pm

Posters for Tomorrow brings their exhibition of 100 posters displayed in the CMC for the third year in a row! This year's theme is "Work Right", focusing on worker's rights.

The right to work isn’t the right to employment. Nobody has the right to a job. But everybody has the right to work in a secure, safe, fair working environment.  

We all have the right to work without discrimination or exploitation of our gender, age, nationality or physical condition. 

We all have the right to work for a wage that is fair reward for our labour and that will enable us to support ourselves and our families.

The right to work protects us from child labour, gender and age discrimination and exploitation in all its forms. It entitles us all to the same opportunities, benefits and protection from exploitation or malpractice.

We want to make everybody aware of their rights as a worker, whether it’s a a small boy working in a sweatshop, a woman being paid less than her male colleagues or a physically challenged man denied an office job because of his wheelchair. 

This has to stop. That’s why we say: employment, not exploitation.
