Justice at Work for Lone Mothers in BC (‘Justice at Work’) is a research project conducted through a partnership between the Single Mothers’ Alliance of BC and Dr. Lea Caragata from the University of British Columbia. Justice At Work aims to investigate the impact of the pandemic on lone-mothers at work and on fixed incomes. We want to learn more about how COVID-19 has affected women in BC and will use the information we collect to try to press for changes in wages, opportunities and working conditions to end poverty for lone-mother led families in BC.
