Public Engagement in Experiential Futures

Workers safety

Newcomers are willing to take high risks on their safety in order to maintain work. At the same time, workplace safety for entry level positions are not a priority for corporations as workers are easily replaceable due to the scarcity of job opportunities. Workers rights within employment laws have previously been curtailed in favor of private corporations’ interest as local economies have been dependent in the last years on corporate monopoly and jobs created from the rise of corporate power. Unable to rely on the system, newcomers turn to community support for protection. As such, social capital is an extremely important asset for newcomers.
