Economics and Labour Studies

Students interested in pursuing a degree in Economics should consider the possibility of pursuing a co-major degree in Economics and Labour Studies

Unemployment, productivity, strikes and lockouts, differences between union and non-union workplaces, discrimination and employment equity policies, compensating wage differentials for hazardous workplaces, and the allocation of time between market work and household work are some of the issues that stimulate teaching and research in Labour Studies.
