2.1773 Minimum Wages vs. The Working Poor.
This study examines the potential effects of Canada's minimum wage policy and finds that, based on the available evidence, certain sectors of Canada's workforce have the potential of be being negatively affected by minimum wage policies. Increased unemployment among lower wage workers and increased poverty are the policy's most visible consequences. Here, critical look at the country's minimum wage policy is taken and its negative qualities are brought to the fore. In the final analysis, it is argued that minimum wage policy is something that should be carefully reconsidered, if not abolished outright. 8 pgs. 22 f/c. 6b.

3.1824 International Unionism & Industrial Relations in Canada.
The following is a paper and analysis on the topic of 'International' trade unionism, and the respective impact this has on Canadian Industrial Relations. It will be argued that the broader notion of 'international' in a Canadian context, has more implications when seen in terms of industry and in turn, labour within the U.S. economy. The thesis of this paper, argues that as North American industries expand their 'branch plant' economies into the underdeveloped nations, the bargaining strength and position of the unions in Canada become weakened. 5 pgs. 16 f/c. 5b.

4.2006 Solutions to High Unemployment.
There are a number of authors that have concluded that there is not much that can be done about high unemployment. In an inter-linked world that is increasingly governed by high technology and service oriented economies, many have come to accept that Canada's natural rate of unemployment is simply higher than other countries; the US in particular. This, however, is untrue. There is something that can be done about high unemployment. This paper will provide proof to support this assertion. It will show that there are several so-called 'home grown' factors that have sparked Canada's unemployment spiral. One way or another, all of them can be controlled. But, change does not come without its costs. 19 pgs. 26 f/c. 12b.

5.2046 The Future of Organized Labour in Canada.
The face of labour in Canada is quickly changing. The number of blue-collar jobs has been declining for years in such areas as resource industry, construction, manufacturing, and so on, where unionization has traditionally been the most common. Present and future jobs in the so-called post-industrial society are to be found in sales and services, especially in the private sector. These jobs are typically diverse, part time, poorly paid, and thus difficult, if not impossible, to organize. This paper will look at the effects of the present and emerging economy on organized labour in Canada. 10 pgs. 14 f/c. 6b.
