October 7 World Day for Decent Work
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the World Day for Decent Work. Millions of people have taken part in WDDW events since 2008. Decent work must be at the centre of government actions to bring back economic growth and build a new global economy that puts people first.
Decent work means ensuring that minimum wage-floors must be enough to ensure a decent standard of living, and that all workers must have the right to join a union and bargain collectively.
The 2018 theme, “Change the Rules”, highlights the deeply entrenched injustice of the global economic system alongside shrinking democratic space and deteriorating labour rights in many countries, documented in the ITUC Global Rights Index.
