Payday (Series) (1973-1975)

Payday dealt with issues of industry and organized labour, although, of course, without evidently siding with either unions or management. The first season of eight programs confronted such subjects as white collar organized labour, strikebreaking, the reeducation of workers, pensions, working women, and national and international unions. Later programs dealt with labour and the Alberta oil industry, flight attendants, the North Atlantic fishing industry, arbitration, using the example of Australian companies and workers, mining in the Yukon Territory, forestry in B.C., the Canadian Labour Congress, the Labour Peace Commission, immigrant labour, and health issues and unions.
