I have also worked mostly indoors; generally fast food establishments. I feel my rights were respected the most when I worked as a supervisor at SUBWAY. We were encouraged to report any potential health or safety violations, and were even pampered a bit by having a flexible schedule. The only concern I had working there was that there were no alloted breaks. Other than that, things were pretty good.

We are taking a break today. In Canada, December 25 is a statutory holiday.

Statutory holidays are days designated by government to mark or commemorate some special occasion or event. Employees who qualify get a paid holiday. If they have to work they get paid extra.

If you have today off, have a great day. If you have to work, we hope that you get paid extra and enjoy the extra money.

I have worked indoors and outdoors, and with a lot of people.

I was working at an activity center with children of all ages, and doing different outings with them.

This is the only job I have worked, so therefore this was my best work place.

I felt my rights were respected at this job.

where we work 17

I have worked indoors and outdoors but I prefer to work indoors because I don't like cold or windy weather. I have worked at the University in the cafeteria. I volunteered at school as a janitor for about three years. I also worked as a cleaner in a person's home and got paid for it. I kind of enjoyed working at ARC Industries where I answered the phones. I previously worked at a Mac Store in Thunder Bay and actually, I still work there. I like to work at Macs.

I have never had a paying job, I have volunteered lots of places. I have a disability called Cerebral Palsy. I am in a wheelchair and have limited use of my hands. Most of the places I volunteer is in nursing homes. My voice works well. I can sit and talk to seniors very well. This is an important job because it helps to lift them up.

where we work 11

I have almost always worked indoors.

I usually work with other people and like being part of a team.

I work in a public school, a non-profit adult learning centre, and outside in the summer months conducting various tours of our city with the cruise ship passengers.

I love interacting with others and work best in a sharing environment.

One of my jobs is unionized - so yes, it does make you feel safer knowing you have someone backing you up. The other 2 jobs I feel respected as well.

*i want to say that i always have worked at both jobs that were indoor and outdoor jobs i have always worked well with people and by my self but if i was to pick my favorite job of all it would be working with all animals because they are gods creations i also enjoy working with children and the elderly because it brings joy to my life

*I've worked in offices, maintenance team with the city of Madoc (outdoors), I've worked fast foods, janitorial, umm that's all I can think of at this moment. I've also done volunteering at a Horse Farm and a Veterinarians office. The best place where I would like to work is with animals, that is where my heart truly lies. I've never worked in a place that I took seriously (Mcdonalds, Tim Hortons, office job) that I cared much about my rights at the time, to me at the time it was a pay cheque, now that I'm much older I realize a job is a responsibility in order to live and maintain a more stable financial situation and future outlook for my children and I.

where we work 6

I worked in a Bakery. I didn't like it there because I felt that I wasn't being respected. My first week of work was very difficult because I was told that I could have my breaks whenever I wanted to. So I went with it I would work for two or three hours and then take a break. My boss came in one day and told me that I could have no more breaks, and that no one else could.

I would like to work as a nurse later on in life, but for now I am working in food services.I love it there I have been treated with respect and got told what I was supposed to do and it's a great environment.

And another student responded:

I'm sorry that your experience at the bakery was terrible. You should follow your dream to be a nurse. Good luck
