College of Justice & Safety Speaker Series - A Day's Work

Based on groundbreaking investigative reporting, A Day’s Work (documentary, 2015) reshaped perceptions of temp work and our safety on the job. The film screened at more than 100 public events across the country with unions, universities, government agencies, and community groups, raising the question to all working people, “What are we getting for a day’s work?” The film examines the landmark workplace death of 21-year-old Lawrence DaQuan “Day” Davis through the eyes of his family and the analysis of experts. Day was an employee of a temporary staffing agency working at the Bacardi bottling plant in Jacksonville Florida in 2012. He was killed 90 minutes into the first day of the job - the first job of his life. An investigation reveals the troubling issues that led to Day's death and how the $100 billion temporary staffing industry is putting millions of American workers at risk.
