The MANITOBA TEN DAYS COMMITTEE is an inter-church organization for development eduction. As part of on-going activities around the TEN DAYS theme "Making a Living," the Manitoba committee in October 1981, sponsored a consultation between Manitoba church and labour leaders to discuss areas of common concern and learn more about one another. A similar gathering is planned for the fall of 1982. The COMMITTEE is conducting research into conditions of work in the needle trades. Winnipeg's garment industry, the second largest in Canada, is a low-wage job ghetto for many women, most of them immigrants. The COMMITTEE is also acting as a consultant on the theology of work to the Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature, which is preparing a major exhibition on the theme of work. The exhibition will open in September 1982 and run for 10 months.
This organization no longer exists.
