Focuses on the effects Bill C-12 will have on women as individual workers, particularly those in part-time, low-waged, seasonal and unstable jobs. Discusses the overall impact of the legislation on women and their families in the context of high unemployment and the crisis in the fisheries in Nova Scotia. Argues that the legislation could have devastating consequences, especially in rural areas of the province where jobs of any kind are scare and unemployment is particularly high. Also raises concerns about the erosion of gains made in the area of maternity and parental benefits.
