USA: A DAY’S WORK – world premiere

90 minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, 21-year-old Day Davis texted a selfie to his girlfriend, excited for their future. Now Day’s younger sister Antonia searches for answers. An investigation reveals how the $100B temporary staffing industry endangers American workers. The company hiring temps does not consider them “real” employees, while the temp agency may not take responsibility for thorough training. The screening of this film at Reel Work 2015 will be its world premiere.
