Knit Activism: cash corner






Okay, the last few posts have been about organizations, so I'm gonna shake it up a bit. This piece was put up at "Cash corner" what is cash corner you ask? it is a place where people, majority of them homeless congregate downtown Calgary, and employers needing day labour head down there to "head hunt" basically. I have heard some extremely rough stories of cash corners, of guys fighting over jobs and of guys being ripped off by the employer which results in the labourer making some pretty scary threats. So I thought they could use some advice and let them know they should "Play Nice"


I purposefully went in the late afternoon thinking that no one would be there anymore but there were several guys sitting along the side walk, this would explain for no wider shots.
