The teaching assistant (TA) strike at University of Toronto (U of T) has now passed the one week mark. TAs make $42.05 per hour, but hours are capped at 205 per year – much less, according to unions, than TAs are forced to work. Even at that cap, their salary, at around $15,000 on average, puts them below Canada’s poverty line. As of publication, York University is also on strike over similar concerns, but has shut down classes, while U of T goes on.
