Craig Heron is one of Canada's leading labour historians. Drawing together fifteen of Heron's new and previously published essays on working-class life in Canada, Working Lives covers a wide range of issues within working-class life, including politics, culture, gender, wage-earning and union organization. A timely contribution to the evolving field of labour in Canada, this cohesive collection of essays analyzes the daily experiences of people working across Canada over more than two hundred years.

Honest in its depictions of the historical complexities of daily life, Working Lives raises issues in the writing of Canadian working-class history, especially 'working-class realism,' and how it is eventually inscribed into Canada's public history. Thoughtfully reflecting on the ways in which workers interact with the past, Heron discusses the important role historians and museums play in remembering the adversity and milestones experienced by Canada's working class.
