Seattle proposal tackles erratic schedules for hourly workers

The Fair Workweek Initiative is bringing the fight right to the backyard of Starbucks! Workers need higher wages AND fair hours in order to survive — and erratic schedules hit moms and women of color the hardest. But this groundbreaking legislation could change things for working families big time:

“Seattle’s “secure scheduling” proposal also would require retail and fast-food companies with 500 employees globally to compensate workers with “predictability pay” when they’re scheduled but don’t get called into work or are sent home early; provide a minimum 10 hours rest between open and closing shifts; and offer hours to existing employees before hiring new staff.”

As always, amazing work by Carrie Gleason, Elianne Farhat, Rachel Deutsch, Maggie Corser, Asya Pikovsky!
