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!
