Hourly low wage workers are some of the most vulnerable when it comes to being taken advantage of by their employers. While workers and advocates continue to fight for fair wages and workplaces, we're working to educate people about their rights. We've recently added a new page of FAQ's about Flexible and Predictive Scheduling. Take a look, and share this information with hourly workers as we all stand up for fair workplaces.

Share this newsletter with someone you know who wants to stay informed about labor and employment issues. We'll be staying on top of the latest news and advocacy actions to keep our workplaces safe and fair.
