We need secure schedules that help us bring work, life, and family back into balance.
Everyone should have the right to know when they’re going to work and how many hours they’re going to get, but regular, full-time jobs are becoming a thing of the past. Instead, it seems like either you don’t get enough hours to pay the bills, or you get stuck with a workload that never ends — and you might not know which one it’s going to be until the workweek has already gotten started.
By requiring big employers to offer every worker advance notice of shifts, a right to rest, and access to hours, we can bring our worklives into balance and ensure everyone has the time they need to plan their budget, care for their families, and live their lives.
It's time to ensure we have secure schedules that respect that our time counts, too.
