Job Schedules Matter

Job schedules matter in many ways. For all workers, it helps when an employer is responsive to a request for a needed schedule change. Too many workers have volatile and potentially destabilizing schedules. Just ask Starbucks and Walmart workers! If you don't know when you are supposed to be at work until the last minute, how do you arrange child care or transportation? If your total hours fluctuate from week to week, how do you budget for rent and food?

Hear the latest from leaders in the U.S. House and Senate about why they have introduced legislation to tackle these issues; from worker-leaders about their experiences and suggestions; and from child care and other experts on concrete steps to take. Whether you are new to the issue of job schedules or steeped in a local campaign, these three audio conference calls are a chance to learn new facts, tips, and strategies.
