The Schedules that Work Act Will Protect the Rights of Working People

Statement by AFL-CIO Secretary Treasurer Liz Shuler on Members of Congress reintroducing the Schedules that Work Act:

Too many hardworking Americans face difficult situations due to erratic employer scheduling, especially women and low-wage workers. By prioritizing fair scheduling as a key component of economic stability, the Schedules that Work bill will protect the rights and wages of working people. Thanks to the leadership of Senators Elizabeth Warren, Patty Murray and Chris Murphy and Representatives Rosa DeLauro and Bobby Scott, working people are one step closer to having federal guidelines that require employers offer fair, flexible and reliable schedules for all employees.

The Schedules that Work Act will ensure working people can earn a decent living while still enjoying their family life.
