For millions of women, unpredictable, unstable work schedules over which workers have little control make it hard to pick up kids on time from child care, to work enough hours to make ends meet, or to attend classes that could lead to a better job.
Now there's a bill before Congress that could change that. The Schedules That Work Act, introduced by Senators Elizabeth Warren, Patty Murray, and Chris Murphy, and Representatives Rosa DeLauro and Bobby Scott, would be an important step toward protecting workers from abusive scheduling practices and giving workers a say in their schedules.
Urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Schedules That Work Act so women can work for a better future for themselves and their families.
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I ask you to support fair work schedules for employees by co-sponsoring the Schedules That Work Act.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
