Across the country, working people struggling on the frontlines of America’s service economy are standing up for jobs that deliver stability and respect. Millions of working people scramble with ever-changing workweeks that cause volatile incomes and strain families – making it hard to make ends meet and impossible to get ahead.
Join us on August 2, 2017 from 12:00-1:00pm ET for a funders webinar to learn more about this new movement for a family-sustaining workweek that cuts across civic engagement and workforce development strategies, as well as the increasing role technology, is playing in determining economic outcomes for millions of workers. We'll discuss:
Unprecedented policy momentum including this year's historic statewide win in Oregon and new standards in six cities;
Powerful worker-led campaigns that moved the retail sector to end on-call scheduling and are showing us the path to creating good jobs in growing retail and food service industries; and
Innovative strategies to build the voice of service sector workers in their workplaces, with policymakers, and at the ballot box in important cities and states across the country.
