Tell Congress to Support the Fair Minimum Wage Act

At just $7.25 an hour, today's federal minimum wage leaves a full-time working mom with two children thousands of dollars below the poverty line. The Fair Minimum Wage Act would give millions of workers a much-needed raise, including more than 1 in 5 working mothers, by gradually increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour. Urge your Senators and Representative to support the Fair Minimum Wage Act. 

Tell Congress to Stand with Survivors of Sexual Assault

One out of every five women is sexually assaulted while in college. Given the numbers, colleges and universities should be working nonstop to address this crisis. But many campuses provide no sexual assault response training for their staff — and dozens of colleges and universities across the country are under investigation by the U.S. Department of Education because they’ve been accused of mishandling sexual assault cases. Send a message to Congress urging them to support survivors of campus sexual assault. 

Urge Your Members of Congress to Co-sponsor the Schedules That Work Act

Urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Schedules That Work Act. This bill is an important step toward providing baseline labor protections from abusive scheduling practices and giving workers a say in their schedules. This bill would make our economy work better for everyone. Please urge your Members of Congress to sign on as a co-sponsor.

Tell the Senate to Co-sponsor the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act is a common-sense piece of legislation that would require employers to make reasonable accommodations when workers need them because of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions — just as they are already required to do for disabilities. Tell your Senators to support the Pregnant Worker Fairness Act. 

Tell Your Senators to Pass the Paycheck Fairness Act

The Paycheck Fairness Act would deter wage discrimination by closing loopholes in the Equal Pay Act and barring retaliation against workers who disclose their wages to co-workers. Urge the Senate to support equal pay by passing the Paycheck Fairness Act.
