Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Alaska
Workers deserve more rights
We live in a culture where corporations simply have too much power. Currently, they can:
- Ask us to sign away our rights
- Push us out of our jobs for any reason or no reason
- Work while grieving a loved one
- Check our credit in the hiring process
- Fail to conduct investigations for reports of sexual harassment
- Discriminate against those suffering from domestic violence
- Retaliate against injured workers
- Make it difficult for us to leave toxic workplaces when our healthcare is tied to our jobs
- Silence us when we've been abused
- Pay some workers below minimum wage
- Not grant sufficient sick leave amid COVID-19
- Conduct abusive scheduling practices
- Avoid accountability for discrimination through wages and promotions
- Steal wages
- Block public employees from striking
- Ask about our desired salary ranges, which has a discriminatory impact
- Verbally abuse and sabotage workers with zero accountability
We can change this toxic culture for workers through by passing these bills into law:
Ban of discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, HB99
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment based on sexual orientation and gender expression.
Paid family leave, HB 100
This bill grants paid leave to for teachers and public employees.
Ban of discrimination based on natural hair styles, HB312
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment, public accommodations, and housing and create a cause of action against employers who discriminate.
Pay disclosure, SB39
An employer may not prohibit an employee or applicant for employment from disclosing the employee's or applicant's compensation or discussing or asking about the compensation of another or ask an applicant for employment about compensation the applicant may have received from another employer.
Pay equity, minimum wage, and wage discrimination based on sex, HB48
This bill will require the State Commission for Human Rights to create an annual report concerning the payment of equal pay for comparable work; increasing the minimum wage; and relating to and prohibiting wage discrimination based on the sex of an employee.
