Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Arizona
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 criminal history inquiry, SB 1507
This bill will make it unlawful to inquire from a job applicant information relating to arrests or conviction of crimes and criminal record, with exceptions.
Paid family and medical leave, HB 2499, SB 1644/HB 2767
We all do better when the underrepresented and vulnerable are protected under the law and treated with dignity and respect. We have the resources to provide a high quality of life for all as long as we have the political will. Support paid family and medical leave and paid sick leave.
Pay disclosure, SB 1548
Employers can hide discriminatory pay practices by discouraging employees from talking about their pay. This bill will allow employees to talk about their pay if they choose.
Sexual orientation and gender identity, HB 2630
It should be unlawful for employers to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
