Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in California

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:

Bereavement leave, AB95
This bill calls for up to 10 days to unpaid bereavement leave.

Medicare For All, AB1400, ACA11
Citizens should not have to have full-time work to have preventative medical care. Tying health care to work leaves employers with too much power.

Pay equity, AB316
Existing law prohibits employers from paying any of its employees at wage rates less than the rates paid to employees of the opposite sex or another race or ethnicity for substantially similar work, when viewed as a composite of skill, effort, and responsibility, and performed under similar working conditions, unless the employer demonstrates the wage differential is based upon specified factors including, but not limited to, a seniority system, a merit system, or a system that measures earnings based on quality or quantity of production. This bill would require a report and plan for pay equity in state agencies.
