Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Georgia
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 natural hair styles, SB82
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment, public accommodations, and housing and create a cause of action against employers who discriminate.
This bill will increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour.
This bill will provide paid sick leave.
Pay disclosure, HB411
This bill will make it unlawful for an employer or employer's agent to screen applicants based on their salary history, including, but not limited to, requiring that an applicant's prior salary history satisfy minimum or maximum criteria or seek the salary history of an applicant from such applicant or his or her current or former employer.
