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

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:

Criminal history, S120
This bill will prohibit employers and employment agencies from seeking the criminal record or criminal history from applicants for employment under certain circumstances and provide penalties.

Minimum wage, S235
Employees should not have to work multiple jobs to pay for basic living expenses. This bill will require employers to pay employees a minimum wage of $15 per hour as of July 2023.

Healthy and Safe Family and Workplace Act, S95
This bill will require minimum paid sick and safe time for employees.

Pay disclosure, S396
This bill will make illegal an employer's inquiry of a prospective employee's wage or salary history before an offer of employment has been negotiated and made to the prospective employee. Employees will also be allowed to talk about their salaries with others.

Pregnancy discrimination, S435
These bills will require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for pregnant workers.

Wage theft, S122
This bill provides penalties for employers who withhold wages.
