Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Louisiana
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:
Medical history discrimination, SB200
This bill will prohibit discrimination based on medical history.
Minimum wage, HB374
This bill will raise the minimum wage to $14 per hour over time.
Pay disclosure, SB148/HB283
This bill will make it unlawful for an employer to ask a prospective employee about wage history.
Pay equity, SB93
This bill will grant a woman who is employed in the state of Louisiana to be paid the same compensation for her service as is paid to a man who performs the same kind, grade, and quality of service, and a distinction in compensation shall not be made because of sex.
Sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination, HB40
This bill will expand anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
