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, SB92
This bill will prohibit discrimination based on medical history.
Minimum wage, HB880
This bill will raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour over time.
One fair wage for tipped employees, HB472
This bill will guarantee that tipped workers make at least the federal minimum wage when combined with tips.
Paid Family and Medical Leave Act, SB289, HB1003
This bill will make employees eligible for paid sick leave and paid family and medical leave.
Pay disclosure, S410
This bill will make it unlawful for an employer to ask a prospective employee about wage history.
Pay equity, HB219
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, HB439
This bill will expand anti-discrimination protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
