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.
