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

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:

At-will employment, LD553/HP398
This bill will prohibit an employer from terminating the employment of an employee without cause.

Discrimination based on natural hairstyles, LD598/SP237
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment and education based on hair texture or hairstyle.

Domestic violence victim discrimination, LD1294/SP422
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment based on an applicant seeking or receiving a protective order.

Racial impact statements, LD2/HP5
This bill will require the inclusion of racial impact statements in the legislative process,

Wage theft, LD616/HP452
This bill will increase accountability for wage violations.
