We applaud Congress’ recognition of the need to address this important issue. The time has come to insure stability in work hours, compensation for time the employer requires employees to be available and the right of all workers to help craft schedules that work for both the employer and the employee.
The deliberately misnamed “Working Families Flexibility Act” (H.R. 1180) is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, purporting to offer flexibility to workers when, in reality, it will deprive workers of overtime pay. Join us in making sure the federal government doesn’t steal overtime pay from working people!
