A conversation about the hours crisis facing LA workers

Fair Workweek Forum Banner

Unpredictable hours and last minute, fluctuating work schedules cause tremendous insecurity for LA's hourly workers, making it difficult to predict income, attend school, hold down another part-time job, or care for children. Women disproportionally bear the brunt of these policies because they hold the majority of low-paying jobs in the retail and service sectors, and are more likely to be single parents or primary caregivers.

In Los Angeles, retail workers are particularly hard hit by unstable hours and exploitative scheduling practices. Employers regularly schedule workers on-call with no guarantee of work, change shifts at the last minute, or send workers home early without compensation. It's estimated up to 93% of LA's retail workers are impacted by these unfair practices. 

Please join Fair Workweek-LA and Public Counsel's Audrey Irmas Project for Women & Girls' Rights to learn more about this important issue and explore policy solutionsCities around the country are responding to the call for a fair and family sustaining workweek — join us to learn about how Los Angeles could be next!
