DC workers and families need and deserve stable hours and predictable schedules, yet many work for employers who keep them guessing, wreaking havoc on their personal lives. On Tuesday June 28th, the DC City Council pushed off a vote on the Hours and Scheduling Stability Act until at least mid-July, which would have helped remedy this issue. “This bill would provide retail and food service workers in the District of Columbia's private sector with some form of workplace stability that everyone needs and deserves to have a healthy and productive life,” said Metro Washington Council Political and Legislative Coordinator David Dzidzienyo. City Council members are currently facing tremendous pressure to vote against this bill. So, click here and make your voice heard by telling your representative that you expect them to vote in favor of this bill. – Christian Berk
