A safe workplace with fair practices

All too often, women, especially low-wage workers, are forced to work in unsafe conditions, are notĀ given adequate safety gear, are denied adequate rest or break-time, and are forced to endure scheduling practices that make it impossible to work and raise a family. Low-wage and immigrant women often suffer from inconsistent and insufficient work hours that result in irregular earnings, making it hard to earn a living, care for families, and obtain public benefits.

Women deserve safe and fair working conditions and practices. This includes better enforcement of existing workplace safety requirements, safety education that is language accessible, fair scheduling practices, break time, sick time, and support for on-the-job injuries.
