#TimesUp on Worker Abuse

From the AFL-CIO

More than 2 million working people, mostly women, care for America’s homes and families, and more than 14 million workers have jobs in the restaurant industry. The members of the AFL-CIO support the freedom of these working people to raise pay and improve working conditions.

All working people must be safe at work, whether we work in a factory, a home, a restaurant or office.

We must be able to fight against wage theft, and to exercise our freedom to raise our pay and work in safety.

That’s why we organize, because we’re stronger when we use our freedoms of speech and assembly to advance the issues that mean the most to us and our communities.

America’s union movement supports the freedom of all working people to negotiate with their employers to raise pay and improve working conditions.

26 years: That’s how long it’s been since the federal minimum wage for tipped workers has remained at $2.13 per hour.
