Irregular Work Schedules

Too many large companies are using workers’ low wages and irregular, part-time schedules to drive their profits. And, these companies typically do not provide health insurance coverage or child care benefits to their low-wage employees, or do not give them sufficient hours to qualify for such benefits. This leaves working families living on the brink, forced to rely on publicly funded health care and early childhood programs to make ends meet. The billions of dollars large companies make as a result of these irregular hours are subsidized by us, the taxpayers – its time for companies to pay  for what they are doing to the future of our economy.
