Current Campaigns

Ban the Box

We believe in equal opportunity for everyone and an end to employment discrimination against the formerly incarcerated. This is why 9to5 Wisconsin has led campaigns in Milwaukee and Racine to remove the conviction history check box and other application questions about a person’s criminal background.

Paid Family Leave

No one should have to choose between a paycheck and the health and well-being of their family. We’re working to create a statewide paid leave insurance program allowing Wisconsin workers to take up to 12 weeks paid time off for personal illness, family illness, or the birth or adoption of a new child.

Social Good Ordinances

We want to encourage employers to adopt progressive workplace policies with social good ordinances. This would give extra points to companies bidding for a contract with the city if they have any of the following policies: ban the box, living wages, paid sick days, paid family leave, breastfeeding accommodations.
