Today is Women’s Equality Day and we are calling for jobs that boost families and communities. 9to5 members in 21 cities across the country will be discussing the importance of family-flexible policies that allow people to care for themselves and their families without jeopardizing their jobs or economic security.
Take part in our photo campaign, and tell us what Time to Care means to you!
This week marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington when hundreds of thousands of people mobilized for equality, jobs and freedom. Enormous strides have been made, but we aren’t done yet. We must continue the fight for the basic standards that all of us need to contribute to overall stability for families, communities and a growing economy.
Next week marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. That monumental event and the organizing that followed helped reshape our country and the economy. But we aren’t done yet. Call your Senators and Congressional Representative and tell them that, on this 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, we expect them to take action on the Voting Rights Act to protect the voting rights of all Americans.
We of 9to5 ask you to stand tall today and tell Congress that NOW is the “Time for a Raise to $10.50/hour!” Now. Not next month, not next year, NOW.
What we ask here is so little but so RIGHT: just an adequate raise to $10.50 that allows every worker in America to sustain a dignified life with hope for a better future for our grandchildren.
