05/18 *Over the weekend UFCW Local 135 President Mickey Kasparian was successful in gaining support from the California Democratic Party Labor Caucus and the Women's Caucus of our Assembly Bill 357 - Schedule Fairness.

It’s often hard to juggle work, school, family commitments and just time to yourself. For those who work in hourly jobs – particularly in retail – it becomes even more difficult when bosses can change, add or drop hours at the very last minute.

This can make it almost impossible to schedule personal appointments, childcare, classes or time with friends and family. Worse, uncertain scheduling means uncertain paychecks leaving workers not knowing how much income they can rely on to budget for even the essentials like housing and food.

We believe it is time to Schedule Fairness.*
