Tell Congress: Don't waste time putting lipstick on pigs!

lipstickonapigSome members of Congress are introducing a bill called the Working Families Flexibility Act" a "comp time" bill which certainly sounds good, but in reality is anything but. If passed this bill would mean a pay cut for workers and less – not more – workplace flexibility. It would weaken a 75-year-old overtime law and permit employers to demand more hours from their employees without any guarantee that the comp time employees earn would be available when they need it most.

Tell Congress: If you really want to help working families, stop wasting time putting lipstick on pigs and pass the Healthy Families Act.

Dear Members of Congress,

In these tough economic times, rather than attempting to gut the Fair Labor Standards Act and weaken overtime protections, we need Congress to focus on passing meaningful reforms like the Healthy Families Act (H.R. 1286/S. 631). Passing the Healthy Families Act would provides workers the right to earn up to seven paid sick days each year so that mothers and fathers, spouses and partners, sons and daughters can take the time they need, when they need it, to provide the basic care their loved ones need, and to take care of themselves when illness strikes or medical needs arise.

The "Working Families Flexibility Act" is a great name for a bad bill. Please vote against this bill and focus on policies like the Healthy Families Act, which will actually strengthen our nation.
