Wage Theft Days of Action: Stand with the 99 Percent and take action Nov. 17-20
On Nov. 17-20, people of faith are calling for Just Jobs - jobs with pay and benefits that support a family, with employers that don't steal wages - jobs with dignity. There are three simple ways you can get involved right now:
Hold a Just Jobs Sabbath at your congregation.
Pitch a Solidarity Tent on the front lawn of your congregation in support of the economic and moral issues raised by Occupy Wall Street.
Join a Just Jobs action against wage theft sponsored by a Workers'Center near you.
Three years ago, when the first annual National Day of Action to stop wage theft was held, no one was even talking about this issue. But in the past 18 months alone, we've seen tough anti-wage theft legislation passed in New York, Seattle, Texas, San Francisco and other cities across the country.
Our voices matter. Our actions make a difference.
