A Push to Give Steadier Shifts to Part-Timers

There is a movement to require predictability in the shift scheduling of part time workers. “The actions reflect a growing national movement — fueled by women’s and labor groups — to curb practices that affect millions of families, like assigning just one or two days of work a week or requiring employees to work unpredictable hours that wreak havoc with everyday routines like college and child care.”

Predictability, with some flexibility, in work schedules, would benefit all part-time workers, but especially women, who are most responsible for child-care. The benefits to workers will also help employers retain responsible workers.
