Thanks in part to the fight for a shorter workday that was at the center of labor struggles a century ago, the standard for “full time” is the 40-hour work week. But for a large number of working men and women who have part-time jobs or face erratic scheduling, a stable, full-time schedule is out of reach. Across the country, working people are organizing to change insufficient hours and unpredictable scheduling. This panel will examine how fights for scheduling and hours policies and legislation can change industry standards and the lives of working men and women.
