Fair Scheduling on the Coasts: A Look at Research and Campaigns in NYC and LA


January 31, 2017

10 am PT/1 pm ET

The Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) invites you to a webinar exploring fair scheduling advocacy and research in New York City and Los Angeles.

Across the country – up and down the coasts and everywhere in between – low-wage workers are struggling with volatile scheduling practices. A new report from the Community Service Society finds that low-income workers in New York City are disproportionately affected by unpredictable schedules, with many struggling to keep they their jobs, pay their bills, and move ahead economically as a result. And new research from the UCLA Labor Center and CLASP shows that most young service sector workers in Los Angeles County receive little advance notice or input into their schedules. Moreover, many are barely getting by due to insufficient hours.

On this webinar, you’ll hear from the researchers behind both reports, as well as learn how advocates are tackling unfair scheduling practices in both cities.

Speakers will include:

  • Harold StolperSenior Labor Economist, Community Service Society (CSS)
  • Brad LanderNew York City Council Member
  • Saba WaheedResearch Director, UCLA Labor Center
  • Aiha NguyenDirector, Shop Well LA Project, Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE)
  • Elianne FarhatDeputy Campaign Director, Center for Popular Democracy (CPD)

We hope you will join us on January 31st at 10 am PT/1 pm ET to learn more about what’s happening with fair scheduling on the coasts.
