Vote No on the Working Families Flexibility Act – Don’t be fooled by the doublespeak name!

The Working Families Flexibility Act strips workers of overtime protections and erodes the 40 hour work week. It replaces overtime guarantees with so-called “comp” time, giving employers more flexibility and workers less. They can be denied access to comp time when they need it, and can’t refuse requests for long days without fear of being fired. Vote no on this power grab.

Script: I’m calling to ask (____) to vote NO on the Working Families Flexibility Act. The name is very deceptive, as the flexibility goes to employers only. Workers that depended on some overtime pay will no longer get it, along with losing control of their schedules.
