• Bring back raises
    $10 an hour is hardly anything in this economy, especially for part-time employees trying to support their families. Teens working at McDonald's start off around $15.

  • Modern Self Expression
    Times are changing and I believe Publix is far behind in certain terms. Revising the dresscode won't change the satisfaction of your customers, nor should it affect the quality of your business and products, with that in mind I think you should be taking another look at your dress code. Like I said before, in these modern times this type of self expression is VERY important to some people. There's no point anymore in drawing out the past, and conforming people to this poorly out-dated dress code. When someone refuses to change their hair/etc. for Publix you're thinking they must not want to work there badly, but the message you're truly sending is that unless you give up your individuality you cannot work for our company. If someone decides they want to do something different for themselves they should be able to with out fear of losing their jobs.

  • Country Inn workers deserve severance pay
    A vast majority of the staff scrape by living check to check. Their sudden closure of Country Inn has left many workers, most with young children and families, with nothing for the upcoming holiday season. Most, if not all, these workers gave their all for JANCO for years and years only to be tossed aside 12 days before Thanksgiving. A lot, if not all, workers are facing a really difficult time through no fault of their own

  • #ThePriceOfRetail for workers during the holidays
    For an industry that brings in $250 billion dollars in profits in NYS/NYC each year, there is plenty to go around and the successes of the industry should translate to greater flexibility and share of the profits by the workers. With your support, we can bring these issues to our city and state lawmakers and show employers that their consumer base wants them to do the right thing by their workers.

  • Employees deserve severance pay
    It's not right that the rich corporate just shut down businesses without warning and putting so many people without jobs. This is an issue that's been going on for so long and there has to be an end to this. It's before the holidays and people are out of work in a time where right now jobs are hard to find. While the corporate people are sitting comfortable cutting peoples' jobs, the people he cut out of jobs are worrying about how they're going to feed their families, pay their bills, live. Justice is due.

  • Boycott REI: Wages & Hours Matter, We Matter!
    REI’s CEO, Jerry Stritzke, and the Board of Directors are well aware of our hardships, which we have voiced as loud as we can. Collectively, we have faced: homelessness, medical debt, having to rely on food stamps to feed ourselves, even selling our plasma so we can pay the rent, and living off of credit cards. REI’s leadership has known about our struggles for years, and yet they have no plans to make any meaningful investments in their dedicated retail workforce, also known as REI’s Green Vests.  Amazon, Whole Foods, and Target have committed to a $15/hour starting wage and the retail workers of #OptOutside are asking our co-op to do the same. On average we start at a little over $10/hour and in some regions under $10/hour. Help us hold REI accountable to the values it was founded on. BOYCOTT our beloved co-op until our leadership announces a $15/hour store-wide wage increase, more full-time opportunities for regular sales associates, and more hours for every retail worker, so we can all make ends meet. We would like to stress that a living wage increase alone is not sufficient. Payroll cutbacks have plagued our work culture and they would become more drastic. It is essential that our leadership commit to a scheduling policy that offers us more full-time opportunity, which would ensure that a broader number of store employees receive guaranteed health benefits and a retirement plan. It is also imperative that REI commits to giving its green vests more hours overall, because too many of us are scheduled so few hours that we are struggling to survive our jobs. Stand by REI’s extraordinary retail workforce. If thousands of REI members and outdoors lovers sign in support of this petition, it will make a difference. Your voices will be heard! REI will do right by us if this petition amasses thousands of supporters. Help us to continue doing what we love doing best — educating and outfitting you all for a lifetime of outdoor adventure and stewardship. Gift us a campfire story like no other. Wages matter, hours matter, we matter!

  • STOP Retaliation and harassment in Comcast NOW!
    Experiencing high levels of harassment and retaliation after filing any complaint in good faith is unacceptable by any company. After filing multiple complaints with management, I've been faced with retaliation or justification for any injustice done by staff, management and HR Comcast needs to enforce its Anti-Retalition policy, zero workplace violence policy and harassment policies. Employees should feel safe to follow Comcast's Open door policy without the fear of retaliation or the loss of pay.

  • Marriott: live up to your values, expand your paid family leave policy!
    My name is Malissa and I work for Marriott at a hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. My husband and I want to start a family, but we are delaying because the paid family leave that I get from Marriott is not enough for us to care for a new baby and make ends meet. One of Marriott’s core values is “take care of associates and they will take care of the customers,” but my coworkers and I don’t feel like we are taken care of well enough. They only offer two weeks of paid parental leave, plus half-pay of disability leave for childbirth recovery. No one can afford to start a family on that! That's why I started a petition asking Marriott to expand their paid family leave policy. Join me in asking Marriott to expand their paid family leave policy. Marriott became the number one hotel company in the world since they merged with Starwood properties, but it's pathetic that a company can hold such a high rank in the world and only offer two weeks paid parental leave. My husband and I delayed starting a family this year because we could not afford to miss work. Now we are worried we may have to delay starting a family another year for the same reason. I like my job, but I am now considering the possibility of leaving Marriott for a company with a better-paid family leave policy. Join me in asking Marriott to live up to its values and expand their paid family leave policy. Let's show them that employees and customers care so they can improve their paid family leave policy.

  • Free the ponytail
    Men just passed a petition to allow them to grow a beard at Publix, yet girls get told they have to keep theirs up for food safety reasons. Why do guys get the freedom to grow facial hair and yet girls are still stuck in the “old ways”. What ever happened to equal opportunity?

  • YGC - Working from Home
    Enacting the ability for members to work from home for a consistent [up to] two days per week would: -Increase employee work/life balance -Allow for more flexibility for members with health complications that aren't optimal for the office but are manageable at home while working, personal/family issues like parents' conflicting work schedules, etc. -Boost employee morale (because they wouldn't have to spend hours in traffic every day, employee transportation expenses would lessen, employees would save time, money, and stress levels, etc.) -Significant boost in productivity due to lack of stressful commute, immediate accessibility to work via laptop, better concentration for those with a home office, and all of which helps workers perform a full (or more) work day as proven by many studies such as "A 2-Year Stanford Study Shows the Astonishing Productivity Boost of Working From Home" reported by INC. on April 2, 2018 Our fellow Yamaha teams are already exercising this option (i.e. HR, Marine, Watercraft, etc.). Let's get our YGC team to start enjoying the same productivity benefits that working from home has proven for others?
