How fair schedules help Connecticut workers


 

For better or worse, jobs define who we are and how we see ourselves. We identify ourselves and others as a real estate agent, or a lawyer, or a letter carrier, a plumber, or a janitor. We take pride in our jobs; they are a source of respect. We build our lives around our jobs; they are the foundation of our well-being, on how to pay our bills.

Not all jobs are created equal, however. For far too many workers, their jobs, far from being a steady foundation, are instead a source of uncertainty.
