SIGN THE PLEDGE: I'm fasting for farm workers!
NOTE: FASTING CAN BE DANGEROUS. THOSE WITH HEALTH ISSUES OR CONCERNS THAT MAY BE AFFECTED BY FASTING SHOULD NOT PARTICIPATE. ANYONE UNSURE OR WITH QUESTIONS SHOULD CONSULT THEIR DOCTOR BEFORE PARTICIPATING.
Farm workers are vital to our well-being as a nation. But for nearly 100 years, they’ve been treated like second-class citizens and denied real overtime.
But right now, we have an opportunity to right this wrong with Assembly Bill 1066 by Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez.
AB 1066 is a commonsense solution that will give farm workers overtime pay after eight hours. But powerful corporate lobbyists are trying to tear it down. That is why on Tuesday, August 16, legislators, faith-based leaders, and activists across the country are going to fast for 24 hours in support of farm workers and help pass AB 1066.
SIGN THE PLEDGE and send an immediate message to your California Assemblymember saying:
“I am pledging to fast for 24 hours in support of farm workers’ pay. As your constituent, can I count on you to support farm workers and vote YES on AB 1066 (Gonzalez) for fair overtime pay for farm workers? Our hard-working farm workers deserve the same overtime protections that other hourly workers enjoy.”
