9to5 is committed to:

1) Winning family-friendly policies to help working people balance responsibilities at home and on the job.

2) Making nonstandard jobs voluntary and equitable so that those who work part-time or as temps receive fair pay and benefits.

3) Eliminating workplace discrimination through educating about legal rights on the job, monitoring enforcement agencies, and expanding anti-discrimination laws.

4) Opposing punitive welfare policies and backing those that allow women to be self sufficient while supporting their families.

9to5’s Work Family Campaign

Our priority campaign is to win family-friendly policies for low-wage women. In the coming year we’ll focus on expanding family and medical leave benefits, including minimum requirements for paid sick leave, and increasing access to childcare and other family-flexible policies through TANF and other block grants. We’ll do this by working to change national and state legislation as well as workplace policy.
