Urgent: Support the Farmworker's Fair Labor Practices Act

State Senator Pedro Espada is working to revive the Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act in the next 24 hours. He is working on the version of the bill that was revised in January - guaranteeing a day of rest every seven, if desired, the right to collective bargaining, and the right to overtime pay after 60 hours.

If you would like to see this bill passage, you should call these Senators immediately! It is a list of Senators who have supported the bill in the past but may not in the final hours.
