A survey of 572 D.C. voters conducted by Public Policy Polling on Oct. 28-30, 2015 found overwhelming support for giving working people more stable and predictable work schedules at retail and food service employers.
The survey, sponsored by DC Jobs With Justice and DC Fiscal Policy Institute, found that 86% of surveyed voters support new rules to stablize work schedules. Support only increased when voters were asked about the specific provisions of the Just Hours policy. Eighty-seven percent supported requiring employers in chain retail and food service to post schedules two weeks’ in advance. Eighty-eight percent supported requiring employers to offer available hours to current employees before hiring new workers.
