Lawmakers should place limits on on-call staffing practices

The legislature is currently debating bills that would limit on-call scheduling, (S.B. 764 and H.B. 6924) letting employees like me have the chance to know when they will have to go to work. Instead of scrambling day to day with class schedules, care for loved ones, or different responsibilities, we will be able to plan ahead, instead of living from shift to shift. It is time for the state to put limits on these practices.
