The Deed of the week

Work Strong Austin

As Austin continues to grow, too many working people are left without the ability to improve the quality of life for themselves and their families, and, occupation, should have access to earned sick days.

Unfortunately, approximately 223,000 Austin workers – 37 percent of the total workforce – are at risk of losing wages or being fired if they follow doctor’s orders when they or a family member are ill.


More than a motto.
A movement.
