I believe that homework violates the 13th Amendment. The 13th Amendment restricts slavery and acts of slavery but homework violates this. Homework violates this because you (as a student) are forced upon your own will to do this homework and if you do not complete it you are punished. This should be considered as child labor and an act of slavery. I’d love to make a change and get this issue resolved!

The county keeps saying how important the Teamster Highway Maintenance workers are, but then turn around and say it would be impossible to negotiate a better settlement with them. We urge the county's representatives to show the Teamsters how valued they are by negotiating with them NOW, before we get more snow, and ending the strike with a fair settlement.
Teamster members in St Louis County maintain the county's roads, bridges, signs, and equipment. Never is that more critical than during a snowy winter. By refusing to compromise, the county has created a situation that puts members of our community on a picket line in the snow and cold, and leaves our roads hazardous. There must be a settlement that can be reached that all sides can live with. We urge the county to find it.
Petition to Corey Johnson, New York City Council, Corey Johnson
No state or city in America guarantees paid personal time for workers, including nearly a million New Yorkers. It pains me to think about all the birthdays, first days of school, graduations and other special moments I’ve missed because I couldn’t afford to lose my job – or even a single paycheck – by taking a day off work.
My name is Yanelia and I’m a mother of five from the Bronx. To make ends meet and put food on the table, I’m employed at a nail salon where I haven’t had a single work day off to rest or spend with my children in 10 years.
Stand with me in urging the New York City Council to pass legislation RIGHT NOW that would guarantee the right to 10 days of Paid Personal Time. New York would be the first city to make this change, inspiring a wave of change across the country.
No job should cause anyone to miss all the important moments that make life special for everyone. And what we really can’t afford is to keep working so hard that life just passes us by.
Nail salon workers, cooks, cleaners, servers, childcare providers, and domestic workers, and all other working New Yorkers and Americans should be treated with dignity and respect.
We deserve a break to take care of ourselves and those we love. We don’t deserve to be treated like batteries that are thrown away and replaced once drained.
SIGN NOW to make a life-changing difference for working families like mine. Tell the New York City Council: Pass Paid Personal Time legislation today!
