Petition to Forever 21
Expand shoe size for women: Size 11
As a lover of fashion and Forever 21 clothing and accessories, I would like to be able to purchase their shoes also. Currently Forever 21 only makes women's shoes up to a size 10. Increasing the size range to 11 would benefit not only me but hundreds of thousands of women worldwide who like me want to enjoy the latest fashion trends that Forever 21 offers. Please join me in advocating for women across the world with a larger shoe size to enjoy any kind of shoe Forever 21 manufactures. Thank you and I look forward to seeing this change executed !

Tell JCPenney to close for Thanksgiving
Just about the most important thing to most people is their family. My wife and I have been married for over 30 years and we treasure having our children and grandchildren share the traditional Thanksgiving day with us. Having both worked in retail for many years it is the last family day before the hectic Holiday shopping season. Now my wife's employer of over 30 years, JCPenney, is taking this important day away from us. Last year and now again this year the executives of JCPenney have decided that being open on Thanksgiving day is more important than the family lives of their thousands of employees. I urge the CEO and Board of Directors of JCPenney to be the Family Oriented store that they once were and to put the well being of their employees above the few extra dollars they might make by being open on Thanksgiving day. Chances are that by being a better family company they will make more profit for the Holidays.
Petition to Pizza Hut
Give Tony Rohr his job back!
Pizza Hut forced a GM to quit because he refused to give his employees a day off on Thanksgiving. One of two days (the other being Christmas) that they were gaurenteed off to spend time with friends and family. I am sure Corporate empoyess have the day off! Here is link to story from my home town Elkhart, Indiana http://www.wsbt.com/news/local/man-says-he-was-fired-for-refusing-to-work-thanksgiving/-/21046398/23117832/-/xko9vwz/-/index.html
Petition to Victoria's Secret, Ed Razek, Monica Mitro, Lori Greeley, Sharon Jester Turney
Victoria's Secret: Don’t keep workers' schedules a secret!
Hi. We’re Debbra and Phillesia, and we’ve been part-time workers at Victoria’s Secret’s Flagship store in New York City for several years. The majority of our store’s approximately 700 workers struggle because we’re classified as part-time – only managers are considered full-time. Our hours fluctuate wildly, so we never know how much our paychecks will be, and since we don’t have guaranteed minimum hours, our hours are slashed without notice – leaving us unable to pay our rent, succeed at school, get promotions, or take care of our families. Some of us are fortunate enough to work over 30 hours per week, but because we’re misclassified as part-time we don’t get the benefits and raises that are granted to full-time employees. We are parents, students, and hard workers who deserve to know how many hours we work. Phillesia has been a cashier for four years, and is one of many hard-working students at Victoria’s Secret. Debbra has been a support stock associate for close to three years, and struggles to pay her student loans on unstable paychecks. Over 100 of our coworkers have joined the Retail Action Project’s Just Hours Campaign to address these unpredictable and unfair scheduling practices. Last week, we delivered a letter to our District Manager, asking them to meet with our committee for Just Hours. So far they have refused. Victoria’s Secret claims they have an open door policy. Instead, they responded to our efforts by cutting our hours, intimidating us, increasing surveillance, and harassing us. Management is individually targeting workers who they suspect are fighting for equal opportunity, fair wages, and respect. Instead of the opportunity to have stable jobs with benefits, we’re being denied access to jobs with enough predictable hours. We can’t afford to have our hours slashed. Part-time should be a choice, instead of a dead end. That’s why we need your help. Victoria’s Secret is a prominent women’s retailer that should do the right thing and respect their employees’ right to earn a living. Sign our petition asking Victoria’s Secret to guarantee a minimum of 30 hours per week with benefits for the majority of our store’s employees!
