Worker on KUOW was saying she didn't know her hours from week to week, so it's hard to plan for rent or any recurring expenses. Does this law have something that addresses her problem?

I mean, yes, it pushes the problem out to two weeks, but that doesn't help much. It's a much bigger bill if it starts trying to freeze schedules multiple months out.
Another problem I've seen, that seems solvable but not by "two weeks", is when an employee books an appointment three months out, like you have to. One month before, employer says they're needed to work that shift.
And I read that any company that has unionized employees will be exempt. So did unions write this law to promote themselves? And is that why all the council members are supporting it? Because the unions support their campaigns?

Please wait...
