The SWEAT bill is on the floor of both the Assembly and the Senate but it needs your help to become law so workers can stop getting cheated of their hard-earned wages.
1. Call your Senator, Assemblymember and Albany leaders. Let them know you support the SWEAT bill, A486/S2844 because employers who cheat their workers should be held accountable. Urge them to support the bill and bring it to vote.
Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie – (518) 455-3791 Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins – (518) 455-2585
2. Show your support on social media! Here are some sample tweets or posts-

Wage theft hurts workers, families who rely on them, law-abiding businesses and the state’s bottom line. We need A486/S2844 #passthesweatbill #stopwagetheft @CarlHeastie @AndreaSCousins
Law-abiding businesses support A486/S2844 because they can’t compete against unscrupulous employers who depend on exploiting workers to do business. #passtheSWEATbill for workers, law-abiding businesses, taxpayers, & NYS @CarlHeastie @AndreaSCousins
