Let’s keep our name and cause in the public eye! The best way to do this is to submit a letter to the editor in the Gainesville Sun.
We need our members and supporters to help remind our elected representatives in the Alachua County Commission and our community that this is a real problem that needs a timely solution. Please consider taking a few minutes to submit 150 words of support!
No idea what to write? Here are some good places to start:
- If you’ve been a victim of wage theft: Write about your personal experience with the issue and how a Wage Recovery Ordinance would have benefited you
- If you are a business owner: Write about the difficulties and cost of running a business and how this cost is exasperated by unfair competition from businesses who aren’t paying their workers what they are owed
- If you’re religiously inclined or a religious leader: Write about the concept of fairness and taking a stand for those who have the least protection under the law.
- If you’re a community member: Write about the need for Alachua County to offer a fair environment for both workers and businesses, and ask your commissioners to support the ordinance.
Thank you for your support!
