  • 1 in 6 Oregon workers had less than 24 hour notice of their shifts.
  • 44% of respondents have worked back to back shifts, such as closing one day and opening the next day.
  • 73% (499) are expected to have open availability to work to obtain more hours or a better schedule.
  • 73% percent of our respondents were notified of their work schedule fourteen or fewer days in advance.
  • Nearly three-quarters of respondents’ work schedules were subject to change after they were posted.

 “I can’t plan my life with only a day’s notice. Rent and food costs are the same each month.

Without regular scheduling practices, I don’t know how much I’ll make each week. A regular schedule will help me better balance my job and taking care of my family.”
