As of April 2018, only 14 per cent of the US workforce had access to a work boot cut.
According to a recent study by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, more than 70 per cent have no access to the cut, which is used to make alterations in a job.
But many jobs still use the cut.
And the cuts are often expensive, and it’s often difficult to find work when the job is eliminated.
According the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the cost of a work cut is estimated at $15,000 per person.
This year alone, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health estimated that 1.1 million Americans were injured during work cuts, which caused over 2,500 deaths.
In addition, an estimated 5.2 million workers lost their jobs as a result of work cuts.
Now, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is taking the fight for an affordable work bootcut to the White House.
“We are challenging the federal government to include a minimum wage increase as part of its comprehensive plan to address the economic and social ills caused by the high cost of health care, healthcare costs, unemployment, poverty, and inequality,” said Rachel Aviv, director of the ACLU’s Immigrant & Pacific Islander Rights Project.
“The U.s. should not have to choose between paying the bills for workers and ensuring that their children can earn a decent wage.
We call on the Trump administration to ensure workers have the right to choose their health care and other benefits.”
