Entrepreneurs’ Roundtable with Councilwoman Helen Gym

Event Navigation

The Entrepreneurs’ Roundtable is an intentionally intimate monthly members-only issue-based breakfast conversation created to connect local independent businesses, elected officials and other key decision makers in the city, region, and state


For June’s Entrepreneurs’ Roundtable, SBN welcomes Councilmember At-Large Helen Gym to discuss the impact fair scheduling practices could have to protect working families.

Although fair scheduling legislation would not apply to small and medium-sized businesses, policymakers like Gym recognize that SBN members are leaders when it comes to fostering employee well-being and want to hear from us to gather solutions, best practices, and experience-based knowledge. We invite all SBN model employers (not limited to just food industry and retail).

In Philadelphia, over 100,000 low-wage retail and fast food workers are subjected to unstable hours, on-call scheduling, and little advance notice of their work schedules. These practices cause significant insecurity for working families by making it difficult to budget or predict income, to allocate time for family or personal responsibilities, and to care for children.

Fair scheduling policy would apply to large retail and food service companies like J. Crew, Target, Starbucks and Whole Foods
