A lot at stake with days to go in legislative session
August 22, 2022
The State Legislature has just days to make a final decision on hundreds of bills. There are many that the CRA is working for – and many we are working against. That includes AB 257, the bill that directly targets counter-service restaurants by allowing an unelected “sector council” – rather than elected representatives – to make workplace rules for these establishments. The bill’s proponents claim that this segment of the restaurant community has higher rates of workplace violations. However, the state’s own enforcement data says otherwise.
