Bill gives fast-food workers more protections
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – Governor Newsom has signed landmark legislation to empower fast-food workers with new wage and workplace protections to support their health, safety and welfare.

AB 257 authorizes the creation of the Fast Food Council comprised of representatives from labor and management to set minimum standards for workers in the industry. That includes wages, conditions related to health and safety, security in the workplace, the right to take time off from work for protected purposes and protection from discrimination and harassment.

Newsom proclaimed that the bill “gives hardworking fast-food workers a stronger voice and seat at the table to set fair wages and critical health and safety standards across the industry.”
