The California fast food workers are scheduled to succeed in achieving historic rights.
Over the protest of resturant owners, California Legislators adoptd a plan to give more than half a million fast-food employees additional authority and rights.
The bill established a 10- member Fast Food Council comprising workers' delegates, employers' representatives, and two state official to set minimum wage hours, and working condition in California.
A late addition would stop minimum wage hikes for fast-food employees at chains with more than 100 locations at $22 an hour next year, with cost of living increases thereafter.
Mary kay Henry, president of SEIU remarked, "Today was historic." This law is a big step forward for Californians and USA.
Worker told they believed the law would help tackle low pay , bad working conditions and a lack of safety safeguards.
Many laws protect employees, yet nobody enforces them. We're necessary but mistreated. With the Fast Recovery Act, we'll be heard, Stated Subway worker Maria Yolanda Torres
A survey by UCLA Found Roughly 40% of the employees the department surveyed reported not having enough money to buy groceries during the pandemic,
and almost as many said they were carrying out multiple jobs to make ends meet.
It's innovative, it's bringing together industry and workers at the business table, said the Democratic senator Maria Elena Durazo, who carried the bill in the Senate.
