Helping Working Families
This week, I carried SB 828, the fair scheduling bill, to the House floor, where it passed with bipartisan support. Unpredictable work schedules impose significant burdens on many individuals and families, including last-minute child care needs, transportation costs, and unpredictability in rest days and income. SB 828 increases work schedule certainty and income stability for employees in the retail, hospitality, and food service industries by establishing standards for large employers, and protecting rights for employees. It is the product of lots of hard work and compromise between labor and business groups, and it will be the first law of its kind in the country! I was proud to be a chief sponsor of this bill, and am excited to see it head to Governor Brown for her signature.
Standing strong with the legislators and advocates who helped craft and pass SB 828 this week.
