California Law Causes a Stir
The FAST Recovery Act (Assembly Bill 257) could have an impact on fast-food chain restaurants and their employees in California if the law takes effect Jan. 1, 2023.
The law is intended to empower workers through the creation of a Council that would have the authority to establish minimum standards on wages, working hours, and working conditions.
Opponents, including the International Franchise Association which has taken steps to block its implementation, express that it could increase labor costs and food prices, while leading to business closures and a loss of jobs.
