CalSavers is a new California law designed to encourage employees to save for retirement. CalSavers was originally called California Secure Choice and was approved by the State Legislature in 2016. In California, beginning July 1, 2019, the CalSavers Retirement Savings Program will open to all eligible employers. CalSavers provides employees with a retirement savings program without burdening employers with administrative complexity, fees, or fiduciary liability of existing options.

Yesterday morning, Western Growers President & CEO Tom Nassif detailed the critical labor shortages facing American agriculture and laid out the case for agricultural immigration reform before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship.

In his testimony, Nassif stated that experienced workers are aging out of the agricultural workforce with few Americans lining up to take their place, despite wages well above state and federal minimums.
