On Friday, July 22, the Secretary of State announced that the California Fair Pay and Employer Accountability Act qualified for the 2024 ballot on the random sample count of signatures. More than 700,000 valid signatures were submitted in support of the PAGA reform.

“This necessary reform will protect multigenerational farm businesses while providing a better pathway for workers to address legitimate grievances,” said Dave Puglia, President and CEO of Western Growers.
