California Assembly Adjourns for the Week with No Action on AB 1066

The California Assembly adjourned this week taking no action on the ag overtime bill, AB 1066. The body will reconvene on Monday. Opponents of this legislation have been persistently lobbying legislators and will continue their efforts through the weekend.

It is imperative for Western Growers members to reach out to your assembly member and urge a NO vote! Explain to your representative how the bill will impact your operations and farmworkers. According to a recent economic analysis, farmworkers will lose an average of $4,500 in income per year as a result of AB 1066.
