Farm Progress America, September 19, 2022

Max Armstrong looks at a new California restaurant wage law that could have a far-reaching impact.

Max Armstrong shares that the Fast Recovery Act in California is causing trouble in the state, but is more far reaching than many think. Max offers insight on the new bill from Riley Lagesen, an attorney with Greenberg Taurig. Lagesen, who told Nation’s Restaurant News that this concept is likely to catch on in other states including New York, Illinois, and elsewhere. The act is designed to give fast food employees a seat at the table for wage discussions. Max reports on what it might mean for the future.

Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
