Voters Will Decide If CA Fast Food Council Has Any Teeth

We have a measure on the ballot in California for the November 5th 2024 election.


Kurt Oneto of Sacramento started a drive to gather 623-thousand signatures and he was successful.


Now voters will get to decide if California’s Fast Food Council will stand.  It was created in 2022 by the California Legislature, and signed by Governor Gavin Newsom.


The Council will set standards for working standards and a minimum wage of up to 22 dollars per hour for workers at national chain fast food restaurants that have at least 1-hundred locations nationwide.


If voters approve the measure, the Fast Food Council will remain in place. If voters reject the measure, it’s adios to the council.


The Fast Food Council is made up of ten members appointed by Governor Newsom, the Speaker of the California Assembly, and the California Senate Rules Committee.
