From California Farm Bureau AB 1313 (Michael Allen, D-Santa Rosa) is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Appropriations Committee on August 6. Farm Team members have been helpful on this issue in the past, and we need your help again today.
AB 1313 takes away agriculture’s traditional 10-hour workday.
- Requires agricultural employers to pay overtime after 8 hours in a workday or 40 hours in a workweek.
- The Legislature is ignoring the reality that California is one of the few states that imposes any overtime requirement at all on agriculture. Farmers can’t control nature, the weather or market conditions, and policymakers recognized this reality when they created the 10-hour workday for agriculture.
- Please contact members of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
