Californians put fast-food law on 2024 ballot
A California law aimed at raising wages and improving working conditions for fast-food workers will be put in voters' hands.
The initiative could overturn a first-in-the-nation law passed last year.
The law affects more than a half-million fast food workers.
The referendum raised more than 623,000 valid voter signatures to be placed on the Nov. 5, 2024, election ballot, Secretary of State Shirley N. Weber announced.
The law establishes a 10-member council empowered to set minimum wages and standards for hours and working conditions for California’s fast food workers.
