The next step for the Health and Safety for All Workers Act that would end discriminatory workplace safety exclusions, is a Senate floor vote next month |
Yesterday, 260 nannies, housecleaners, homecare workers, household employers and supporters came from across the state to demand safe workplaces for all California employees. Author of the bill, Senator Maria Elena Durazo, and Principal Co-Author, Assemblymember Wendy Carrillo addressed the crowd in front of the legislative offices. Through a march, rally and creative actions inside the legislative building, workers and their allies introduced California leaders to the workers they must act to protect. Today, the Senate Appropriations Committee passed the bill, 5-2, with a floor vote anticipated within the next few weeks.
