Why PAGA Still Matters

Date: 
“PAGA is a frequent target of criticism, but now we are seeing the most credible threat yet. Every year, at least a half dozen. bills are brought that seek to gut or lessen the impact of PAGA. In recent years, employers have been using the California proposition system to gut laws aimed at curbing wage theft. For example, famously, Prop 22 took away workplace protections for app-based drivers. In 2018, voters agreed to strip away the rights of ambulance drivers to take breaks. In 2024, voters will decide the fate of PAGA. We need to work together to protect and maximize the effectiveness of PAGA in combating wage theft.” Read more about PAGA in Attorney Jennifer Kramer’s most recent article.
