CalChamber targets minimum wage increase, employee scheduling bills as ‘job killers’

“The California Chamber of Commerce released its annual list of “job killer” legislation this week, highlighting bills that the powerful business lobby argues will have a negative economic impact for the state.

Among the high-profile proposals CalChamber is targeting are SB 350 (Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles), a push to increase California’s use of renewable energy to 50 percent by 2030 that is backed by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer; AB 357 (Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco), requiring retail and food service businesses to provide employees at least two weeks’ notice of their schedules; and SB 3 (Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco), another effort to raise the minimum wage.” (Sac Bee, April 10, 2015)
