California Court Freezes Controversial Fast Food Minimum Wage Law

  • A poll of labor economists by the Employment Policies Institute, a fiscally conservative think tank, found that 83% oppose the FAST Recovery Act; another survey from the International Franchise Association revealed that a mere 32% of Californians support the law.
  • “All signs are telling legislators to reject this bill,” International Franchise Association CEO Matt Haller said in a statement.
  • “Voters don’t want it, consumers don’t want higher prices, and franchisees don’t want corporations being forced to take over their businesses.”
