McDonald's USA President Joe Erlinger slammed California's fast-food workers bill in a post Wednesday.
Assembly Bill 257, also known as the Fast Food Accountability and Standards Recovery Act, creates a Fast Food Sector Council consisting of union representatives, workers, employers and two state officials that will set wage rates, working hours and other standards for fast-food workers.
Any minimum wage rate set by the council cannot exceed $22 per hour in 2023, and cost-of-living increases are scheduled for years beyond 2023.
Proponents of the bill have argued it will address unsafe conditions, wage theft and other issues, while opponents say it could increase costs and harm the fast-food sector.
