Schwarzenegger Vetoes Farmworker Overtime Bill
Comments (0)SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has vetoed a bill to give California farmworkers overtime pay after working 40 hours in a week. The bill he vetoed Wednesday would have changed a 1941 law that said farmworkers get overtime after working 10 hours in a day or a 60-hour week. It would have given them time-and-a-half after an eight-hour day or 40-hour week. Schwarzenegger said farm labor is different because it is seasonal, depends on the weather and requires harvesting perishable crops. He says increasing overtime would make California less competitive with other states.
Democratic state Sen. Dean Florez of Shafter, who authored SB1121, says the Republican governor missed a chance to reverse a "shameful" practice that treats farmworkers as a lower class. This targets ALL and in parts of Cali-harvesting is year round--not seasonal as he claims. Clueless.
But on the upside he's got a movie with HOTTIE Jason Statham coming out! The Expendables! with Bruce Willis and Sly Stallone
