  • Farmworker overtime bill moves to governor's desk

    The California legislature's approval of a bill to phase in state overtime rules for farmworkers awaits Gov. Jerry Brown's signature. Agricultural workers already receive some overtime pay under California law thanks to a 2002 state directive that entitles them to extra wages if they work more than 10 hours in a day or more than 60 hours in a week. AB 1066 would expand that to bring it more in line with other industries, offering time-and-a-half pay for working more than eight hours in a day or 40 in a week and double pay for working more than 12 hours a day.
