Democratic legislators in California are looking to pass a bill which would create state-run fast food councils to slap new labor regulations on fast food chains that could raise the inflated prices of food across the state.
Assembly Bill 257 will establish a state-run panel that would set wages, hours and working conditions standards for California’s entire fast food industry; such measures would be enforced by the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, according to the bill’s text. However, the bill’s regulations may force consumers to pay up to 20% more for fast-f0od, according to an analysis of the bill released Wednesday conducted by the UC Riverside Business Center for Economic Forecasting and Development and funded by the International Franchise Association.
