Workers’ Rights

Andy fights every day for workers impacted by discrimination and retaliation, unsafe workplaces, and health insurance denials.  All workers deserve equal pay for equal work, paid family leave, and a workplace free of discrimination and harassment.  In the Assembly, Andy will work to step up enforcement of workers’ rights and to close loopholes that are barriers to justice.  Andy led successful negotiations to require paid sick leave and to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour in Berkeley, and will lead efforts to strengthen workplace protections for all Californians.
