Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Signing of Farm Worker Overtime Law

Governor Brown’s signing of AB1066 rights a historic wrong that for 77 years denied overtime pay to farm workers laboring more than eight hours a day in the toughest conditions imaginable.

Every step Democrats take to raise the standard of living for California workers makes our communities and economy stronger. The United Farm Workers who championed AB1066 and legislative leaders who stuck by their guns to pass the bill deserve our thanks.
