Voice of OC – Could Grocery Workers in Irvine Get Hero Pay?
This Tuesday our City Council will consider adopting an ordinance establishing premium pay for grocery workers (Agenda Item 5.4). According to Noah Biesiada from his Voice of OC article Could Grocery Workers in Irvine Get Hero Pay?:
“If approved, all grocery outlets in the city with over 85,000 square feet would be required to give workers a $4 an hour pay increase for the next 120 days. The ordinance also says stores cannot cut down hours or otherwise harm workers to make up the difference.
Mayor Farrah Khan proposed the item in a supplemental agenda released this week. As mayor, Khan is the only council member capable of adding an item to the agenda on her own.”
