The state of California will launch a massive new retirement program that could cover nearly 7 million private-sector workers, under legislation singed by Governor Jerry Brown yesterday (Thursday). Capital Public Radio's Ben Bradford reports.
California farm workers could soon be eligible for overtime the way most laborers are: if they work more than 8 hours in a day or more than 40 hours in a week. That's a change recently passed by the California Legislature and awaiting action from Governor Jerry Brown. But as Capital Public Radio's Julia Mitric reports, the move might not add up to bigger paychecks.
