LA WATCHDOG - The Service Employees International Union ('SEIU') and the political establishment are bent out of shape because the fast-food industry has gathered enough signatures to place the Fast Food Accountability and Standards Recovery Act ('FAST Recovery Act') on the November 2024 ballot. By qualifying this referendum for the ballot, the law, which was scheduled to go into effect on January 1, is on hold pending its approval or rejection by the voters of California in 2024.   While the Los Angeles Times considers this referendum an abuse of the system and an effort to throw out progressive California laws, our paper of record fails to acknowledge that this law was muscled through Sacramento by the campaign financing union bosses.
