CAWA and its Coalition Oppose AB 701

Share This:


CAWA remains opposed to California Assembly Bill 701, introduced by Assembly Member Lorena Gonzalez, related to warehouse distribution centers, as amended Sept. 3.

California is home to thousands of warehouse distribution centers, many of which are located in regions where good jobs can be difficult to come by. Distribution centers provide quality jobs to hundreds of thousands of working-class Californians.


Today, this sector is booming: according to U.S. Department of Labor data, wages in the transportation and warehousing sector have risen more than 17% in the past year.


See the letter expressing why CAWA and many other business groups are opposed to AB 701 here.


Unfortunately, as of this date, the bill passed the legislature and is now on the governor’s desk for his signing. Stay tuned.
