Working Lunch: What the restaurant industry will face in the 2020 legislative session

Also, why businesses are losing workers to the gig economy

The 2020 legislative sessions are starting soon, so the team at Align Public Strategies are looking at what the restaurant industry will be facing and where.

The Retail Industry Leaders Association released a new study looking at why traditional brick-and-mortar businesses — including restaurants — are losing workers to the gig economy. The Working Lunch team is joined by the association’s Evan Armstrong to talk about the survey and what the restaurant industry can learn.

Plus, McDonald’s settled a lawsuit in California over pay discrepancies involving meal and rest breaks. The podcast takes a closer look at this story and wraps up with the legislative scorecard.
