Working Lunch: Franchisees caught between Trump and California

The administration and the state are at war over independent worker classification

Election time is just around the corner — not 2020 but 2019 — in five states. Align Public Strategies discusses both the local and national implications and how restaurant industry issues are playing into the mix.

Additionally, California and U.S. president Donald Trump’s administration are at war again — this time over independent worker classification. The team talks to attorney Norman Leon of DLA Piper who represents the International Franchise Association on matters like this.

The Align crew also chats with Mark Freedman from the U.S Chamber of Commerce, who shares the latest EEO-1 pay data companies need to submit by September. The episode concludes with the weekly legislative scorecard.
