Night shift workers speak out against sexual assault
The San Francisco Chronicle writes about AB 1978, a California bill, signed by Governor Brown, that addresses the prevalence of sexual violence in the janitorial industry:
AB 1978 would create a public registry of janitorial services by 2018, an approach modeled on that of farm labor contractors. Supporters believe the registry would help authorities monitor janitorial employers to reduce sexual harassment and other abuses, such as wage theft.
“In order to even know what is going on there, we have to know who they are,” said Jennifer Reisch, legal director at Equal Rights Advocates, a co-sponsor of the bill along with SEIU’s California State Council.
