Calif. Gov. Signs Bill Holding Retailers Jointly Liable for Trucker Abuse
Posted On: Sep 25, 2018
September 25, 2018 | POLITICAL ACTION | The governor of California on Saturday signed into law a bill holding retail companies jointly responsible for labor violations at their port trucking providers, marking a drastic shift in the relationship between the nation’s most powerful brands and those who deliver their goods in the Los Angeles harbor. Set to take effect in January 2019, Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara’s bill is the first of its kind that tries to spread financial liability up the supply chain. The trucking legislation follows the USA TODAY investigative series “Rigged,” which published last year. The series chronicled rampant labor abuse at dozens of trucking companies operating out of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the country's two largest ports, and showed how major retail brands such as Target and Costco enable the unjust system.
