We are in the California State Capitol in support of CA Senate Bill 1402, which will hold companies like Home Depot and Amazon accountable for the immoral exploitation of truck drivers like us that haul cargo on and off the docks at America’s largest port complex.
This important legislation, called “Dignity in the Driver’s Seat,” was introduced by CA Senator Ricardo Lara and orders the State of California to publish a list of trucking companies that rip off us drivers by illegally misclassifying us as independent contractors without concern for the law. If the cargo owners – importers like Amazon, Walmart, and Home Depot – contract with a company on the list, then they will be held liable for our wage theft claims.
We are going to testify in the CA Senate Judiciary and Labor Committees, and will report how many people like you have signed our support petition.
