Supporting Workers and Immigrants

With Mujeres Unidas y Activas

After passing the first local law in the country to establish the right to fair scheduling for workers while on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, David has been leading the fight in Sacramento for the Fair Scheduling Act, which would require employers to provide hourly food and retail workers with two-week scheduling notice and pay for last-minute scheduling changes (AB 357). 

To bridge language access gaps for limited-English proficient Californians who are injured on the job, David successfully led the passage of a law that requires the Division of Workers’ Compensation in the Department of Industrial Relations to translate key materials into multiple languages and provide real language access to all of California’s workers (AB 438).

As the first son born to his immigrant parents, David teamed up with Latino Caucus Chair Assemblymember Luis Alejo to establish the One California program, which is providing $15 million to support organizations working within California’s diverse communities that are assisting and educating immigrants in the naturalization process to become citizens.
