Protect your right to a lunch break! Governor Schwarzenegger wants to take away your lunch break. Regulatory changes announced by the Governor will weaken workers’ rights to breaks and meal periods. These changes benefit corporations that are cheating their workers out of breaks. Companies that refuse to provide breaks and are being taken to court for it - like Wal Mart - could be off the hook if the Governor’s changes go into effect.

Public Forum on Lunch Break Regulations:
State Building, Rm 1036
2550 Mariposa Mall, Fresno

What you can do to stop the lunch break rule changes:

* Testify at the hearing
* Help pack the room to show your opposition
* If you can’t come, send in written comments. If you can’t make it to the forum, you can submit written comments to the DLSD. Comments must be submitted in writing (by mail, fax, or email) and received by 5 PM on March 2, 2005. Send comments to: Allen Perlof, Senior Deputy Labor Commissioner, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, 9th floor West. P.O. Box 420603, San Francisco, Ca 94142. Email: dlsecomments@dir.ca.gov . Fax (415) 703-4807

For more information on the lunch break rule changes contact Don Hightower at the California Labor Federation (510) 663-4063 or visit http://www.calaborfed.org
