Summary: Corporations have vastly more resources than individual workers, and often leverage those resources during a strike to “starve out” a workforce — negotiating slowly as workers worry their bank accounts will run dry. AB1066 grants workers an opportunity to collect unemployment benefits for the first three weeks of a strike, lending essential support to the bargaining power of labor. This bill failed by 2 votes in the Senate.
