How Will Passage of Save America’s Pastime Act Impact California Lawsuit?
A California unpaid wages lawsuit, that traces its origins to the Golden State in 2014 and held national implications after it was granted class action status appears all but dead after the US Congress included a statute in its omnibus spending bill signed into law last week.

The Feds Sue California over State Immigration Laws
The Feds Sue California over State Immigration Laws
It is a well-known fact that the State of California is, and has remained progressive with regard to standing up for the rights of it undocumented workers. And with good reason: immigrants, including those who don’t necessarily have their papers account for 10 percent of the State’s workforce. Removing the undocumented worker from the equation would have a dramatic and negative impact on the California economy. The State’s defense of the undocumented worker, however, puts California in the crosshairs of the US Department of Justice (DOJ), which is now suing the State of California over its immigration policies.
