DCF 1.0Employees’ Rights Attorney Norman B. Blumenthal, of the labor law firm of Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik, is urging all California workers not to be “felony stupid” when choosing their elected officials.   “Working stiffs who vote for candidates who do not pledge to support employee rights to a 40 hour work week are “felony stupid,” said Norman Blumenthal, the managing partner of the Employment Law firm Blumenthal, Nordrehaug & Bhowmik.  “Elections have consequences.  State laws have consequences."

According to Blumenthal, a working stiff should not vote for any candidate who does not sign a pledge to keep the 40 hour work week sacrosanct, narrow all exemptions to the 40 hour work week, and void all arbitration agreements covering employment.

The state of California continues to show one of the largest increases in employment of any state because it has labor friendly family laws, and a state private attorney general act which deputizes California attorneys to prosecute employers on behalf of the state who violate California employment laws.  Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the California labor laws, workers who work more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours in a work week are entitled to overtime pay.  Hours worked include work performed during a lunch hour, or work required to do a work related task, such as a bag check, before they clock in or after they clock out of work.

“If elected officials passed laws consistent with this pledge, 2 million jobs would be created in the U.S. overnight at no cost,” concluded Employees’ Rights Attorney Norman B. Blumenthal.
