Don’t Expect Pico-Robertson Business To Rush Out To Get New ‘Ethics’ Certification

Kosher businesses in Pico-Robertson already have four regular inspectors they have to deal with. I doubt any of them are rushing to sign up for this new program by the community’s Modern Orthodox rabbis.

The minimum wage already puts entry level jobs at a steep price to employers. Eight dollars an hour for a dishwasher? Many of these employees can’t survive on just 40 hours a week. That’s only $320 a week before taxes. They need to work 80 hours a week. But employers can’t afford to pay them overtime rates.

Numerous employers in Pico-Robertson have been fined by the state for not properly paying overtime. Lawyers will show an employer how best to get around these laws legally.
