Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez introduces bill on paid sick leave

first_img KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Posted: March 15, 2019 Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez introduces bill on paid sick leave March 15, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, announced today that she has introduced a bill to guarantee at least five paid sick days each year for the state’s private sector workers.The bill will expand on Gonzalez’s 2014 law that required private sector companies to provide at least three days of paid sick leave per year to employees. According to Gonzalez, nearly 6.9 million state residents gained access to sick leave thanks to the law. Multiple cities around the state, including San Diego, Los Angeles and Santa Monica, have since passed laws to further expand paid sick leave benefits.“We knew when we passed the paid sick leave law that three days wouldn’t be enough but was a great start,” Gonzalez said. “California was a national leader in establishing earned sick leave for every employee in the state. Now, we need to catch up to other cities and states that have recognized the need for, and have passed, more expansive laws for workers.”The new bill would mandate that employers offer at least five days of sick leave to employees by their 200th day on the job. The bill would accommodate recovery times for the flu, according to Gonzalez’s office, which average about five days.A 2010 study by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research found that roughly eight million workers around the country went to work while fighting the flu during the 2009 flu season. As a result, an additional seven million people contracted the flu virus.Gonzalez proposed a functionally similar bill during the 2017-2018 legislative session, which subsequently died in committee. Her office did not disclose when they expect the new bill, AB 555, to have its first committee hearing. Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Hulu tops 25 million subscribers but still trails Netflix by miles

first_img Share your voice Post a comment 0 Tags TV and Movies Digital Media Hulu has been adding subscribers but remains much smaller than rival Netflix.   Sarah Tew/CNET Hulu surpassed 25 million total subscribers across all products in 2018, the company said Tuesday, an increase of 8 million from a year earlier. Like all other subscription streaming video services, Hulu is still far behind global leader Netflix, which had 137 million members worldwide at the end of September. But Hulu noted its milestone means it has more video customers than even the biggest cable and satellite TV companies in the US, which includes Comcast. The cable giant, which incidentally is one of Hulu’s parents, had 21 million residential TV customers at the end of September. (Awkward… )Although smaller than Netflix, Hulu was one of the vanguards of streaming television. As Netflix has secured its dominance, Hulu has grappled with a crowd of rivals to be one of the other services most consumers sign up for. That competition is set to only grow. Traditional Hollywood giants like Disney, Time Warner and others plan to launch their own versions of Netflix this year.In its end-of-year recap, Hulu said it’s the only service of its kind that has full seasons of 80 percent of the shows nominated for Emmys last year. And people are binge-watching there, too. For Hulu’s top 100 shows, more than half of all viewing sessions were for three or more episodes of the same series.Among other stats, Hulu said average time spent per subscriber each month increased 20 percent last year, and it said viewers who subscribe to both its on-demand service and its live-TV offering spend half of their time watching that on-demand or recorded programming. Hulu said it leaned in to that behavior by investing “significantly” in exclusive programming and improving its streaming technology. It reduced buffering by 90 percent, it said. Its advertising revenue hit a new high of $1.5 billion in 2018, up more than 45 percent. The median age of a Hulu viewer is 32, and the average annual household income was $93,000.Correction, 12:11 p.m. PT: This story initially misstated the year that Hulu’s advertising revenue hit a new high.
