L.A. area Assemblyman Isadore Hall’s AB 1576 was passed unanimously by the Assembly’s Committee on Labor and Employment yesterday.[…]
At yesterday’s hearing before the committee, performers Cameron Bay and Rod Daily, who contracted HIV last year (though not on-set, it would seem), testified in favor of the law.
Hall sounded triumphant, stating:
” … A strong reaffirmation of the California Legislature’s commitment to protect workers in the state, regardless of the type of work performed. For too long, the adult film industry has thrived on a business model that exploits its workers and puts profit over workplace safety.”
