Honda Center Might be Forced to Keep Workers It Fired

The state Legislature has adopted language that requires Honda Center management to pay hundreds of food and beverage workers for 60 days and then offer to continue their employment.
The move by state lawmakers comes amid an ongoing battle over the approximately 500 workers, who are set to be laid off and replaced when Anaheim Arena Management takes over food operations from a subcontractor at the end of the month.
The legislation, part of a budget trailer bill passed last week, is now before Gov. Jerry Brown for approval, according to a report in the Orange County Register.
The legislative action was set in motion in May after Voice of OC reported that Anaheim Arena Management would be eligible for millions of dollars in tax credits when it fires and replaces the workers.
