Workers in Los Angeles and Orange counties rallied Tuesday, Nov. 15 at corporate fast-food headquarters in a statewide protest of a proposed referendum that would nullify a newly-approved measure aimed at boosting wages in the industry.

About 200 people outside Chipotle Mexican Grill’s headquarters in Newport Beach. Other stops on the protest route included the headquarters for Del Taco in Lake Forest and El Pollo Loco in Costa Mesa.

Signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in September, the FAST Recovery Act is set to take effect Jan. 1, 2023, creating a 10-person, state-run council to negotiate wages, hours and working conditions for the more than half a million fast-food workers in California.
