Extra Edition: Historic Overtime Pay for Farmworkers.

California farmworkers have now the right to get the same overtime pay that most other workers have. The new law, first of its kind in the nation, began taking full effect on January 1st for most businesses and farms. A news reporter explains the details of the new state law and the debate that continues surrounding its implementation.

Guest: Nadia López, News Reporter, The Fresno Bee/Central Valley News Collaborative, Fresno, CA.

Help for Health Insurance Buys. If you buy health insurance through the Covered California marketplace, chances are that you will get a big discount on your monthly premium — or pay no premium at all – thanks to the American Rescue Plan law. But many people in California and the US who are eligible are not yet getting the benefit. A health care journalist explains.

Guest: Bernard J. Wolfson, Managing Editor for California Healthline, Kaiser Health News, Los Angeles, CA.
