CA Corruption: Negotiators of Minimum Wage Law With Questionable Panera Bread Carveout Signed NDAs

It was then revealed that the chain Panera Bread got a special carveout exempting it from the requirement – and that the billionaire owner of multiple franchises in the state, Greg Flynn, also happens to be a long-time friend to Gov. Gavin Newsom and a big donor. (The carveout exempts “chains that bake bread and sell it as a standalone item.” Um, why?)
