Workplace Readiness Week was created by the state of California to support young people currently working and those who will soon be working. A state standards aligned five-day curriculum (with extension lessons to expand the cycle for up to ten days of learning) is available on the California Federation of Teachers website.

All workers in California share the same basic rights in the workplace, no matter your age or if you are a student! You have the right to minimum wage, sick days, overtime and even the right to join a union.
