As the local franchisee owners of hotels and a 7-11 in Arizona, we strongly urge the U.S. Senate to immediately confirm Julie Su – the daughter of franchisees – as the secretary of labor.
Franchisees play a critical role in Arizona's economy, and it is important to protect their interests. That is why HB2404, which seeks to provide franchisees with greater protections against abuses by franchisors, is so important.
HB 2404, currently being considered in the state Legislature, would have far-reaching and harmful ramifications for franchisors, franchisees, workers and the Arizona economy.
A Democratic-sponsored bill regulating franchisors’ ability to terminate contracts with a franchisee passed a House committee with bipartisan support, but Republicans say the bill needs improvement before it’s ready for the floor.
