Call to Action: Oppose AB387
The California Society of Radiologic Technologists opposes the enactment of Assembly Bill 387 and urges all California R.T.s to contact their state lawmakers to voice their opposition to this bill. Assembly Bill 387 would require health care entities to pay allied health students minimum wage for time spent in clinical or experiential training that is required for state licensure. AB 387 fails to recognize that for patient care-related training programs, myriad state and federal laws prohibit students from providing unsupervised care. Because they are in training, these students are not lawfully permitted to deliver care except within strict supervision requirements. They are not employees, and the cost of treating them as such will have the adverse consequence of reducing students' opportunities to benefit from hospital-provided training and clinical experience and exacerbating workforce shortages.
