This bill enacts the "Safe Transportation Jobs and Fair Employment Rules Act," or the "STAFER Act," which requires certain subcontracted transportation center service workers to be paid certain wage rates. Specifically, the bill requires every subcontracted transportation center service worker to be compensated at a rate that is no less than the applicable standard prevailing wage rate for subcontracted transportation center service workers. In the case of a subcontracted transportation center service worker who is a food service worker, a skycap or a redcap receiving tips, a cash wage of at least two-thirds of that wage rate must be paid, provided that the tips of the employee, when added to the employee's cash wage, are equal to or exceed the minimum wage rate. Tipped skycaps, redcaps, and food service workers shall also receive the full amount of benefits and paid time off minimums as provided under the bill. The bill applies to subcontracted transportation center service workers at Newark Liberty International Airport, Newark Penn Station and the Hoboken Terminal that perform certain transportation center services, including escort services, cargo related and ramp services, in-terminal and in-station and passenger handling services, cleaning services, and concession services.
