It will be easy for the workers at Cathedral City to receive proper identification soon, an important document required for employment purposes within the city.
The City Council on Wednesday approved a marijuana employee identity card program unanimously which will save the works money and time.
The new program, which likely will take effect in the month of November, will need the marijuana workers to pay the sum of $105 in every 2 years. Besides, it will also require the workers to submit electronic fingerprinting to get clearance for working at any marijuana business within the city.
Earlier, the marijuana workers paid around $60 for submission of their fingerprints. The others who worked in several marijuana businesses or received a new marijuana job had to undergo another electronic fingerprinting round, a costly journey sometimes which may delay the worker hiring process, as per the city.
With the help of the new identity cards, the workers will be able to work at several marijuana businesses, without fingerprinting multiple times. Besides, they can also get the card before even being hired to make sure that they can begin working directly after they receive a job offer.
Notably, the move comes in after people expressed their concern related to delays in the job hiring process in a meeting of the marijuana task force.
