California State Policies Collecting New Bodies...



If California is purposely attempting to destroy their economy, then they are doing a wonderful job.


The insanity of what California has done with this new minimum wage law is simply par for the course. After all, they have systematically gone to war with every sector of their economy and every business who has paid in to their ever expanding list of entitlements and benefits that continue to be unsupported by their tax base.


You see, in the name of social justice, they have raised the minimum wage for fast food and restaurant workers to $20.00 per hour. The results are just as horrific as you might expect them to be.

 
 

Over the last week, restaurants all over California have closed down, moved full time employees to part time status, and/or reduced overall hours scheduled so that workers are now working in skeleton crews which can barely cover the overall workload.


Numerous employees showed up to work only to find the doors locked, time clocks disabled or removed, and/or having managers at the door telling them to go home because the business was no longer open.


Now before you say that this is some kind of barbaric practice, remember that when a business announces in advance to its employees that it is closing, in order to try to do right by them, almost 100% of the time the employees start quitting with no notice or simply stop showing up entirely. So what goes around comes around.


Repeatedly in interviews, the affected workers have said that they would much rather still have their jobs at the lower rate than now having to look for work, but it is what it is.


Yet the left continuously tells us that this is all a fallacy. It does not really happen. People do not lost their jobs when minimum wage goes up; but if that's true, why then us New York State trying to enact a law making price hikes and benefits cutting illegal for twelve (12) months following a minimum wage increase?


You see, once again in an attempt to "help people," government has made their life infinitely more complicated and worse. They think they can just edict something into reality when in fact they cannot, and the people suffer.


It is always the people that suffer.


As Ronald Reagan once said, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government, and I'm here to help."
