Not Enough Politicians Come From Business
Why does the California legislature propose so many legal guidelines that make no financial sense? (“California’s French Workweek,” Evaluate & Outlook, April 16). Maybe mainly because a the vast majority of our associates have never ever operate a organization? Assemblywoman
who is proposing the 32-hour workweek, was an activist right before getting business office. Out of 58 Democrats in the California Assembly, at minimum a dozen have a related track record. I uncovered only 4 Democrats who ran corporations just before having workplace. Attorneys, academics and govt directors dominate the relaxation.
Our nearby paper invited two columnists to present arguments for and in opposition to the workweek proposal. The a single who argued in opposition to it, to my shock, is the most liberal columnist. He used a yr managing a compact organization.
California will proceed to push firms to other states until eventually we change the utopian idealists in the state legislature with people who recognize economics and what drives work and higher tax revenues.
