Why does the California legislature suggest so quite a few rules that make no economic perception? (“California’s French Workweek,” Critique & Outlook, April 16). Maybe mainly because a bulk of our reps have never ever operate a enterprise? Assemblywoman

Cristina Garcia,

who is proposing the 32-hour workweek, was an activist prior to getting office. Out of 58 Democrats in the California Assembly, at the very least a dozen have a comparable background. I identified only four Democrats who ran corporations just before taking workplace. Attorneys, teachers and authorities directors dominate the rest.

Our area paper invited two columnists to existing arguments for and towards the workweek proposal. The a person who argued in opposition to it, to my surprise, is the most liberal columnist. He expended a calendar year working a small small business.

California will proceed to drive firms to other states right until we substitute the utopian idealists in the condition legislature with folks who have an understanding of economics and what drives employment and higher tax revenues.
