    So my nephew's wife is a manager for Chuck E Cheese in BR area while he finished school. She is now in California working for 2 weeks at one of there stores as a manager because the laws in California make them hire people at the same rate that the person who left was getting and they cant afford to pay staff. So she is going to get overtime to make extra money - they pay all her expenses too. How nuts is that?

    I guess on the one hand it prevents a person from being fired for the sole purpose of replacing with cheaper employee. However it also cuts the other way, maybe you get fired before you make to much

    "California has become the first state to require publicly traded companies to include women on their boards of directors, according to a law signed Sunday by Gov. Jerry Brown.

    The measure requires at least one female director on each board of California-based corporations by the end of next year. Companies would need up to three female directors by the end of 2021, depending on the number of board seats.

    The Democratic governor referenced the objections and legal concerns that the law has raised.

    "I don't minimize the potential flaws that indeed may prove fatal to its ultimate implementation," Brown wrote in a signing statement. "Nevertheless, recent events in Washington, D.C. — and beyond — make it crystal clear that many are not getting the message."

    Wow. So the State is now meddling in corporate business which of course means, they will need to hire people to look for transgressions and assess fines. (Companies can be fined $100,000 for a first violation and $300,000 for subsequent violations.
    The law also requires companies to report their board composition to the California secretary of state and imposes a $100,000 fine if a company fails to do so). And the courts will get slowed down by more lawsuits. And all the while Moonbeam admits that potential flaws may prove fatal. In other words, "we haven't thought this through but it sounds like the PC thing to do, so let's go with it". Fuck CA.


    "Having more women on boards will make companies more successful, said state Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, who authored the bill, SB 826.

    Women tend to be more collaborative and are better at multitasking, the Santa Barbara Democrat said. She believes having more women in power also could help reduce sexual assault and harassment in the workplace."

    I have yet to see any all-male Boards of Directors who were unsuccessful because they couldn't multitask or collaborate. PEOPLE at that level know how to get the job done. Not to mention, Boards don't do the work of the company. As for reducing sexual assault and harassment? USC recently figured out that a male doctor in the student health office had been sexually assaulting students for over 30 years. The USC BoD has PLENTY of female members. They were just as happy to cash their Board paycheck as the male members were.

    "Fair well and adieu my fair California"

    Texas, Louisiana and all the Dixie states should raid California and offer their businesses a better working environment and tax breaks to leave. Democrats are like cancer wherever they take hold they destroy. Schools, cities, industry, sports, land use, entertainment, wars and military, government, science, religion and family they fuck it up.

    California in being "fundamentally transformed" they will never see Meaux's ugly face in that socialist shithole to spend one dime. The California dream is now a nightmare.

    What would stop a company who didn't want to play along... just having one of the men say they identify as a woman?

    I moved to California through my job for a promotion.

    I am biding time to retire and cant wait to get back to Louisiana or Texas for retirement.

    It has been a good financial move and I met my wife here but the politics and taxes are unbelievable.

    Lol. They look gay AF (not the Smothers Bros) in that video even though they aren't. I loved that song when I was a kid.
