Socialism destroying California
« on: March 16, 2010, 02:22:40 PM »

I just lost a major client thanks to the pinko commie policies of the City of San Francisco. But it's ok, because that client IS the City of San Francisco. SF has this weird rule that any company that does any work for them, in my case screen printing police and fire uniforms and rec clothes, has to fill out stacks of paperwork showing that everyone in the company is being paid what SF considers a "living wage" which is way higher than what CA considers a "minimum wage." The actual result of this is that businesses are far more inclined to hire undocumented immigrants to keep costs down, which I have absolutely no problem with, it's just funny to watch the policy fail. But it also means hiring a part time clerk to deal with the bureaucracy. Guess what, increased overhead means increased cost to the consumer.

Today the city decided our prices were too high, which is entirely their fault, and outsourced the entire project to a company in Wisconsin, not because we couldn't complete, but because, being outside CA, that company isn't subject to this stupid rule the city imposed in the first place.

Good job government. Way to be looking out for your constituents.

SF is stupid.  Come to SD and enjoy some sun and forget about the nutcase liberals for a while.

You shouldn't accept money that you know is stolen, nor do business with the crooks who stole it, anyway.

Apparently by outsourcing to Wisconsin.

I am not the business owner. Just the graphic artist. I don't work in sales. It's out of my control. Although I would certainly prefer another job.

California is simultaneously the best state int he Union and the worst. Awesome weather, AWESOME landscapes, great culture and food, BEST BEER IN THE WORLD, etc...

But the worst government. It's enough to make me leave. I'm gonna miss San Diego.

That policy is full of fail, but what else can you expect from the government?

When the people around me are doing good economically, some of that will rub off of me if I engage in business with them. Ya gotta eat somewhere.

That is EXACTLY how I feel.  Although from what I understand MA and NY and NJ have even worse governments.

I'm not sure about MA.  But ME, RI and VT likely do.  Although, the government structure in ME and VT makes it far easier to change for the better than the structure of any of those other states.
