No need for things like business owners to set the wages of their own employees anymore.
They also gutted a previously unrelated bill and filled it with language that would essentially destroy the entire fossil fuel production industry in California. No more oil production here at all, so the companies that invested to create offshore drilling stations or any of the hundreds of oil wells visible as you drive through Bakersfield will just to pull all that infrastructure up at their own expense and move it somewhere else.
The irony of the latter bill is that it comes on the heels of the Governor scrambling to keep californias last remaining nuclear power station online.
