Gov. Jerry Brown Signs $15 Minimum Wage Law | KTLA

I wonder how many businesses today have started making plans to move to Texas and other business friendly states?

The coastal metro areas are probably okay. This law will likely further damage the economy in the Central Valley however.

Even more than Texas - this might be a boon to Nevada and Arizona, which are business friendly and also closer to California. If I was Brian Sandoval or Doug Ducey I'd be reaching out to California businesses of all sizes and letting them know about nearby options in their states...

Silicon Desert is already a thing....

More socioeconomic stratification. The gap is between the bottom and the top will grow bigger rather than smaller.

jm - your obsession is clear. And you are, of course, welcome to it But don't you think three previous threads on the topic cover it well enough? You are participating in all three previous and now start up a fourth? Hoping to get fresh reinforcements? Or that maybe those of us who have demonstrated logical rebuttal won't notice the thread title on this one?

What?

Time for the business wussies to roll over. Oh noes! A challenge! OMG!

Yes true.
Personally I can't see why someone would open in CA right now, if they were considering a business like a restaraunt.
Obviously this won't affect certain types of businesses where people already make $15+ , but for food service it's a big deal.

Actually it will affect those paying $15 hr now...because many people working for $15 have considerably more skills and experience and often degrees versus those making $10 now.

If $15 will be the new $10...then employers paying $15 now will likely have to pay $20hr or more otherwise a lot of their employees will probably seek out those $15 hr jobs.

I see a lot of jobs now that are paying like $12hr in L.A. but requiring quite a few skills , decent computer skills, and experience..


Yes I have heard of the startup scene growing in Nevada and vegas
The Silicon Desert: 5 Reasons Startups Love Las Vegas

Many already view Vegas as an extension of CA since so many travel there frequently.

Ummm, because there are lots of folks out there with money in their wallets, looking to eat prepared food?

Just like people in Seattle, Australia, Denmark, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, New Zealand, Canada, France, England, ........ where minimum wages are paid to fast food workers at the levels you fear.

I predict that you will have many more dining options in TX soon.

I live in CA ...but now I can't imagine opening a business here.

There is only so much more people are going to be willing to pay for a Burger in L.A versus Houston or Austin.

This is going to hurt middle class people (any that are left..) that make more than $15hr..but won't be able to afford to go out to eat at these higher prices too.

Sure a lot of the Pro $15 crowd will say "Who cares they can go to the market and make their own food"

Yes they can...but that will seriously alter the restaurant industry , which is a huge employer and segment of the economy
