This sort of post usually ends up in the City vs City forum, and that's probably where this one should be as well, because if you put it in one city forum, most of the conversation ends up being about the other place. That's what's happening here. If it continues in that vein, I'll just move it... or close it.

I'll contest to this. The draw for me to California is the relaxed work environment at the bottom end. In Sacramento, as long as you show up for work and do your job, there is nothing to worry about. You have to be written up three times before they are really able to let you go. Maybe the three strikes thing is just common practice among the bottom employers and not some labor law.

This consistently drew me back to Sacramento knowing this fact and because of this, I always worked my hardest.

Any job I had in Arizona was stressful and I'd always end up having soaked palms and drove to drinking. Managers and owners can do whatever they want, fire you whatever they want. Sure, it's in their right to do such, but is it right? Someone gives their life to you and you dump them off like a piece of garbage? I had a boss, in Arizona, that would smoke Marlboro reds for eight hours straight, inside. So great. Then the one time I took lunch he was on my ass. This kind of practice is not rare in Arizona. Every single job I've had at the bottom is like this.
