Portland rushes to Socialism again...

Trying to emulate their west coast Socialists heroes, Portland is contemplating regulation which will require businesses to pay employees for not working. Bone headed schmucks like Strimling think they know how to run businesses even though most of them have never been even close to working for a living. The mandate to require businesses to give employees paid sick leave is the latest move to redistribute someone else's money.

Government needs to get out of this social engineering and enforced welfare pattern that Lenin, Marx, Bernie, Obozo and all of the East and West coasts love.

Gimmie some Obama money

Just walk away? Easy for you

Just walk away? Easy for you to say Bruce. You haven't invested your life savings and sweat equity into a business in the People's Republic of Portland.

I completely agree Mainelion.

I completely agree Mainelion.
However, I take it that most comments about this are not from people who have and do.

If you have, how this would effect your business would be interesting to see vs. speculation based on
what is a hair brain idea from his honor the mayor.

MF once again shows us that he hates unions not because they don’t do a good job representing workers, but because he is anti-worker.

Ultimately, totalitarian

Ultimately, totalitarian solutions to employment matters help only the people holding political power. They exploit the struggles of the "powerless" in order to build up their own organizations and secure their own elections.

"It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters " - Daniel Webster

Fairness
That logic is implacable too. Free people can treat each other justly, but they can't make life fair. To get rid of the unfairness among individuals, you have to exercise power over them. The more fairness you want, the more power you need. Thus, all dreams of fairness become dreams of tyranny in the end. Andrew Klavan in a WSJ column
