If you remember, I posted a few months back about a push to have a referendum on the ballot for voters to approve a law that would require Orange County employers offer sick leave to their employees. The law would require that an employer give employees one hour off with pay for each 37 hours the employee works. This will increase labor costs by at least three percent.

Of course, there were lawsuits. Unfortunately for the socialists, they sued the wrong person. By the time they got around to suing the correct one, it was too late to stop the ballots, which were already being printed.

The thinking astounds me. The proponents of the law say that “it’s wrong for employees to be punished financially if they’re too ill to come into work.” but see no problem with punishing a business financially if the employee doesn’t work.
