Maddogsbrer's both live in California . . .
. . . California just wants to do it nicer, and gentler than South Africa, and progressivism is just the model to accomplish the goal.
One thing I forgot to mention in my earlier piece is that the entire reason for many policies like massive minimum wage increases is to drive the poor out of the wealthy coastal enclaves of California. Or make sure they are segregated into temporary living arrangements within the enclave.
Proposed law would subsidize housing for cops, firefighters
Housing prices will continue to force the poor out of these areas, and require subsidies for the more desirable middle class individuals like firefighters, and police. The minimum wage will ensure the elimination of a large number of low paying jobs, and automation. The result will be an even wealthier more exclusive wealthy coastal enclave, separated by a mountain chain from the poor.
These policies look nearly exactly like apartheid but without the draconian laws which created apartheid. There are no color laws, no segregation laws, instead, the state has simply limited land available for housing, and priced low income workers out of employment by raising the minimum wage to heights where the low skilled poor worker cannot hope to offer an employer a value in exchange for $15 her hour. This is apartheid written softer, and gentler, but with the same outcome. This is progressivism in its purist form.
Win/win. I guess!?
