https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckdevore/2018/08/06/california-passed-15-an-hour-two-years-ago-hows-it-working/#5926362b4fa4

* While California’s state college and university system is highly regarded nationally, its public K-12 system is at the bottom of most surveys.

* California’s 2017 retail electric prices were 89 percent higher than in its peer competitor, Texas.

* California’s gasoline prices remain the highest in the contiguous 48 states, at $3.619 per gallon of unleaded, some 26 percent higher than the national average of $2.865.

* California’s once-vaunted water storage and conveyance system has been essentially frozen in time for decades, as the state’s politicians spend billions on environmental programs and studies and precious little on expending and securing California’s water supply.

* California’s highway system, once the envy of the world, has similarly been put at the bottom of the priority list, regularly being ranked at the tail end of national surveys.

* Further, the state’s union labor agreements and environmental approval maze contribute to the state’s road maintenance costs being almost 40 percent higher than the national average.

* As for state and local taxes, Forbes ranked California as 45th-worst in 2016.

* The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, meanwhile rated California as having the 47th-worst lawsuit climate in the nation last year.

* The regulatory burden on small business was studied in a report authorized by the California legislature 10 year ago which found that small businesses faced a complex puzzle of state and local rules that cost about $134,000 per year in compliance costs.

* According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2016, the cost of housing in California’s metropolitan areas was 60 percent higher than in its small towns and rural areas. Including all goods and services, California’s cities were about 16 percent more costly than in the surrounding small town and rural areas.

* But, so far in 2018, California manufacturing has started to lose jobs and, if the trend continues, it will see its first loss in employment in nine years. By comparison, the U.S. has added 193,000 manufacturing jobs through July 2018.

* This is why the California Department of Finance estimated that the minimum wage law would end up costing state government an additional $3.6 billion annually. In addition, the minimum wage law will also ripple into the cost to employ the state’s 300,000 K-12 public school teachers, with the added cost to the beleaguered California taxpayer ranging from $6 to $10 billion.

This is what our liberal friends want for the entire country.

Some people, CA liberals, prefer millions of illiterate peasants and people pooping, pissing, doing drugs and sleeping on the streets.

To each his own.

Strangely enough you only use those words when you post about Hispanic illegals. Sounds hypocritical to me, but that is just my 2 cents.

Even if you are correct, illiterate peasants of the past are not the same as illiterate peasants of today.

The past people came here to build. The current ones come here to take from society and break down the fabric of a functioning society.
