NEW: Sick leave bill could kill jobs, cut hours

The CA government just doesn't know when to stop hurting employees.
Assembly Bill 1522, which passed the Assembly and is making its way through the state Senate, would require businesses to provide paid sick leave for employees who work seven or more days in a year. Sick time would accrue at rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked.

Layoffs, cutbacks

Mandated sick leave legislation in San Francisco, Seattle and Connecticut has resulted in about one in seven businesses paying for the new benefit by laying off workers or reducing their hours.

15 percent of surveyed San Francisco employees said their hours had been reduced or they had been laid off after the city’s sick leave mandate was implemented, according to a 2011 study for the Institute for Women’s Policy Research; 14 percent received fewer bonuses or had other benefits cut. More than one in five reported increased work demands. Low-wage workers were hardest hit.
Yet again, IDEOLOGY trumps REALITY.

I just don't understand it.  I shake my head everytime I read what CA'ians have to put up with.  Why do they think Democrat Leftists are their answer?
