Labor leaders, who were among the strongest supporters of the citywide minimum wage increase approved last week by the Los Angeles City Council , are advocating last-minute changes to the law that could create an exemption for companies with unionized workforces.
How rich? As usual liberals want to force others to do what they are not willing to do themselves. They always favor two sets of rules, one for them and one for the rest of us.
The argument these labor leaders are using could be said of any employer, employee hiring negotiation. We are willing to hire you at this rate and the potential employee could then negotiate a different rate or choose another company to work for. What the labor union leaders know is the more a company has to pay for labor contracts, the less labor the company employs, which means less money for the labor unions.
