I know it is easy to try to say it is all due to "illegals", the reality is that it is related to a number of things, but prop 13 has played a key role in what the state is able to fund.
    I have really lived in California, and I don't know any such thing. Prop. 13 has been spit in the ocean compared to the wreckage caused by illegal immigration from Mexico. And one big reason the problem got so bad was that people with a bad case of white liberal guilt have all along been ready to rush to the SOB's defense, holding out the crying towel for them and shrieking "RACIST!!" at anyone who dared to call a spade a spade.

    That's an interesting view, one that sounds wonderful in theory. In practice, however, it's clear that most companies pay you the least they feel they can get away with while still keeping you as an employee.

    Thats not even close to reality. If you track the implementation of prop 13 with the decline in state revenue there is a direct correlation....and logically it makes complete sense that when property taxes are capped the state is going to be taking in less and less money which means the state can fund less and less projects. Roads, Schools, beaches, etc...don't operate for free.

    I understand why prop 13 passed and I recognize that there were good parts of prop 13 (for instance, it helped elderly people on fixed incomes keep their homes by capping their property taxes)....I get it. The reality is though....programs don't fund themselves and if you are going to cut taxes/cap taxes....then you aren't going to have the same level of services that you enjoyed when more money was coming in. That is just basic common sense.

    That is a rather idealoglic and naive view. Company's rarely pay based on value to the company. More often they pay as little as they can get away with paying. There is a reason why corporations love a hungry and large work pool. The reality that most company's don't appreciate, however, is that workers generally respond to company's who value their work. There is a reason why In N Out burger has a much lower turnover than the average fast food company and why workers at Costco are almost across the board better than employees at Sam's club. The workers at each of those companies are paid higher than their counterparts and so they value their job and want to keep it. The Burger King or Sam's club employee can always find another job paying them the low rate that they are paid.

    Deflect all you want. Radical left kooks do not understand that they are responsible for the amount of value they have to a company. Radical left kooks disengage their failures to offer anything of value from what they believe they should be paid.

    I do not know why radical left kooks never learn. I suppose if a radical left kook had any brains he would not be a radical left kook. What do you think?

    Authoritarian statists might be unteachable. Do you believe the states should compel businesses to have unions? Should states intercede on behalf of unions to tip the scales against businesses? Or should the worthless, parasitic unions be allowed to die?

Sorry you don't agree but doubt you have experienced as much as I have in my 67 years.
    Well, I've experienced more of Texas. I was born here and have lived here for over 59 years.

    It is obvious to me that you have no concept as to the role of the govt. and spending more, providing more only creates dependence and that destroys personal responsibility. There is a reason that people are flocking to TX. Maybe one of these days you will figure it out.
    What is "obvious" to you is no concern of mine. Feel free to be wrong, both about Texas and about politics.

    If you are worth more than go somewhere else.

    Radical left wing kooks often believe they are worth far more to a business than they actually are worth. I believe it is a mental disorder.

    If you are, in fact, worth more that you are being paid then someone will be willing to pay you based on your value. But you are not worth more. You are worth what you are being paid.

    There is a reason why corporations love a hungry and large work pool.
    You are confusing businesses with radical left wing politicians. For them you are worth more when you are both miserable and not too bright. You will vote for the leftists who promise to take from me to give to you.

    The reality that most company's don't appreciate, however, is that workers generally respond to company's who value their work. There is a reason why In N Out burger has a much lower turnover than the average fast food company and why workers at Costco are almost across the board better than employees at Sam's club.

    If you believe you can earn more elsewhere then vote with your feet. The competition for the best workers will work in your favor. If, in fact, you are worth more.

    That statement only confirms what I said before. As long as corporations are able to influence politics such that there is a large pool of hungry workers that will work for peanuts, they need not pay what an employee is worth. They can pay as little as possible, knowing that there are not a lot of options for the worker to go elsewhere.

    This is why free land giveaways by states like Texas, do not benefit the worker or the state. Corporate welfare rarely "trickles down" much beyond the pocketbook of the CEO or shareholder
