THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Free Money For All

---- Democrats hand out "free" money to voters.

(Los Angeles Times)  -  Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday will sign a bill expanding California’s pioneering family-leave law to help more low-income workers and provide better benefits.

The action comes 15 years after California became the first state in the nation to guarantee workers paid time off to care for a new child or ailing family member.

California's program provides workers — men or women — with 55% of their wages for up to six weeks.

The measure Brown is signing Monday afternoon will allow people earning close to minimum wage to be paid 70% of their salary while on leave, while workers with higher pay, up to $108,000 annually, will get 60% of their salary during leave. The change takes effect in 2018. It comes one week after California raised its minimum wage to $15 by 2022.

San Francisco last week approved the best benefits in the country, mandating that businesses give new mothers and fathers six weeks of fully paid time off.

The bill was supported by a broad cross-section of business and labor groups, as well as Attorney General Kamala Harris, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Jenya Cassidy, director of the California Work & Family Coalition.
