Default F%^&*%$g liberals declare war on entrepreneurs again.

Up to 12 weeks sick leave mandated for EE's of companies with <500 EEs.

Who's gonna pay them after the employer goes bankrupt?

In the new world, the first thing we're going to do is kill all the liberals.

They will offer "Tax Credits" to help you get less screwed by this deal.

https://www.npr.org/2020/03/19/81832...trump-approved

Quote:
Paid sick leave
The bill establishes a federal emergency paid-leave benefits program to provide payments to some employees.

It requires employers with fewer than 500 employees to provide two weeks' worth of paid sick leave if employees are unable to work because they're subject to quarantine or isolation, are experiencing symptoms of COVID–19, are caring for someone who is in quarantine or isolation and/or have children in schools that have closed.

Employers themselves will receive tax credits to offset the costs of providing this paid leave.


Under the legislation, an employer cannot require employees to find a replacement worker for themselves or require them to use other paid time off.

For those who are self-employed, there will be a tax credit equivalent to the sick leave amount.

The legislation also gives up to three months of paid family and medical leave, equivalent to no less than two-thirds of the person's pay.

Wealth redistribution doesn't work in small businesses with no revenue.

This will just make companies have contractors instead of employees. Better save for your tax liability at the end of the year because you'll get a 1099.

No, the libs have an answer for that too. California Bill to reclassify many independent contractors as employees.

We are a small business, and we try and take care of our core people, but if they call out sick for 3 months, we'll just shut it down. This will wipe out small businesses AND be a huge opportunity for fraud and for slackers nationwide.

Useful, as you know, only if the business can manage to stay afloat AND generate a tax liability.

My wife got word of this last Friday.

The result was her laying off all of her employees.

California has a policy that deters the state or local entities from purchasing outside the state. I wonder what they plan to do when all of the business have moved out?

If I had a business, there would be a California fee of 125% of the purchase price.

Just about every company I have come across currently have a hiring freeze. Also seeing cost cutting across the board. Lots of independant contractors will have a tough time keeping or securing business this year.

When I was still working I called it the PITA surcharge. 😁

I swear, this whole thing seems like a set up for collapse. Maybe that is the tin foil hat talkin', but none of it is adding up.

Why else would they shut the whole economy down for a second tier threat, that won’t kill as many as common flu? The whole reason is to crash the economy.

There's plenty of theories out there on the origin. That's also with the WHO, World Health Organization, carrying water for the Chinese. And then there's the Commie bastard Chinese themselves trying to deflect and appear completely innocent of covering that plague up.

With all the crazy shit going on, the real cause will be a while before the dust settles.
