    Tom Amiano wants parents who hire a babysitter over the age of 18 who is not a family member to provide workers comp, vacation time and they also have to provide a "sitter" for them (my words) so that they can take breaks and have a meal etc. The lunacy of the left never ceases to amaze me.



    "How will parents react when they find out they will be expected to provide workers' compensation benefits, rest and meal breaks and paid vacation time for…babysitters? Dinner and a movie night may soon become much more complicated.

    Assembly Bill 889 (authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, will require these protections for all “domestic employees,” including nannies, housekeepers and caregivers.

    The bill has already passed the Assembly and is quickly moving through the Senate with blanket support from the Democrat members that control both houses of the Legislature – and without the support of a single Republican member. Assuming the bill will easily clear its last couple of legislative hurdles, AB 889 will soon be on its way to the Governor's desk.

    Under AB 889, household “employers” (aka “parents”) who hire a babysitter on a Friday night will be legally obligated to pay at least minimum wage to any sitter over the age of 18 (unless it is a family member), provide a substitute caregiver every two hours to cover rest and meal breaks, in addition to workers' compensation coverage, overtime pay, and a meticulously calculated timecard/paycheck.

    Failure to abide by any of these provisions may result in a legal cause of action against the employer including cumulative penalties, attorneys' fees, legal costs and expenses associated with hiring expert witnesses, an unprecedented measure of legal recourse provided no other class of workers – from agricultural laborers to garment manufacturers. (On the bright side, language requiring an hour of paid vacation time for every 30 hours worked was amended out of the bill in the Senate.)

    Unfortunately, the unreasonable costs and risks contained in this bill will discourage folks from hiring housekeepers, nannies and babysitters and increase the use of institutionalized care rather than allowing children, the sick or elderly to be cared for in their homes. I can't help but wonder if that is the goal of AB 889 – a terrible bill that needs to be stopped.

    More information on the text and status of the bill can be accessed from my webpage at senate.ca.gov/lamalfa."

    He wants to ensure the people taking care of your kids are qualified to brainwash them with Marxist busllshit.

    Remember these are the same clowns that believe it takes a "community" to raise a child.

    Remember its called "progressivism" as well - meaning progress - or slow change.

    Wait until your little youngins try to kill you then play victim...... Yeah I've read that book before.... I think it was Mao something and called it the youth or "cultural" revolution..

    Cultural Revolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    That is where they brainwashed kids with the notion their parents "conservative" ideas were tyrannical against the government and that it was nothing more than appropriate to make their parents "pay" for their tyrannical "conservative" actions by -- beating the fuck out of them in public and literally spitting in their own parents faces while pelting them with rocks or anything they could find.

    Imagine Lord of the Flies in real life...

    Apparently now as adults in their 50's and 60's they're all allegedly sorry for what they did to their parents...

    I suppose the sorrow is a little too late...

    They are insane in California. I saw an article the other day where they have banned "flat sheets" in hotels and motels to prevent injury to the housecleaners. ETA: Injury due to lifting the mattress for flat sheets.

    Only fitted will now be legal. Unreal!!!

    Oh and many claim they were "clueless" as to where Pol Pot got his socialist ideas from............

    Where the fuck do you think he got them from?

    Yeah children stabbing their own people with bamboo, executing their elders with garden utensils??

    Maybe I should change the subject to Stalin or Hitler?

    I wonder if they know what those two batshit crazy lunatics did in the name of their socialism...

    I suppose it all has the same message attached tho Mao, Stalin Pol Pot, Nancy Pelosi and it's conform to our ideas or get the fuck out or we will kill you.
