From New York Post :
Libertarian: California’s Foolish War on Tech
California’s anti-business Democratic leaders are now “singling out the innovative tech sector for torment,” fumes The Orange County Register’s Steven Greenhut , “as if they’re purposely trying to drive these companies” — which have helped make the Golden State “the world’s fifth-largest economy” — to Texas or Arizona. Recently passed Assembly Bill 5, for example, prevents app-based services such as Uber and Lyft from considering drivers independent contractors, which undermines their business model. Meanwhile, state and city attorneys have filed a “controversial lawsuit” against the companies, and the state has launched an “attack on small businesses” that “sell products to Californians on online platforms.” Officials’ “anti-corporate ideology” is so extreme, sighs Greenhut, that they’re pursuing it even if it hurts their own citizens.
