Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Catherine Rampell has a column about terrible events in New York City.  Although she reports it as a good thing here is what happened:

The Big Apple, you see, is joining a handful of other trailblazing cities such as Washington, San Francisco and Newark in guaranteeing workers what Congress has not: mandatory sick days. Wednesday was the first day that the newly covered workers could use the sick leave hours they have legally accrued.

In short, the government is making it more expensive to employe folks.  It is another way to make life more difficult for lightly skilled folks.  As we know, folks need to develop their resumes to reach financial success.  MWG often complains about Congress but here is an example of Congressional wisdom – at least when compared to New York City.  NYC is working to keep the taxi monopoly and keep poor people out of work.
