3. state government hates local control

"A proposal that blocks cities and towns from regulating paid time off, retirement plans or other employee benefits received preliminary approval in the Senate on Tuesday.

Republican lawmakers are also proposing their own ballot measure that would give the Legislature sole authority to set the minimum wage in the state.

The proposals come as San Francisco is poised to become the first city in the country to mandate full parental leave for most workers. Meanwhile, Arizona coalitions are seeking signatures for initiatives to increase the minimum wage and set standards for paid sick leave.

Rep. J.D. Mesnard, R-Chandler, is sponsoring the proposal that would prohibit cities and towns from regulating non-wage compensation including welfare benefits, bonuses, retirement plans as well as sick, vacation and severance pay. The bill clarifies a 2013 law that declares the state as the only body that can regulate employee benefits, he said."



So basically we're all in this low-wage economically depressed sinking ship together and no one is allowed to life-raft to safety
