It’s California’s latest and greatest idea for the utopian nanny state, and it wins today’s prize for absurd government overreach from the radical leftist elite.


 California Assembly Bill 889, known as the Domestic Work Employee Equality, Fairness, and Dignity Act, submitted by Assemblymember Tom Ammiano of San Francisco, will require anyone employing a “domestic employee” to provide minimum wages, workmen’s compensation, rest and meal breaks and a variety of other benefits. The prospective law could apply to nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, even babysitters. House-sitters, dog-walkers and other people who provide services around the home may also be included. 

Can Chapel Hill and Carrboro be far behind?
