The Road to California is Paved With Good Intentions: Why Texas City Councils Should NOT mandate Cal

My apologies to California, it IS a nice place to visit, but you would NOT want to start a business there! However, the City Councils of Texas' largest cities disagree. They are doing their best to bring California's hostile business climate to Texas. We should all hope they fail. The City Councils of Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin have all passed ordinances that mandate specific PTO policies for employers working within their city limits. For example, Austin's ordinance requires any employer working within the City of Austin to provide one hour of paid-time off for every 30 hours worked. The time-off begins accruing as soon as the employee begins working and can accrue up to 48 hours
