SB 610: Commentary on “Business Confidence”

So the anti-SB 610 advertising is still going on, from representatives of the major fast food companies. I invite you to read this commentary from a McDonald’s franchisee who ended up being one of the spearheading forces for it.

What I find remarkable is the repeated usage of claims in this advertising that doing things like changing the franchise-franchiser format will lower food safety.

Insofar as that might even be true and is not simply a claim made with no evidence, what that is saying is, “If businesses are forced to be fair, they’ll cut corners”.

It’s a threat. It’s a veiled threat.

Every time you hear business lobbies talk about business confidence, or loss of jobs, or anything like that, what they’re saying is, “We will punish you for daring to regulate us”.
