I'm pretty sure that this is how Khrushchev used to operate and probably his contemporaries still do.... Everybody loved Gerawan farming. They paid on time, checks always cleared you got in, you got out, you got your money & went home. They were the biggest agricultural operation in the state where agriculture is the largest economy, and in fact the largest part of the world's sixth largest economy (were indeed California an independent sovereign nation, or so they say...) So when the unions came around and organized everybody, everybody signed up because it was the thing to do if you wanted to look legit. It cost you some money.... but welcome to America, that's how it is... everything costs you some money. But still it was the highest paid place in the state, and so the union never bothered to come up with a contract, and everybody was happy. Until now 2 decades later the state of California says that if the farmer and the farm workers do not come up with a contract under the normal Union procedures the state will impose a contract of its own device. Governor Brown and Kevin De Leon, and our legislators all rubber stamp this, but the district courts overturned it, as clearly being past any reasonable statute of limitations. They were immediately overruled by the state supreme court with no action of the legislature whatsoever. Nobody voted. The citizens did not Congress. The three part checks-and-balance system fell completely apart. But, (as Paul Harvey would say) that's not the end of the story! Tesla Motors finds itself in the same situation! Well paid workers but no Union Contracts! ...and someone with an axe to grind is claiming the best and the brightest in the whole state (and the business which Brown and DeLeon & most legislators bent over backwards and kissed butt to elevate) is mistreating their workers and needs to be unionized immediately. Well, Heavens above, The People have spoken! & We can't have any Non-Democratic non sense in this state! But in Kalifornia, the meaning of the word Democratic has reversed 180° from the marble halls of ancient Greece. Soon Tesla's will be effectively built by state workers. Working for a company controlled by the state under a union controlled by the state through a contract written by the state authorized by the governor the legislators and the state supreme court and ignored by the young people of California who are all stuck to their PlayStations right now. Anyhow Khrushchev would be proud of the way Brown is spending his last year in office. He should just put on the brown shirt and the armband and be done with it.
