  •  This is what's utter BS: (6+ / 0-)
    Businesses will become even more leery of investing money in Portland if they can't trust local policymakers to exercise discipline, fairness and good sense in regulating them.
    The Cult of the Job Creators and the anti-minimum wage folks don't understand how a market economy works. You have to have demand, and you don't have demand if people can't afford your products. Henry Ford understood that. He raised his workers' salaries so they could afford his product. Why don't these folks understand it? Furthermore, to redact this argument to absurdity, if it were true that businesses will run from any state or city that "overregulates" in this way the only place there should be any investment at all is....TEXAS. Funny, because we have businesses here in Maine, too. Someone is investing in them and that without the total gutting of wage laws and environmental protections our tea party governor seeks.
