Proposition 29, Dialysis Clinics: No
Here we go again. Unions aren’t getting their way with companies by established methods, so they are trying to force Californians to support them by ballot measure. Californians rightfully rejected their previous attempts, but like cockroaches, they just won’t go away, costing the state untold thousands, or even millions, to have yet another initiative on the statewide ballot.
What the unions are trying to require, a licensed physician on-site at dialysis clinics, is just not necessary. Not data supports the claim that it is.
Now make no mistake: The corporations who run these clinics are no saints. But the ballot box is no place to settle these differences between workers and employers. On the contrary, the unions’ petulance costs the sate money, money that could go to far, far better purposes.
In 2018, 59.9% of California voters rejected an essentially similar measure. In 2020, it was 63.4%. The people behind this still didn’t get the message, so let’s send one that is indisputable by voting No, No, No on Prop. 29.
