Business Wants Controls on Workers' Comp

August 24, 2003

Re "The System Needs Work," editorial, Aug. 19: Isn't this an interesting state of affairs. It seems that the best way to improve business profitability in California and prevent companies from fleeing is to use the state government to establish a regulated market with the intent of capping payouts to workers' compensation claims.

Huh? Government regulation? Begged for by businesses? I guess big government and high regulation and market controls are all not so bad. But if bureaucratic regulation is so necessary to control the costs paid out by businesses toward health coverage for citizens, why is the same so evil when applied toward controlling how much citizens pay businesses for energy?
