The city of Los Angeles is determined to put 50-60 employers straight out of business for the greater good. And it just so happens the greater good benefits labor unions most of all.
For three years now, the L.A. government, with heavy backing from labor unions, has been working on a proposal to carve the city into 11 franchise zones. Once it does this, it'll assign a monopoly to one waste-hauling company for all the businesses in each zone. There are 50-60 waste haulers who regularly pick trash up at businesses in the city. The franchise zone proposal will put most of them out of business. They will be legally forbidden to sell their services in the city of Los Angeles. Residential trash pickup would be unaffected by the proposal.
