Paid Family Leave in California

California has made it official. The bill authorizing up to twelve weeks a year of paid family leave was signed on Monday. One reaction to the law:
"This is one more burden that a California employer has that no other employer in the country has to share in that cost," said Allan Zaremberg of the California Chamber of Commerce.
I have the feeling that other states may follow suit, making that complaint a short-lived one. When I last checked, over twenty other states had similar bills being discussed by legislators.
