Warren Meyer finally had it. With the new year, he closed his park business in California.

California no longer will be able to harass him, nor to collect taxes from him and his now unemployed ex-employees, many of whom will collected benefits from the state treasury.

He told the details to Reason magazine[1]:

Note that the minimum wage increase, which Gov. Jerry Brown and other supporters claim will help workers, hurt them here by getting them laid off. Most politicians and government functionaries have no idea how private business works. When government costs go up, they just raise taxes, like Brown’s $7 billion Proposition 30 in 2012.

But when costs go up for business, either some way is found to increase revenues, or the business goes bust, or moves somewhere else. In this case, the business closed.
