Why must this be mandated? Business owners either already understand or need to learn that they must have employees to do the work or their companies will not succeed. If an employer does not take purposeful steps to become an employer of choice, then the failure to retain quality staff falls on them. Let the system work as it is designed. People apply for jobs where they wish and accept job offers where they wish. If the work environment does not meet the employees needs, that employee needs to look elsewhere. If there are no other options, the employee must reevaluate they are trying to have met. All of this, the perks at work, salaries for men vs women, elevated minimum wage, is all tied together. It may not appear so, but the PEOPLE wield tremendous power if only they would remember that fact when it came right down to it.
