Employers cannot make hiring decisions based on race, sex, sexual preferences, disability status, and an ever-growing list of protected classes. And there is no serious call in the conservative movement to end employment discrimination laws.

California Minimum Wage Hikes: A Noble Cause With Disastrous Consequences

That's why experts are skeptical of the new law. John-Paul Deol, Partner and Head of Employment Law at Dhillon Law Group Inc., is one of them. He thinks California workers already have plenty of protections under existing state and federal wage-and-hours laws. Thus, it's hard to see what the new law does to improve the situation.

"It is very unclear what benefit this new law adds to existing law, except to increase costs and bureaucracy," he told International Business Times in an email.

Instead, he sees the new law hurting the Golden State's businesses, especially the fast-food restaurant industry, where he thinks the $22/hour wage will force companies to leave the state or hike prices. "If businesses do not leave the state, you can bet that they will pass the high labor costs onto consumers, worsening the harm already done by inflation."

"We believe the court will ultimately agree with us that the union breached its duty in failing to protect these longtime, dedicated members.

"Representatives for the union and United did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
