Why Don’t Many Companies Hire California Residents?
So why is there even an issue to begin with?
There could be a a number of reasons why companies choose not to hire virtual based agents out of California.
Tough Labor Laws: Working as Independent Contractor can sometimes get into a grey area that can cause some legal issue that are risky. California has some pretty tough laws.
High Minimum Wage: States with high minimum wage laws, California is currently higher than average at 10/hour, are often passed over if the minimum wage is higher than the rate they want to pay.
Cost to Register: Companies must register in the states they have a business presence. Therefore, some companies may pick and choose which states they choose to register in. California may be more expensive than others.
