Because unions necessarily decrease jobs as do minimum wage laws.
And that is neither a theory nor an accident of process, it is a primary function of such policies.

I think you hit the nail in the spot here, what better way to push taxes to finance and build a desalination plant with scaring people that they will be waterless and become thirsty in a couple of years, people will be begging for the plant and will open their wallets to the taxes.
Meanwhile those behind the profits will be singing in their way to the bank.
Yes, I remember that the topic of building a plant in California has been in the making for a while, but the money is the problem.
Nation's largest ocean desalination plant goes up near San Diego; Future of the California coast?
The problem with the project and why is taking soo long is that is more cons than pros, first it will required incredible amounts of power for the plant to work, then the price is so high that water will become as expensive as gold, this will put a dent on Californians home budgets and still who will pay for the water of those that could not afford the hike in prices.
Then to change sea water into drinkable water will required incredible amounts of sea water to be sucked up into the plant causing a possible ecological disaster in the coast as the water is sucked up with any fish of marine life.
A desalination plant is not cheap and is not as clean as people think.
But it is on the making already and all it needs is enough money to get finished.

The country would learn to do without California agriculture.....It is needed. The California experiment is failing and will continue to do so.....Not enough water in the desert.
They should start looking west instead of east for water it is the only logical long term solution. Problem is California is filled with pie in the sky minded progressives who's ideals float on the wind like a paper bag.
