Plastic ban, or jobs?

NipomoOctober 5, 2012 

Thanks to the environmentalists, one more industry will be down the tubes. Plastic bags are manufactured in Los Angeles; material bags are made in China.

How many more jobs will be lost because of this “bag decision”?

My daughter is a cashier in San Luis Obispo County. I asked her how the new regulation was going. She said it’s the pits. I live on the border of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. It is just as easy for me to shop in Santa Maria, and I will.
