Prediction. If they do this some Karen or Ken will want their congress person to ban it.
It kinda blows my mind that in the age of social media and how quickly the crowd can turn on someone that people still don't get how market pressure works and that it is much faster than state action. The people have NO IDEA how much power they actually have with their purchasing choices.

I could see it happening. Wouldn't bet sats on it but it isn't crazy. California's attempts to attack Uber / gig work have been pretty successful. It is utterly stupid but so are the masses. But, the food delivery companies were able to work around it by getting a proposition passed. Its all so dumb to me. The only force being exerted is from the state. But the companies are always the villains and people the helpless peasants. I don't think the average person has any clue of the collective power their free choices have and how weak their politicians are without this delusional belief in them.
