So many wrong labor laws outside California

 California may have its problems, but their labor laws are top of the fucking line. There are these some of the laws:

  1. Outside of actors, candidate pictures for job applications are against the law.

  2. Overtime starts at 8 hours a day, not 40 hours a week

  3. You aren't allowed to give employment reviews when another company asks for employment confirmation, only dates of employment - this prevents bitter managers, or current employers, from tanking job applications. Like if one company does not want to let a programmer go to a competitor.

    FYI - I had to remind Citibank of this rule, despite a good reference they gave me. I had to explain to Citi, HR - politely, I think - that I didn't give a shit about New York, I was EMPLOYED in California, even when I lived in New York.

  4. You must allow an employee to carry over at least 2 weeks of vacation.
I don't get this nincompoopery going on in New York.
