This law was probably secretly funded by Vancouver BC, because they'll be getting a lot more movie and TV work because of this. California is already bleeding jobs in the entertainment field because of the high costs of production. This is not going to help.

Also, the software industry makes heavy use of contractors. This is going to hurt them as well - especially startups who can't afford a payroll in crazy expensive California, and have made do with short and medium term contractors. It's a huge risk management issue - contractors have a fixed and limited downside. Hiring an employee is more risky because of the up-front costs and the risk of lawsuit if you let them go when the finances get tough.
