"The Bay Area is a very dynamic environment. HR has the potential to unleash that creativity for people and businesses, as well as make sure that they're current in terms of the latest labor law and organization design and development. It's a very complex legal environment. To give you an example, there are 21 different minimum-wage levels in the State of California—14 of those are in the Bay Area." – University of California-Berkeley Voices Blog
