I would agree but I don't know what can be really done about it. Many contractors of course do not abide but when you have a complaint that is when they get you. The Laws in CA for contracting are so onesided it's pitiful.
It ia very simple, if it,s one sided, do you guys get together have a state assn. lobby on your behalf, if not then the state will mess with you every chance they get, there is strenth in unity.
