image Mountain View's Lack-Luster Minimum Wage Increase: Who is the Problem? 120_wagemvmcalister_1.jpg original image ( 3185x2152) - by R. Stevens
Despite a council chamber filled with proponents of a minimum wage increase that would come closer to matching Seattle's $15 an hour, the Mountain View City Council only approved an hourly rate of $10.30. Vice-Mayor Jack McAlister is a business owner who should recuse himself; council member John Inks claims that most people work minimum wage jobs only temporarily, although the evidence shows otherwise.

Rents are expensive in the Silicon Valley city of Mountain View, California, home to Google and LinkedIn. For people working for minimum wage there is no money left for food, clothes, health care, transportation or education, after paying monthly rent. Often they share apartments with strangers, while others live in their cars. Despite this, on October 9 the city's council voted against all proposals for increases to the minimum wage except one allowing the tiniest of increases. "We cannot be...

“The TMT is an atrocity the size of Aloha Stadium,” said Kamahana Kealoha, a Hawaiian cultural practitioner and organizer of those who held a protest today at Mauna Kea, where a scheduled groundbreaking ceremony was delayed. “It is like building a sky-scraper on top of the mountain, a place that is being violated in many ways culturally, environmentally and spiritually.” Photo of protest at Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation offices today in solidarity with protests to stop the bui...

If you see something, say something. Or text something, straight to BART police—along with your contact and location information, and a picture of your face. That’s what “BART Watch,” a new app designed to encourage users to report suspicious activities, would like you to do. But we’re calling out this app for its own suspicious activities - having no privacy policy that explains the sensitive information it collects and may be sharing with others, and for encouraging people to file...
