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.

“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...
