An Engineered Drought

"Governor Brown is right about California’s water shortage problem, BUT does he really think that cutting our consumption by 5% is the solution? Since the farmers 80% is excluded, a 25% reduction of the remaining 20% = 5% savings overall. At the current price of water, we’re incentivized to use what we can afford of this inexpensive commodity."

Minimum wage up $3 in Oakland; may impact small businesses

"may impact small business- really a $3 increase overnight would certainly impact any small business. Probably hurts non-minimum wage restaurant workers more than anything else, only ones making minimum wage in table service establishments are the tipped employees. That leaves the best paid people in the house getting a $3/hour raise, to the detriment of the others. Back asswards."
