From KQED Silicon Valley, we present a debate over Measure D: an effort to raise the minimum wage in San Jose. Inspired by a SJSU sociology class, activist students helped bring this ballot measure to the voters. But fears of job losses and rising costs have many in the business community fighting back against this measure.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Larry Stone, businessman and Santa Clara County assessor
  • Matthew Mahood, president and CEO of the San Jose Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce
