1:30 amWashington Week [#5323%] * Official jobs figures won't be released until Friday, but early indications are that November could be among the strongest months for job growth in 2013. And while the job market appears to be steadying, wages for many workers remain stagnant. President Obama spoke out this week about income inequality and the need to increase the Federal minimum wage calling the growing gap between the rich and poor "a fundamental threat to the American dream." David Wessel of The Wall Street Journal will have analysis of the latest economic indicators and explain what they reveal about the stability of the US recovery.
* After 2 months of various technical failures, the Obama administration unveiled an overhauled healthcare website on December 1. That's led to a surge in enrollments this week, but some problems persist. Jackie Calmes of The New York Times will report on President Obama's continuing push to sell the benefits of the Affordable Care Act for uninsured Americans, especially young adults, who seem resistant to buying health insurance.
* A judge ruled Detroit can file for bankruptcy protection to help the city shed billions of dollars in debt. But the ruling also opens the door for dramatically reduced pension payments to employees and retirees. Michael Fletcher of The Washington Post will explain why the Detroit decision could reverberate far beyond Michigan and impact public employee pensions in other cities around the country.
* We will also have a special tribute to Nelson Mandela who passed away Thursday. duration 24:10 STEREO TVRE
2:00 amKQED NEWSROOM [#107H] Employees Push for Living Wage, 'Extreme by Design' and Remembering Nelson Mandela
Employees Push for Living Wage
Fast-food workers walked off the job in cities across the country and here in the Bay Area on Thursday, pushing for higher wages. As a nationwide movement to raise the minimum wage gains support from lawmakers and President Obama, critics of a wage hike say it would stifle business, kill jobs, inflate prices and hurt the very people it's intended to help.

'Extreme by Design'
The San Francisco Bay Area has long been known as an incubator of innovation. In some ways, the epicenter of that creativity is the Institute of Design at Stanford University. The "d.school" nurtures "outside the box thinking" in hopes of tackling some of the world's toughest problems. A new documentary film, "Extreme by Design," follows several Stanford graduate students as they attempt to create life-changing products for developing countries. Their approach, known as design thinking, challenges them to tackle problems like infant pneumonia deaths in Bangladesh and to build products with "extreme affordability." The film airs on KQED 9 on Wednesday, December 11 at 10 p.m.
Ralph King: Co-Director, "Extreme by Design"
Pamela Pavkov: Vice President, Jasper Ridge Partners
