San Jose Ballot Measure E Seeks to Lift Part-Time Workers
California is the hardest state for part-time workers to find full-time jobs, according to Labor Department data from 2014. Measure E on San Jose's November ballot would require local businesses with 35 or more employees to offer extra hours to part-timers before hiring more workers. Opponents say the measure will punish small businesses and kill jobs. We'll debate the proposal as part of NPR's "A Nation Engaged" project, which this week asks: “What can we do to create economic opportunity for more Americans?”
