For the last few years, the statehouse has been the center of the debate over raising the minimum wage. But as this week's events make clear, that's changed.
On this episode of our California Politics Podcast, we discuss efforts to raise the minimum wage in various parts of the Golden State and how they may change the debate still raging in Sacramento.
We also discuss Gov. Jerry Brown's big week at the Vatican, and a proposed 2016 ballot initiative that could reshape the familiar fight over property taxes and programs to help the poor.
I'm joined by Anthony York of the Grizzly Bear Project, with KQED News' Marisa Lagos on vacation.
