trees there is about dropbox. >> that, alex says, is what it's all i got . >> there is this energy of like how david selection is. >> it's anyone's guess whether 2022 will bring a blue wave or a red wave . alex just hopes it's overflowing with gen z voters. kpix 5 reporting. >> regardless of how goes we've got you covered on election night. national races and results on kpix 5, local races on kbcw and streaming on cbs news bay area eared our coverage begins tuesday at 5:00. still ahead, the 49ers, getting some r&r. how the players are using their time off. plus no driver behind the wheel, yeah, it's a thing that we will take you on a ride. you want to have a new experience and try something before everyone else? >> is a safe, though? we will check out these taxis with no drivers.

overall jobs picture going with that. let's drill down a little bit. joining me live now is michael bernick . first of all, let's start with the tech layoffs and hiring freezes we are hearing about at some major companies. what does that spell out for a very tech based future? >> well even in good times, reed, this is a highly volatile industry , tech, and we've had layoffs. the layoffs we have seen in the last couple weeks, not only at twitter, but also at strike and lyft, and slowdowns at google, do show a greater slowdown in the industry. but i think the important thing this morning is, if you look at the national numbers, the national numbers and the california numbers, the economy does remain strong. so we gained over 260,000 jobs, nationwide , just in the past month, and unemployment went up slightly from 2.5% to 3.7%. but by historic measures it's
very low. >> we talked about that job growth , but where does that leave us going into next year? >> we are certainly not seeing a drop, dramatic drop in employment. we are seeing a slowdown in terms of the pace of job growth , 261,000 jobs is below the numbers that we have been averaging over the previous 12 months, so we will see a slowdown. both nationwide and here in california. but the economy is going to drop out. i would say with the tech industry we will be seeing layoffs, but this is still a highly resilient industry, and one that's gone through a lot of volatility beforehand. >> we thank you for joining us today during this broadcast, with your thoughts on our neighbors and those who have lost their jobs. michael, thank you. speaking of jobs, driverless cars are going around at night. our shawn
chitnis asked if this is technology that should be going forward so quickly. >> they are hard to miss even at night , this fleet of electric vehicles, make up for the quiet sound with a loud look all around. a ride may start like any other service you can call up on an app. >> please keep your seatbelt buckled. >> but once inside you can quickly see how this will be unlike any other. >> be sure to keep your hands and arms in the car. >> that's part of the appeal for this san francisco resident who works in tech and does not have a car. >> you want to try something new before everybody else and have a new experience. >> he uses uber and public transit to get around. now he feels like he has one more option. >> i was really excited [ laughter ] was parked at the red light, it waited for the green light, it came over here, parked at the right place in front of me and no one was
driving it. >> he has used crews several times at night, but others are limited from 10:00 p.m.-6:00 a.m. in san francisco. in this area you can request a ride. >> we picked the hardest city for a reason, because if we can do it here, we can do it anywhere. >> the company says it's covered more than 4 million miles since starting operations , that includes 400,000 miles with public riders. >> i've been driving here in san francisco since 1983. >> some who share the roads i'm not sure the technology is enough to keep things safe. >> you have to start saying i removing too fast? >> marquez with the san francisco taxi workers alliance. he has watched his industry evolve and take on one new challenge after another. as he sees multiple companies
moving forward with driverless cars he thinks regulators should require more testing. >> they are able to teach the vehicles something new and different, far different than a human driver. >> the fire department of san francisco has reported one incident where a cruise card on the way while of its engine trucks responded to a call. other local agencies pointed to 911 calls complaining about crews vehicles driving erratically or blocking travel lanes. >> ev's are never driving distracted, the drivers are not there, so they are not drunk. >> you are looking at the wheel moving. you are looking outside to make sure that it has all the things you're supposed to see. >> nicholas remembers his hesitation at first. he plans to keep using crews when late at night. >> nothing has happened to me, so it's safe. >> safe to some and under
tested technology to others, trying to win over more riders one trip at a time. shawn chitnis, kpix 5. the 49'ers are on a bye week. how are they enjoying the time off? here is vern glenn with some answers. expect time for your red and gold report. >> some time off and a nice break from football. so how are they spending that time off? our charlie walker asked them. >> i'm just going to be chilling with my girl, having some extra time with her. what does chilling involve at this stage well, i will probably go out to san francisco, maybe catch a warriors game or something if they play at home. >> i'm going to see my family in indiana and spend time with them. my niece just got full scholarship for softball, so i'm using this opportunity to
spend time with them before i come back in. >> my son is getting ready for playoff action down in texas, so i'm excited to go back there and spend some good quality time with the family. >> just chilling here, trying to separate a little bit from all but not too much . stay active, and just recuperate. >> with the red and gold report, i am vern glenn. >> vern, thank you so much. our sports team has you covered on all things 49ers. watch the red and gold report tonight here on kpix 5 and streaming on cbs news bay area. time for a look at the forecast with chief meteorologist, paul heggen. should i brace for rain this weekend? >> you should, but we welcome it with open arms. it may not be ideal timing this weekend, but we need the break. it will be a light wave of rain, a weak cold front passing through. a gerougst of the day dry , sund
before stronger storm system brings in rain and gusty winds by sunday night into monday. let's take a look at futurecast as we make our way to the weekend. futurecast trying to squeeze out some rain towards midday, but the actual shower activity is going to be moving into the northbay around lunchtime, dropping north to south, towards the golden gate i made late afternoon and progressing further south, into the santa clara valley and across the east bay as we head into the evening and overnight hours. now, this is all going to shut down by about midnight, tomorrow night. and then we get that dry break for most of the day on sunday. that's good news for the golden gate half marathon. sunday plans are looking good at this point. we will keep you updated, but there is that more substantial area of rain dropping down towards us, and it will be here by sunday night into monday. so let's add up the rain through the middle of next week. we are talking about a substantial amount for this time of year, anywhere from three quarters of an inch
to potentially 1 1/2 inches. these numbers will undoubtedly change, no model has a perfect snapshot of what's going to happen, but it's a nice round of arrangement which is exactly what we need. and it's exactly what they need in the high sierra, anywhere from 2-4 feet of snow over the next few days. keep that in mind for travel plans if you will be on i-80 or on u.s. 50. oakland is the cool spot at 59 degrees, everybody else in the low to mid 60s. we'll drop down to the upper 40s and 50s overnight. weather the past several nights, because we are going to have that blanket of clouds, maybe not a solid blanket, a few holes here and there, but enough to keep the warmth near ground level, at least some warmth. temperatures are going to warm up to the low to mid 60s. still about a 3-5 degrees cooler, but then the rain will settle down. around the south end of the bay commitment 60s for most, and the santa
clara valley . temperatures in linden east bay reaching up to the low to mid 60s, before that rain arrives, likely by late afternoon for this part of the bay area. earlier near the golden gate and for the northbay, your temperatures don't have as much time to warm up. low to mid 60s around the bay. temperatures further north also limited to around 60 at best for those highs tomorrow, before the rain rolls in. again, most of sunday looks dry. rain chances move back in sunday evening and sunday night, and there is a rainy pattern monday and tuesday. i going to be an all-day washout , then a break in the action wednesday and thursday before another chance of showers heads our way on friday. a lot of questions about that. long-range models says it's a good chance of rain, others keep us dry. reed? >> thank you. if powerball fever was not enough already, ahead, the news
