>> a new bill making its way through the california state legislature calls for an end to the classic five-day workweek. changing the definition of a workweek from 40 hours too. 32 hours, this law would only apply to companies with more than 500 employees and still a lot of questions about this. >> joining us now, one of the authors of the bill san jose assembly member evan low high oven. i think this is the kind of thing people will love you workers. well, if you call it off, if it passes, maybe employers not so much in a nutshell. how would it work >> well, happy friday to you both. if this bill wants to place, it would be happy thursday. look, we all recognize the importance of providing as much flexibility for the worker, especially as we come out of the covid pandemic, recognizing that there's the great resignation. how do we ensure that we provide an opportunity for individuals, workers to help
ensure that they're providing for their families, that they address mental health issues and they just have additional flexibility to live life. and that's what this conversation is about. >> i mean, it sounds great, right? if if you're a worker, i have to work. one fewer day a right? most people are all in. but is this thing actually likely to pass anecdotally or otherwise? what are people saying? we're actually going to decide this. >> well, we know that california is always on the forefront on many issues and as much as i'd like to suggest that this is earth shattering, this is not a new concept nor new idea. in fact, we have many companies here in the bay area could transition to a four-day workweek to do exactly that, provide that much more flexibility for the workers. it's seen an increase in productivity as well as the impacts to helping to instill that type of environment for the workplace. and we know right now that workers are
demanding and looking for the leverage of they have for an this is the approach that we're looking to do to help ensure that we're creating an environment in that regard. so this is the first step as we've introduced this legislation based upon a number of companies that have already done this and implemented this in practice. >> evan, you know that opponents are arguing it would be bad for things like a sales and service job growth. the upside, i guess it's fairly obvious. but what are you telling critics? >> but what's important is that we help to recognize, well, why do we have great resignation? what do younger workers look for to help provide for their families? we also recognize that during this covid pandemic that much was possible due to technology and remote working. so how do we ensure that not only do we have the opportunity for individuals to? focused on their work at hand, but also having the type balance as
well, especially as it relates to the type of things that workers are demanding. it is flexibility, flexibility, franks ability. >> all right. other states considering a similar piece of legislation and is there a national push? >> there is thank you very much for for asking that there's a federal proposal at the national level congress on four-day submitted by congressman mark takano. this is at the state level. and to my knowledge, this would be the first and the state to be able to do this. and so as we continue on this trajectory to recognize the importance of providing flexibility, i welcome as much feedback as possible to allow off for the dialogue and conversation, which is to say, how do we ensure that we provide greater flexibility that we empower the worker as well as helping to ensure that we can get the job done and more efficiently as well. >> clarify something for us quickly. just some people are
understand this. could they work fewer hours but still be paid the same or is that understood that be losing money? >> no, this is the same salary. it's in compensation. but under a 32 hour framework, we, of course, need to work out. the distinction between that of soured and now early, the current bill also applies to companies with 500 or more employees. so we recognize the impact, a small business. this is in its inception. this is the proposal in its beginning stages. and as it moves the process, we, of course, will heal or hear from a number of different stakeholders as it relates to the type of support and also the accommodations on what makes most sense because we know that big businesses versus small businesses. we need to make sure that we recognize the impact, a small business as well. >> evan low, good luck. yeah. assemblyman from san jose. it's a fascinating idea and certainly one that i think a lot of people are interested
in in learning about and hearing where this goes. >> have a great weekend. thank you. thanks. 7. alright, weather time as we get a peek at the skies here. this is the bay bridge toll plaza. quite a jam up there that were buddies go in that the giants play in san francisco. so it's not that. >> yeah, we're then going. there's always a bunch of stuff going on. i guess he is the cooling down. cooling down. got a nice day, right? i mean, instead of those real hot 90's, we had a couple places. >> pop the low 90's. but what a change from just yesterday. sea breeze kicking in and that changes everything with those winds roll off those cool ocean waters and start to move on shore. that really brings the temperature down. actually have some fog along the coastline early on this morning, but not long and it was long gone after that. lots of sunshine in the bay. now looking good temperatures today. yes. so those hot around san francisco, that's pretty hot for san francisco. we cool back down to the 70's that's more comfortable for this time of year. 70 degrees
in san francisco. 72 also in oakland, 84 in san jose. hot 90 in livermore. 88 in concord, 89 degrees in santa rosa. so you can see where the cool air is really moved in along the coastline. of course, the mid-fifties in half moon bay and pacific about now affecting san francisco at 61. 63 now in oakland, warm places, a shelter from some of that on shore breeze. still, 81 degrees in concord in 82 in santa rosa. cold front coming to town here. it is moving through the bay area. now, unfortunately fallen apart. i'm not leaving us any rain but really drastically changing our weather as we head into the weekend, we've already seen those temperatures cooling down in the winds have really started to pick up. but we've seen some 20 some 30 mile an hour gusts near the coastline today in the san francisco. but the winds behind that are really going to start to whip, i think some blustery conditions, high pressure trying to sneak in behind that front. all of a sudden gets within winds across many of the north bay mountains, east bay hills to and red flag warnings going up and county. so expect a lot of winds this
weekend but should stay dry. not for long, though. we've got a chance of rain coming up, we'll talk more about that in a few minutes. thanks, lauren. san jose's mayor says his city is still safe. >> but a recent uptick in violent crime there is leading to a few changes. kron four's dan kerman has more on the mayor's new three-point plan. >> as they continue to be a very safe city, relatively speaking, louis homicide rate of any major city in the country. but we have seen rising violent crime the last couple of years at a news conference friday, san jose mayor sam liccardo announced a 3 point plan to deal with an ever-increasing rise in violence. >> the proposal begins with stopping what he calls the revolving door at the county jail for serious and violent felons. and that involves advocacy around bell schedules involves ensuring that are sent. a police department is doing all they can to present. >> strong affidavit, we have serious or violent felons. we're facing arraignment. the car to says roughly half of the detainees released pre trial. all right. they're failing to arrive for their court date or committing
another crime. >> says a police department looked at data over a 14 month period identified 30 or estes who had been arrested at minimum of 10 times over that period of 14 months. >> the proposal also calls for expanding drug treatment for addicted or stds. >> since methamphetamine, that is driving enormous amount of harm our communities. disconcertingly violence in communities because of course it is a stimulant and has both acute and long-term effects that seems to be criminal >> carter says he's working with the county to apply for state money to create housing facilities with on-site drug treatment. >> we want to ensure that more options for judges. and we also want to address the addiction. challenges of these arrests tease because we know it's bad for them and it's bad for a community that they remain addicted. >> the 3rd part of the proposal calls for getting more cameras out to small businesses to reduce the number of thefts and burglaries in the weeks ahead.
