saying things like i don't need anything. spend it on your mom. at least that's what my dad said. i don't need anything. your mom something. i see it both ways. i think you know when, when they always come up with a list of gifts for dads. it's always electronic or things that are kind of higher up on the they want new headphones or things like that. which i would argue that moms want to moms and on mother's day the people i hear from it's either time alone , which they've earned. i have heard that it was family like it's not. i don't hear people going, man i really want. i need a bathrobe, right? i mean, i think it's like mother's day and father's day. let's yeah, let's honor the what they are giving us and what we have, even with whatever they want. three here are lucky that we come from big families. i have three siblings and one of four. you know, you guys have big families. my mom would always say. i just want you kids not to fight for a whole day. and now i'm saying that to my two boys, which is priceless. yes we'll see. however you celebrate. give your mom a big hug from us. let's
swing now to some news we've been covering really, since the leak came out more than 24 hours ago in the coming days and weeks here, demonstrations will focus on the supreme court leaked draft opinion that shows justices have the votes to overturn the landmark roe versus wade decision on abortion. large protests were held nationwide yesterday, including in new york city. people on all sides of the abortion battle rallied outside the supreme court in washington , d. c here in the bay area, oakland and san francisco. we're home to some of the biggest demonstrations in our region. that leaked draft from the supreme court has reignited the already heated debate over abortion rights across the united states. amended quintana live in our newsroom with what protesters in california and state leaders say about the possibility of the high court overturning roe v. wade once people heard about that possibility, many people took to the streets to voice their concerns. and we will fight and demand justice for every woman. across this country, no matter where she lives, and yesterday, abortion rights supporters marched through san francisco's
mission neighborhood and the castro and rallied in front of the federal building. another group took to the federal building in oakland. attendees say they're frustrated by the draft majority opinion leaked. and this is their way of telling the u. s. supreme court that they want to defend and expand roe v. wade not see it overturned. i found out about it . maybe an hour before on. instagram took the end and joined because i can't sit at home when this is happening, extremely angry at the draft decision that was released, and i'm extremely concerned for my and my daughter's future when i wanted people to know that there are california attorney general stands with them will fight with them, and i will use the full authority of the law and the full power of our office to protect the constitutional right to an abortion. governor gavin newsom will be in los angeles this morning to discuss in amendment to show the state's commitment to safeguarding reproductive freedom. meanwhile the archdiocese of san francisco has released a statement for the opposite end of the argument,
saying california's attempt to protect abortion rights will quote destroy lives, families and significantly limit the ability of the catholic church in california to protect the unborn. that statement also calls for catholics to actively and publicly opposed the amendment. nuisance event will start in just about 15 minutes. we will bring you the details on his plans as soon as that event begins live in the newsroom. amanda kintanar ktvu fox two news. alright. thanks, amanda. well. california senate president pro tem toni atkins joined members of the women's caucus and planned parenthood at the state capitol yesterday, and they vowed to move quickly to introduce a constitutional amendment to make abortion rights permanent in the state. california has long, long recognized the fundamental right to privacy and to control over one's own body. the legislative women's caucus is also introducing a bill that would help women from outside of california obtain abortions in the state. if more bands go into
place. we don't want to leave women in and in desperation and we do not want deaths, so we are going to do our best to create a welcoming and safe environment with the ability to support them. in march, governor newsom signed a bill eliminating out of pocket costs for abortions. it is part of a package of 13 total bills that are focused on making abortion more accessible and protecting providers and patients and stay with ktvu as we continue our coverage of the leaked supreme court documents. you can also find more details, including what led to this draft decision on our website at ktvu .com. what we've been hearing about warm up for a few days. now let's get to steve paulson, steve, you were saying earlier that it may not be as warm as they were saying on monday. i don't think so, because there's just too much fog back here. now there'll still be some inland temps pushing. i think some upper eighties but from no fog to very little fog at four am to a lot of fog here at nine. a.m. mean that's a big, big, big push
on the fox. the only issue is it's very shallow, so it's not going to make much of an impact unless you're along the coast or in san francisco, but it does set the stage for i think, a sea breeze later today, so we're seeing a wide variety of temps. pour in the water temps at this cold 49ers 50. from bodega bay, san francisco bowie to monterey. that's just i mean, you're just you're asking for fog to form now. napa airport is five degrees cooler than 24. hours ago. half moon bay is 11 that that makes sense. some locations running a little warmer, conquered plus to san jose, plus one palo alto's minus four santa rosa's plus to the vital minus two, so it will be cooler coast in bay. inland temps, i think will bump up a few degrees, but not that much, so i'm mainly going low to mid eighties after low eighties yesterday, but it will be sixties over by the coast and in san francisco. as i went cooler on these locations, so san francisco vallejo, oakland san mateo, yesterday sixties seventies eighties today went sixties and seventies think there's just too much fog. they're setting the stage for an afternoon sea breeze to take the edge off brentwood. probably won't have a problem getting to
around 87. maybe 88 but san francisco at 59 san carlos 59 58 nevado, santa rosa 59. i think that that that will start to cool down around two or three o'clock today, when the wind really kicks in. there are series of systems on the way, the first one there is already moving into the picture. for may. these are really deep active systems and eventually one is going to be strong enough to carve itself out over all of california by sunday into monday , so fog returns still warm inland. i think that breeze, though seabreeze shows itself later today. tomorrow we start the cooling for all big fog bang. breezy conditions, maybe some drizzle on friday or light rain well to the north. everything right now is pointing towards significant changes on the weekend with the possibility of rain on sunday. now i may not make it that far south but i think about marin county san pablo bay north that looks likely for rain on sunday and monday. and for the sierra. it's like eye popping. hello foot being forecast for homewood and kirkwood tahoe city in there as well south lake tahoe and eight inches of snow. that would be sunday night monday, maybe even
into tuesday. so big changes on the way from a today though, if you're inland, it'll be sunny and warm. if you're on the coast, it'll be cooler and tomorrow we sweep in the cooler weather and that takes as well into the weekend, probably most of next week. alright steve. thank you. a shocking statistic about home affordability here in the bay area coming up on mornings onto the nine will show you the most affordable county in the region as the gap continues to shrink. plus without the understanding, support and treatment, peri partum depression can have a devastating impact on women who would effects up next. we're talking live with the doctor about the resources available to about the resources available to new and expecting mothers. with less moderate-to-severe eczema, why hide your skin if you can help heal your skin from within? hide my skin? not me. dupixent helps keep you one step ahead of eczema, with clearer skin and less itch. don't use if you're allergic to dupixent. serious allergic reactions can occur that can be severe. tell your doctor about new or worsening eye problems such as eye pain or vision changes, including blurred vision, joint aches and pain or a parasitic infection.
don't change or stop asthma medicines without talking to your doctor. ask your doctor about dupixent. big tobacco's cigarette butts filter practically nothing and are made of microplastic fibers that are toxic and cunning. they may seep into water and food, and air, too. and the smaller microplastics get, the more damage they do. could they end up in you, your bodies, their prey? new studies indicate possible links to mutations in dna. an evil lie with a future's worth of harm. to the world, now you know. so sound the alarm.
fact, research shows one in seven women experience it, so let's talk more about this. i'm joining the conversations, dr monica kendrick, who is the director of women's health at kaiser in san francisco. good morning to you, doctor. good morning. thank you for having me . so let's explain to people you know, just really this difference. i mean, we're both talking about depression and happening to women who are pregnant and then after they give birth peri partum versus postpartum is one more severe than the other or is it just a matter of timing and when it hits them? yeah that's an excellent question. it's a matter of timing. we have expanded on the timeframe that's important to the peri partum period, which is during pregnancy and up to one year. um of the child's birth, so it's the entire time so it overlaps as well. i think there's two parts when i talk about this with people there's a part of women having to know that if they're feeling this way it's not unusual. they can get help. it's also family members looking
out and saying, if i notice something different in this person, i'm going to reach out to them and say, hey, this is not your fault. this is something that's happening. let's let's let's ask some questions with with doctors. a session. excellent 0.1 of the reasons this is such a difficult diagnosis to make is that women often feel shameful to report their symptoms or their symptoms seem normal to them because the symptoms of pregnancy or essentially the same or can be the same. and it takes that loved one or that family member to point out. um uh, point out the symptoms to them, and maybe even people have gone through, you know, pregnancy and childbirth before to say this is i know you're feeling bad. your whole body feels different. and you've got a new baby in the house. and of course you're exhausted. but you know, or or you're having a hard third trimester. but there are things that you can get help for. so i guess the question is, you know, where are we in the talk. and
where are we in resources for if someone is able to say hey, i feel this way is there enough out there to give them the help they need absolutely. you know, this is an ideal time to, uh, to identify this condition because we routinely see, um patients throughout pregnancy, postpartum and during the pediatric period. and so it throughout all of those visits. we have information online. we have informational handouts. we have , um, support groups for patients. so give me an idea of what people should be looking out for. because you know, as you mentioned, right, you're you're pregnant. you feel like your worlds kind of upside down . and even if you are multiple, you've had multiple pregnancies. everyone is different and it's can be hard to spot some of the things that are kind of off the list of typical and more on the list of concerning exactly so the symptoms of peri partum depression include as symptoms
of severe sadness, feelings of guilt, difficulty bonding with your newborn. also physical symptoms of the t v or poor sleep. and how long does that usually when you talk about one in seven? you know, i wonder if it's even more than that, because you have to identify to experience it. but when you're talking about i know, they say right when you take nine months to put on the weight, it takes nine months to take it off and give people some patients when they're trying to. figure out how to return to their new normal after you know, being pregnant and giving birth. how long until mental health recovers from what is an amazing but can be traumatic and difficult experience. yeah i think what you're talking about is something called postpartum blues, which many, many women experience immediately right after birth. the difference is that this condition is mild and temporary. peri partum depression is more severe and more persistent. and so it does take a little bit more time to
take a look at it and figure out where you go from there and how you treat yes, exactly. alright dr monica hendrick from kaiser san francisco. we have to leave the conversation there, but we appreciate you joining us this morning here on mornings onto thank you for having me important topic, all right to the covid outbreak now, which is not over yet cases continue to climb across the country. that's prompting the cdc to reiterate its guidance on masking in public. jonathan siri brings us more from atlanta. face coverings are required in the terminal. more confusion and debate over masking as the cdc reiterates its travel guidelines . the agency strongly recommends passengers over the age of to keep those face masks on while traveling on planes, trains and busses. there was a federal mandate in place for public transportation, but it was struck down by a judge last month. some travelers say whether it's required or not, they still plan to mask up until
the outbreak is over everything to do. it takes a second. it doesn't cost anything. it's a piece of fabric. but others say the cdc needs to be better about communicating its guidelines. some say they were unaware of the recommendations. it's a perfect example that we're finding out now from you that that's even the case. meanwhile there's also movement on vaccines fighter announcing it expects to submit data to the feds on doses for children by june ahead of an fda meeting on whether to give the vaccine to kids under the age of five. also in june, maduro china says it expects the first results from its clinical tests vaccine targeting macron and its variants. and if all goes well, it could be given on an annual basis similar to the flu shot. i would hope that we get to the point where the immunity will last long enough so that you only intermittently would need to be boosted. i don't see the necessity of every four months. moderna has already submitted a
request to the fda to authorize its vaccine for kids six months. to six years old in atlanta. jonathan serrie, ktvu fox two news. the san rafael city council is changing the rules on when and where people can smoke. the council updated the city code to ban smoking in any open spaces on public or private land at any time of the year. right now, the ban is in place only from may 15th until november. 1st. it is also requiring multi unit housing complexes with more than 10 units to create well marked designated smoking areas that are at least 1000 ft. from any open space or undeveloped lots. happening now san francisco teachers are protesting outside the district headquarters to highlight some of the issues with their paychecks. the teachers say they have been ongoing payroll problems since after the switch to a new payroll system, including some teachers not getting paid the right amount. the union says they want to work with the district to fix those payroll problems. earlier this
year, several teachers staged to sleep in protest at the district about their paycheck issues. a record 4.5 million people quit their jobs in march next year on the nine we're talking to an expert about the great resignation and what companies can do to in newtown. but first honoring the life and legacy of former congressman and u s. transportation secretary norman mineta. the south beach communities remembering a man so many news simply as norm.

congressman and u. s. transportation secretary norman mineta has died. he has been remembered as someone who broke ethnic barriers. he was the first asian american in many roles, including as a member of the san jose city council as mayor. and then all the way to the white house cabinet, but he's also being remembered for his humor and his human touch as much as his groundbreaking political career. i don't recall anybody saying, um mr mineta was norm norm, you know to him. ah, that was that was the way he liked it. as a child. manetta and his family were among the thousands of japanese americans that the u. s government sent to internment camps during world war two. that experience helped spark his drive to help others facing discrimination. they meet up. a big difference in, um this nation's understanding that you do not incarcerate people just because they look like the enemy. i learned enormously from

gavin newsom. to speak. he's in los angeles right now to talk about an amendment to show the state's commitment to safeguarding reproductive freedom. there's the governor right now, so let's listen in. it's just a remarkable moment. in american history. at a time when countries around the world are expanding liberties, expanding freedoms, expanding rights. here we are in the united states of america about to roll back. rights. entire history of constitution has been about the expansion right the entire history. united states been about expanding rights, not restricting rights, not rolling back rights, and this supreme court is poised to roll back constitutionally protected rights. and don't think for a second. don't think for a second. this is where they stop. and if you think it affects someone else over there. this just about you. i mean, if the right to privacy it's not foundational. they're coming after you. they are. fill in the
blank. who who is you? it's us. it's all of us. across the spectrum of issues you think for a second same sex marriage. is safe in the united states america. give me a break. you heard aniana senator. united states center, not retired. it. current senator, us senator start talking about loving versus virginia. i'm actually old enough to remember that loving decision was determined in my lifetime. blacks couldn't marry whites in the united states of america, and he actually suggested because that's un enumerated in the constitution. that that should be. on the docket for the u. s. supreme court. just think about that for a second. and you don't have to think that far back. i'll never forget you look at the lower court decision and loving case. i'll never forget the decision. the judge when sentencing richard loving to
prison, said god, sir. gotten never wanted the racist to mix because god put different races on different continents, he said. for a reason. that was the judges. decision. how far removed are we from that kind of thinking today with this current supreme court? i'm serious. how far away how far removed are we from that kind of thinking with this current majority on the u. s supreme court, but it's not just the supreme court. just think about what president trump did. during its just four years as president, 231 federal judges 84% 84% white. 76% male. young federal judges 54 of them on the appellate court. this is not just about the three on the u. s. supreme court pay attention, america they're coming after you next. that's not hyperbole. it is not hyperbole. watch this
space if privacy is not constitutionally protected. this opens up panoply. of issues. so this is a profound moment. and yes, we're not going to be defeated. certainly not here in the state of california. in fact , we are going further. and while it's well established in statutes and 2002. that we are reproductive freedom state. we are going to enshrine that codify that as we should in the state constitution, and i want to just applaud the leadership in the assembly and the senate. toni atkins, anthony rendon. for not only supporting that effort , but embracing it in partnership with planned parenthood and its affiliates, and we'll be presenting that to the voters this november. as an affirmative step to codify california's leadership. i want to remind folks where are they, not just the richest state. fifth largest economy in the
world $3.36 trillion economy. were the most populous state. and the most diverse state. in the world's most diverse democracy and we punch above our weight. this is not a small, isolated state, california. this is a state where we estimate 8.6 million. california residents. of reproductive age. 8.6 million. that's more than dozens of states combined. the consequences of what do we do here is profound and pronounced. and nor are we naive what to expect. not just with the dozen or so states that have these trigger laws in the likelihood anywhere from 25 26 or so states the majority of states in america. may roll back. these freedoms are protected and criminalize doctors. criminalized caregivers criminalized women. but we recognize. california's unique
status to stand above that and stand tall and stand out and our responsibility. we've always felt it. our responsibilities to others. not just to the few 40 million proud californians, but others and so we'll have to do more. we'll have to do better, and we've been doing that we've not sat back passively. we've been anticipating. sadly. we've been anticipating this. pecked we just sat down. i said, we had a meeting. i think it was six or seven months ago. we laid this out and not one. every single thing that's happened has happened. i guess we just didn't know it was a leader. we knew it was. it was part of it. so we've been preparing we've been doing more so we can do better. protect the health. check the safety. of women and girls, particularly those of color and let's just disabused ourselves.
at all those men up there and fancy suits and all their wealth and status and privilege that this is going to have a profound impact on their lives. because their loved ones their family members can get on southwest or jetblue. and come with one of those blue states. but how about those folks that can't even afford a greyhound bus ticket? how about all of those women and girls raped? in states where they don't even make an exception for rape. talk about extremists. rape and incest. that's how extreme the republican party is in the united states of america. you want extremism? rape and incest. they don't even make an exception. how many young women and girls maybe someone you know or love. finds out. six weeks and a day later, 15 weeks and a day later that they're pregnant.
they don't have the ability. money to come to another state. it's not about strengthening the family end on this. i also find it just the height of perversity and absurdity that these folks a like claim to freedom. but perhaps more in city seriously suggest that they're pro life. when every single one of these folks that are out there, trumpeting and championing this decision have consistently opposed prenatal care support. consistently opposed childcare consistently opposed paid family leave consistently opposed all things to actually strengthen the family and provide the support. for someone to live their lives out loud to support
working moms consistently the one group of people that over and over and over again opposed all of those supports, and they claim to be pro life. their pro birth. that's all this is about. it's the pro birth party. and then you are on your own. consistently opposing all of those supports ###, they don't even believe in climate science. talk to me about being pro life. spare me your body your choice. it's a #### of a moment to live in. like you say we will not be defeated. we will stand tall, we will stand firm. and we will affirm the constitutional currently constitutionally protected rights of women and girls, the reproductive rights and freedoms in california. and we will assert ourselves as i said, as californians by punching above our weight, working with other like minded leaders and governors. and
legislatures all across this country. and we're not going to roll over. we will not back down. and when we continue to fill in the gaps and address the disparities that continue to persist, even in a state like ours, even in california, even in california. women and girls still have to travel long distances. to access their reproductive rights, even in california. even in california. we're changing it. you still have women girls that can't afford the copays. for procedures and care. that will change in january, even in california, can you imagine? how so many others are suffering and all these other states so this is a powerful moment. ah! personally for young kids. i'd explain to my kids i can. i had some other friends of mine said i had a hard conversation because the first conversation very young kids about what row
is. what privacy is. choice those are hard conversations with young kids. but their conversations were all having that we pray we never would have to have because we thought we live in a country. it was expanding freedoms and choice. and providing the sanctity not only of those decisions to be advanced in privacy, but also protecting people's right to privacy is a foundational principle. in our democracy and republic, so i'm grateful for all the incredible work of planned parent and all its 108. affiliates in the state of california. of our legislature. proud of our legislative leadership. we look forward to going front of the voters affirming this constitutional right? in our state in the constitution, not just statute because we now recognize the vulnerability. of the moment we're living in and
continue to work with others all across this country and continue our efforts to call out the hypocrisy. that we see across this nation. right? i it's no and i and i think it's the right question. it's a hard one for me because this is so much more pronounced and profound and just sort of an electoral frame. elections do have consequences, and we saw that with with donald trump. as a shift of graham. putting my political hat. i hope so. all right. you've been listening to governor gavin newsom as he speaks in los angeles. he is obviously emotional. he was a very passionate speaking about this draft decision that was leaked from the supreme court. and roe v. wade. he made a couple of points talking about how
california is a large state, and they talked about punching above its weight and really setting an example but also trying to expand that out to say it is not just rovi weighed. it is other decisions that come from this. if the fundamentals of what they're arguing in supreme court , and so we brought up same sex marriage and interracial marriage and said over and over again, this is about you. and it's even if this issue in particular you're saying to yourself, i'm not sure it's every other issue that follows. so certainly they're talking about the amendments to the constitution state constitution that he's talking about, and the many bills that are going forward heard, the governor said that elections have consequences . so let's talk about the upcoming midterm elections now, as many lawmakers and activists are looking ahead to the upcoming midterms with renewed intensity. following that leaked draft decision on abortion. for more insight, we turn to san francisco state political science professor jason the most polarizing andank you
absolutelyrning, possibly of te constitutional right spin enshrined in the constitution for over 50 years is incredibly momentous. so absolutely. this is one of the issues that can change the course of american politics. we heard governor gavin newsom speak a moment ago. he's also just released and add this morning on abortion rights . if republicans capture control of congress in the midterms, as many expect them to conservative activists are pushing a nationwide ban on abortion. in your opinion, will this leak get more democrats or republicans to the polls? unfortunately you know, i think the current environment strongly favors republicans take control of the house and, most likely the senate as well. president biden's approval ratings are relatively low in the low forties. inflation is a huge concern that impacts you know, millions of americans. don't expect this issue to change that . but it does give democrats an opportunity. to change the narrative to change this election from perhaps a referendum on by number
democratic agenda to do more about the potential extremism of the republican party passing laws such as you mentioned that most americans do not favor over 50% of americans favor the sort of current position on abortion and abortion rights. and so it does give democrats an opportunity. perhaps treat that narrative i think back to the presidential election of donald trump and right before election day, polls were favoring hillary clinton. do you think that democrats, perhaps in the assistance took away anything from that feeling of we got this. we're good. but the next morning that's not the case. i think after several years of trump, and after those polls that you mentioned democrats are very careful to think that they're gonna be able to be favored in elections. given the current current polling right now, polling does favor republicans, especially nationwide, but also in many states, especially for instance , in senate races in georgia, arizona, nevada, pennsylvania. a lot of the polls are favoring republican candidates there. i don't think that the democrats are taking this lightly. they
know the position they're in. i think a lot of them are going to be pushing the party to embrace this issue because this issue is it matters so much to democrats the core part of the democratic coalition and pushing the president to embrace this issue and to make changes on this issue, potentially in the filibuster up for this issue to be able to pass a nat unfortunately, i don't think that's going to have much effect on the midterm election. we just heard gavin newsom governor gavin newsom reference former president donald trump in his time in office in the white house that yielded three conservative justices. presidential elections draw the most voter turnout. what are the most important races you're watching now leading up to the midterms? for me. it's all about control the senate i think it's unlikely the democrats will maintain control the house and i'm looking incident races in arizona. i'm looking into the races in pennsylvania, nevada. um democrats are defending three of those they have candidates that did well previously, but they're all right now. printing in the sort of mid forties,
maybe low forties around 50. they have an opportunity to win those races. there's no doubt about that. i don't think that we should be expecting a 2010 level wave election in favor of republicans in the senate. but those are the elections i'm looking for right now. it could be, you know, if democrats run the table on those four bases, they could maintain control of the senate, maybe even increase their margin by one seat. but i do think that's unlikely. i do think this is shaping up to be a kind of election, with the environment and less inflation improves unless binds approval rating is approved that we could see a very bad election for democrats akin to 2010, as you say, and in that case, it's unlikely that biden will be able to get any movie future supreme court justices. i think we're seeing a conservative supreme court blocked in for 2030 more years. of course, the outlook you just presented could be more fuel for the democrats. fire will have to watch as it plays out. we appreciate your joining us station jason mcdaniel, political science professor at san francisco state. take it and we do hope you stay with ktvu

work force, quit their jobs in march with us now is john waldman, who is ceo of the san francisco based company home base. john. thank you for joining us. what is it about this pandemic that started people thinking about leaving their jobs and looking for something they like better. i think thanks for having me here at home base. we serve over 100,000 local businesses, including hundreds in oakland and the east bay. and so we have a pretty good pulse on what's going on in in small businesses as well as in the hourly workforce. and what you just saw . there was some really profound impacts that are happening. there were a record number of job quits in the last month. at the same time here at home base . we have seen a record number of job openings, uh, job postings, applicants, so we have two combined impacts that are leaving a lot of businesses, short staffed and struggling to hire so, john. okay so because of the pandemic, i think a lot of people were thinking about
it. tell me now that this job market favors workers. how much is that being reflected in the wages and benefits that are being offered to workers. we have seen a pretty significant year over year increase in what businesses are offering to workers to start work. it's gone up over 20% and so absolutely. pay is a big part of what's going on right now. but the other thing we did was we surveyed thousands of hourly workers and asked them what's most important to you right now, and pay was not the most important. the most important variable. actually what it came down to. the most important thing was company leadership. and then when you look at kind of three through 10, it was all around the work experience was around the people that they were working with flexibility that kind of control. they have over the times that they are working. all of those things are incredibly important. so as you think about what it takes to attract and retain workers, it's not just about the pay. it's
also about that work experience. how about the flexibility to work from home versus having to go into the office? i know a lot of people after they got used to working from home, and then they may have had a job where they said, you know, you have to come back, and then they say, okay, i'm out. i'm going to find a job or i can work from home. how much of that is going on? yeah certainly. that's part of it. i mean, even us as a company. we're dealing with that with our team here in the bay area, but i think there's something really important here to remember, which is for two thirds of workers and jobs in this country. work from home is not an option will never be an option. and so for those workers and those jobs, flexibility means something different. it means flexibility around wages. can i get paid more than twice a week? it means flexibility around the shifts that they're working. ah do they have control over what days they're working and the ability to trade those shifts. and so it's really important for all businesses to think about flexibility and a more holistic way. well, john,
we only have a little time left so quick answer if he could hear, will this balance of the employees essentially having all the leverage continue or will it balance out? you know a lot smarter people than me trying to answer this question. but i will say that there's so many dynamics at play from these last couple of years, we have been through an absolutely catastrophic impact on small businesses on workers, and there's a lot of this that we're still working through. uh one of those big variables that play is there's still a lot of workers that are not working that are on the sidelines and if those workers start to come back into the workforce that could change a lot of these dynamics. pretty quickly. ah and that that's what we should all be hopeful for is that we continue to have a lot of employers out there that are hungry. want to grow or hiring? want to serve their communities and more workers coming in to help them? john waldman is a ceo of san francisco based home based thank you for joining us, john thanks for having me. coming up here on mornings onto
