    Interesting article, thanks Michele

    The Rise of the Progressive City by Michelle Goldberg
    (Michelle Goldberg is a senior contributing writer at The Nation)
    Yet even as San Francisco exemplifies the social stratification of the postindustrial economy, it is also, more quietly, pioneering a new social safety net. Since 1996, the city has enacted some of the country’s most comprehensive laws on wages, benefits, paid sick leave and healthcare access. Michael Reich, the director of the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment at the University of California, Berkeley, and Ken Jacobs, chair of the UC Berkeley Labor Center, write that these measures, taken together, “represent a new social compact among businesses, workers, and government.”

    Along with Miranda Dietz, Reich and Jacobs are the editors of the new book When Mandates Work: Raising Labor Standards at the Local Level, a careful, scholarly look at San Francisco’s largely unheralded policy experiment, which picked up steam a decade ago. In 2003, a ballot initiative made San Francisco the country’s first major city to enact its own minimum wage law, initially set at $8.50 an hour. (Tied to the Bay Area Consumer Price Index, it climbed to $10.55 by 2013.) Two years later, San Francisco instituted a Working Families Credit to supplement the Earned Income Tax Credit. The year after that, it became the first US city to require employers to provide paid sick leave. And it passed the groundbreaking San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance, which mandated minimum health spending requirements for businesses with twenty or more workers and created Healthy San Francisco, which provides comprehensive healthcare to uninsured city residents. “Although this public option is not formally considered insurance,” Reich and Jacobs note in their book, “it is tantamount to a generous public insurance policy, with the significant caveat that it is restricted to a network of providers located only within San Francisco.” http://www.alternet.org/rise-progressive-city

    @Caller, what is your take on the info in this article above ? Do you have any experience with the things discussed that you would be willing to share with us ? Doesn’t have to be your experience personally, but anyone you know, or from hearing conversations of people who live in your area.

    I like to hear what’s going on out in the world straight from the “horse’s mouth”, as it were. That’s one of the reasons I so value the Realm. I get to hear real life situations from real people. Not the regular media propaganda hype which usually just gives me a headache.

    Thanks in advance for anything that you are willing to share.

    I’ve been laying out the images and placement of pets on my chest of drawers. I’ve decided to put the chest on casters, instead of adding legs, which will make i more portable.

      Hillary Clinton ?
      I would vote for her any day considering all the right wingers out there who wants to be the President.
      But she might not even run. Lets see…..

    Hmm … if only UCSB has enough clout and is able to follow through. Divestiture sounds like a good idea. Cities are doing it. http://www.thenation.com/article/180021/how-uc-santa-barbara-can-turn-grief-action-divest-gun-manufacturers

    I see Hillary Clinton is a moderate, and fiercely pro-Choice, who will make excellent Supreme Court appointments. Hillary is the only viable woman in today’s landscape with a chance to win the presidency. I want to live to see the First Woman president.

    • I agree with all you said and when she is POTUS she will have my full support, but I am no longer a virgin (ideological) and after Obama I will never again have stardust in my eyes.

      I think she will deal sternly with republicans and may surprise even a jaded jackhole like me.

        I like her generally, but she’s too much a corporatist for me, like you I’ve been burned too many times…
