Ballot Measure Could Increase San Jose's Minimum Wage 25%

A measure that will appear on the November ballot in San Jose could raise the city's minimum wage by 25 percent. With its high cost of living, San Jose also has the highest poverty rate in Santa Clara County and supporter of the measure say it will help workers by keeping the city's minimum wage from falling behind inflation. But with just one month until the election, the measure is facing strong opposition. Alex Kekauoha reports.
