The Bay Area is booming with jobs and technology, but cities like San Francisco are becoming unaffordable for many residents.
Yesterday, protesters blocked a Google bus filled with tech workers to bring attention to the widening income discrepancy.
At the heart of this stand-off in San Francisco is the conflict that happens when a new class of people — buoyed by economic opportunities — threaten to push out established residents. But it's not a unique story; it's one that's been retold in many cities around the country.
Ellen Huet of the San Francisco Chronicle joins the show to give us the scoop on yesterday's protest. Then, for a look at this trend and how it's transformed communities and their culture, we're joined by Jacob Avery, professor of sociology at UC Irvine.
