ordinance that would raise the city's minimum wage to $15 in two years. it would also increase to $13.75 by next year. this is a compromise between two dueling measures all on the november ballot. one ballot measure called measure bb wouldn't raise the minimum wage to $15 until 2019. the other which is measure cc would raise it to $15 by next year. berkeley's minimum wage is still below what workers get in emeryville and oakland. san francisco's is set to increase to $15 in 2018. >> we all feel for working people because it's hard in our expensive city to survive unless you have a decent wage. >> the berkeley city council just announced it will vote at this surprise meeting during their summer recess yesterday. if this proposed ordinance passes today the city will have voters to reject bb and cc on the november ballot. lisa chan, kpix 5. a driver caused a big mess
6:01 am
in san francisco this morning. he slammed into a muni bus shelter. this happened around 3:00 near stockton and sacramento in chinatown. police say most of the damage was on the sidewalk but there was a lot of glass and debris. the driver was not seriously hurt. no word yet on what caused him to crash. there is a crisis with the staffing at the san jose police department. kpix 5 uncovered it's so bad officers are sleeping in rvs to make it to mandatory overtime shifts. kpix 5's maria medina is live outside the san jose police department to tell us what city leaders said when we brought in to their attention. >> reporter: some of them actually had no idea. it was our kpix 5's kiet do who broke the story. he discovered at least a dozen police officers sleeping in r rvs. they are working 17 hour shifts many of them live as far away
6:02 am
as reno. so they say their only solution is to sleep here so they can make their shifts. voters passed measure b in 2012 that cut salary and benefits and that led to a mass exodus of police officers. today these officers are working overtime because of that. our mayor had no idea that these officers were sleeping in rvs. kiet do brought it to his attention. and he says there is a solution. >> we need to get support for measure f so we can restore this police department so we don't have officers working multiple overtime shifts in the same day. >> reporter: measure f would essentially, uhm, increase pay for new hires and that would attract new recruits according to the mayor. that measure will be on the november ballot. if you are wondering if it's legal for these officers to be sleeping in these rv's, they are doing it on city property so it's legal. we also spoke to the union president.

6:31 am
they say they have no other choice. >> reporter: yeah. michelle, you know, it was our kiet do who wondered why there were r vs parked outside the san jose police department. that's when he discovered a dozen officers sleeping in campers because of mandatory overtime. they are working 17 hour shifts and many of them live as far as reno because they can't afford to live here in the bay area so they say their only solution is to sleep in those campers. now, if you remember, it was back in 2012 that voters approved measure b. that cut benefits and pay of those officers. and now there is a staffing problem here and the only solution is to work overtime. now, the mayor had no idea that these officers were sleeping in campers. kiet do brought it to his attention. and he says there is a solution. >> we're not going to retain and recruit officers. we're going to keep on sleeping
6:32 am
in a parking lot until we can get measure f across the line and certain negotiations to get over the line, as well. >> now, measure f would boost salaries for new officers and he says would then attract new recruits. that measure will be on the november ballot. now, if you are wondering if this is legal, if it is okay for officers to be sleeping in these rv's, it is on city property so it is okay. now, we also spoke to the union president. he says he knew this was going on but he was hesitant to say anything because of officer safety. live at sjpd, maria medina, kpix 5. >> you mentioned measure f will increase pay for new officers. what else can you tell us about that measure? >> under measure f former san jose employees would actually get the same benefits that they got before measure b if they want to return to work for the city and about 1300 employees are eligible. back to you. >> thank you. police trying to figure out

6:34 am
get their say at the polls. lisa chan on the push to clear up the confusion ahead of the november election. but this seems more confusing. >> reporter: it is a little confusing. this special meeting during the berkeley summer recess was just announced yesterday. it will be voting on a new ordinance to raise the city's minimum wage to $15 in two years. it would also increase to $13.75 by next year. up to $15 by 2018. this is a compromise between two dueling measures on the november ballot. measure bb wouldn't raise the minimum wage to $15 until 2019 while measure cc is more aggressive raising it to $15 by next year. the ballot measures have divided the city council as well as labor leaders and small business owners. in daly city, one business owner told us he and his wife can't afford employees at all. >> in order to have employees today, you have to have workers' compensation insurance, you have to have all
6:35 am
kinds of other things that add to the price of whatever you pay the employee. >> which is why some say there needs to be a state law. in march, governor jerry brown announced a deal that would bring the statewide minimum wage to $15 by 2022. the ordinance the berkeley city council will be voting on this morning is considered a compromise between the two measures bb and cc. if it passes, voters are asked to reject both measures in november. live in the newsroom, lisa chan, kpix 5. it is 6:35 right now. before we listen to weather, roberta, we have to remind everybody to go online and weigh in on the 49ers this year who is it degree. >> >> the shoulder injury prevented kaepernick from the first game against the houston texans so the big vote is on. i think they decided they are leaning towards kaep for tonight but we want to hear what you have to say. >> if you are a raider fan you
6:36 am
don't have this debate. it's derek carr all the way. >> you could be a football fan and weigh in. >> i voted. again, it's vote. we'll have the result coming up before 7:00. >> do you really want to see this again? if you do then vote for kaep. right? >> what's wrong two that? >> i just say the if you want to, go for it. [ laughter ] >> is that all you got? we'll see tonight, right? >> hopefully his arm is better. let's just say his arm needs some rest and hopefully it gets better. >> shoulder. >> yeah. roberta has been trying to get our weather forecast in gear morning. >> we have a great 49er forecast. just go with her. just go with her right now. [ laughter ] >> 49er game time temperature 67 degrees falling to the low 60s for the 49ers tonight. are you going to scold me later? [ laughter ] >> this is yerba buena island and treasure island. we have a layer of low clouds and fog. heavy drizzle, as well.
6:37 am
that's going to affect our temperatures today. they are coming down due to an upper level trough that enhanced that marine layer. 60s and no clearing at the beaches today. 70s around the peninsula. up to 81 degrees in morgan hill. 83 in the gilroy area. you notice the closer we get to the lip of the bay the temperatures drop into the 70s around union city, newark and fremont. but the farther inland you go, the temperatures rise. 84 degrees will be our outside number in brentwood. tri-valley in the low 80s. typically you should be 90. and to the north, take your pick, you want 70s? head to the coast. 70s common around santa rosa into kentfield, sausalito and tiburon. 70s in sonoma and napa. 60s at the coast. the weekend forecast something you really need to know about that and the event the weather will affect. that's coming up. but rocky, who is your pick for
6:38 am
tonight? >> oh, i don't know. i have to get more acquainted with our 49ers. but good weather for the game? >> oh, great. >> i'm assuming bad traffic into the game. so keep that in mind. let's take a look at some updates right now. ashby avenue off westbound 80 that was shut down earlier because of a grass fire. it's now open. so that's good for eastshore freeway commuters. and also there's a new crash here in pittsburg westbound 4 at willow pass road a two-car crash there causing some delays. cars driving all the way down to 20 miles per hour. and then also southbound 880 in oakland at 16th avenue there's a big rig and truck on the shoulder now but still cauing some minor delays. nimitz looking bad in the commute direction but 238 to 80 northbound will take 20 minutes. the golden gate toll plaza could be a thing of the past. something is being tested out
6:39 am
as a replacement for the plaza. since tolltakers were eliminated in 2013, the toll area isn't really needed. the gantt try would have lasers and other equipment to take the tolls. if all goes well it could disappear from the golden gate bridge in just a few years. the golden gate bridge is launching crisis text line to reach out to anyone who is thinking of jumping off the bridge. officials say the number of young people showing up at the bridge is at an all-time high. anyone can reach the new texting line at 741741. san francisco police released new video of a violent robbery. they are hoping to generate some leads into this case. the video from august 2, the taxi driver is blurred but you can see one of the suspects sit there is in the front seat. police say the driver picked up the group of four people at market and mason at 4:30 a.m. those suspects then asked the driver to take them to the
6:40 am
bayview. when they arrived, police say one suspect used a stun gun to attack the driver. that driver had his wallet and credit cards stolen but he was not seriously hurt. search-and-rescue crews continue to dig through the rubble in italy looking for any survivors from a deadly earthquake. we now know at least 267 people have died and hundreds of others are hurt. drone video shows the destruction of one of the hardest hit towns amatrice. as you can see many of the buildings are completely gone. time now 6:40. nearly 7 million californians may soon be automatically enrolled in retirement savings plans. the plan straight ahead. >> and tourists looking for peace and quiet at lake tahoe are encountering an aggressive pest instead. ,,

6:42 am
6:43 am
we wanted to know: who do y think should start at quarterback for the 49er
6:44 am
let's close the voting... ta look at your screen... a majority of viewers back to our kpix 5 snapshot question. who do you think should start as quarterback for the 49ers tonight? 77% going with kaepernick. it sounds like the 49ers are probably leaning toward having him be the starting qb. could be exciting. >> yes. it will. time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." anthony mason joins us from new york. good morning. >> good morning, michelle. coming up accusations of prejudice and racism are dominating the presidential campaign this morning. we look into the rise of the so- called "alt right" movement. police, a unique approach to fighting superbugs. you will meet the dog that could save lives by smelling the dangerous drug-resistant bacteria. >> and a preview of my sunday morning conversation with barbra streisand. why she doesn't really like performing. the news is back in the

morning. we'll see you at 7:00. >> she doesn't like it but we love it when she performs. >> we love it. >> yes. we do. we know she doesn't like siri saying her last name wrong, either. [ laughter ] >> no. [ laughter ] >> all right. anthony, can't wait to see that. sigh at 7:00. -- see you at 7:00. let's go ahead and check in with kcbs financial reporter jason brooks for the interest rates later today. >> good morning. >> reporter: good morning. janet yellen will be take the stage in jackson hole, wyoming, in about 15 minutes. all eyes will be on what she has to say about the feds' plans for lifting interest rates once again. she won't detail that specifically. it's going to be the clues that she provides and her confidence in the economy. we have seen very strong hiring in june and july, the housing market has been strong, too. and many analysts on wall street are expecting at least one more rate hike this year possibly in september if we get a good enough jobs report in august. now, the economy will have to
6:46 am
