11:19 am
know she personally have worked on this issue for a long time. she is correct that i believe that the issues that she is describing does hit every district and impacts san francisco all together. i really appreciate the fact because this is a glai area where there is really some many legitimate masseuse that do this as a legitimate business --and there is always going to be people that abuse it and turn it into something else so grad you are taking this head on. also, with the sensitivity of existing people that are doing this as a legitimate
11:20 am
lifestyle and trying to make a living because i know that there are many masseuse including my late sister who was a masseuse that was very legitimate and so i thank you and if i could be added as cosponsor i would love to be. >> thank you supervisor yee. supervisor wiener >> thank you to supervisor tang and her office to fr for doing a lot of work. it is a very challenging one which is why it is taken several iterations. i know it ping-ponged between san francisco and sacramento and here we are today. there are 2 reasons why this has been so challenging and we know we have a problem in san francisco
11:21 am
around human traffics. it is embarrassing that san francisco is a epiy center in the kunt ey of human trafficking, not just around the fake massage parlers but are human trafficking establishments, but well beyond that. we know san francisco and the bay area we vareal problem and think it is important to address that. we heard a lot of feedback from the massage community and that made it a challenging issue because the massage therapy community is concerned they are being somehow swept in with the human traffickers when we know there are so many hundred percent legitimate professional establishments out there and
11:22 am
great practitioner and know no one is swooepiing them in, but i understand why they feel thrai grouped in with horrible people that are trafficking other human beings. there is the other issue of it is so challenging to start and grow a small business in san francisco and the conditional use process is a really challenging one especially for smaller businesses and so i very much understand the concern about your-we are a legitimate business and haet human traffickers as much as anyone else and are forced to go into a conditional use process. i very much understand those concerns and think it is important to acknowledge that there are so many completely legitimate massage therapy practitioners out there it that help people to heal and stay
11:23 am
healthy and shouldn't be confused with the fronts for human trafficking. i want to thank supervisor tang the amendments she made in terms of grand fathers and helping the existing businesses mpt as i mentioned in committee weal will work on trailing legislation in a collaborative way with the massage community with supervisor tang and can't guarantee any of these are going to succeed, but we are going to consider them and work on them and see if we can make them succeed and brief the issues we are going to work on. one, is to change the title of not just massage establishment, but make it clear this is a health related professional. also with the issue of currently if you are a massage establishment in a location where your rent gets jacked up or you are evected and have to move, seeing if it is possible the move doesn't trigger a
