sociology major and you give your lecture to the students. what are you going to say about that? give them perspective on the announcement. >> today's veteran's day and i will be going to bed, but on monday morning we talk about that and we had 150 students out here and i think the message will be what's the direction of our state and our nation? in light of the budget increase, that's on top of the 32% and 10% the previous year for a total of 240%. i think there has been pressure being put on the middle and the working class to pay for the economic crisis. not that people shouldn't -- where is the shared
responsibility? always rely on them and they are working at two jobs. they are working 35 hours a week on average. how much more can they give without the state coming in and saying what other state solutions can be offered? the students have offered. there was the oil tax they wanted to put on. they pushed that last year and i think it was $1 billion to cut and closed the budget gap. >> congress didn't take that up. >> our assembly did not pass that. that was something that texas had in alaska. the students were trying to push that as a response instead of always going to them and expecting them to be the ones to solve the economic crisis. >> thank you very much. obviously you spent the night out here judging by your. >> an effort to get a protest

raise the retirement age from 65 to 69. that would save a ton in social security costs. second, reconsider raises for those on social security. cola or cost of living, the government can make the checks bigger and never smaller. reconsider the tax bricks you get for paying a home mortgage. these are tough medicine but unless you raise taxes, recently president obama said he would be willing to reconsider extending the bush tax cuts even to the super wealthy. they would reduce the deficit by 3.8 trillion which is a ton. they are propoetals only. raising taxes or reduced spending. there two more and let's really, really hope the economy gets better. >> here's the last solution.
pick the can down the road and make the kids deal with it. i'm not a betting man, but we will see what happens. >> thanks a lot, scott. >> 6:19 right now and a global grocery chain is looking to hire workers. fresh and easy will hire 270 people in the next few months at a dozen soon to open stores. they will be located in concord, danville, pacifica, san francisco, and walnut creek. san jose is getting two stores. people will honor veterans with a parade. the veteran's day parade will kickoff at 11:00. the parade starts at west santa clara street and dell months avenue. no doubt a big crowd out there. >> a big crowd to be sure. a little bit of a crowd building and we'll look over here and

the city it get into the spirit of the holiday season. walnut creek on ice will start at 5:30. the outdoor rink will be opened in january. they are sponsoring the kickoff and say thing is free. they will kick it off at 5:00. >> speebing of kickoff, we are halfway through the season. it's always good to have the coach joining thus morning. >> glad to be here. >> before we get started about san jose state and the rest of the season, the quarterback at auburn and i guess there was reports he would take big money to leave and go somewhere else. he's in the heisman hunt. some of the people who vote say we will not vote for him. is it fair when you hear the
rumors to do those kinds of things? >> what's happened is there is backlash. >> this is the same thing all over again. it's the same because i hope all of it is not true. >> it does put everybody in a tough situation, but maybe it's hard because you let it play itself out and two or years later with the investigation if it turned out to be true. >> for does get sticky. >> for does and it's a shame these things come up in college football. i sure hope it's not. watching the young man, he is a phenomenal athlete. >> let's talk about utah state. >> utah state coming here on saturday at 5:00. it will be a big game and we have all the ex-players coming in. 400 of them and families and an exciting day for us. >> my alma mater who i hate to
