9:09 pm
with a second operation looming, she died. an emergency room physician says head injuries can be unpredictable. >> they can seem to be acting normal, but slowly the bleed builds up to the point where then they eventually get too big of a hemorrhage and they can't overcome it with their mental faculties, and they just decline suddenly. >> reporter: shannon says her mother spent her life taking care of other people, and even in death, she'd want to help others by sharing this story. shannon says this poster that used to hang in her mother's house says it all. >> this is her motto, you know. she had a lot of lemons in her life, and she constantly made lemonade. if it seems bart trains are more crowded than ever, it's not your imagination. many bart passengers have been struggling to find a seat. officials say there are two reasons why. first, more riders. there were a few days last week when 430,000 people climbed onboard. a year ago, that number was 391,000. second, there are fewer train cars.

governor brown today signed a bill giving more than 6 million california workers paid sick leave. whether you're a dishwasher in san diego or a store clerk in oakland, the governor says this bill frees you of having to choose between your family's health and your job. reporter laura anthony has the story. >> this is the least we can do. >> reporter: governor jerry brown says it's the right thing to do, but some worry a new law that requires employers to give employees at least some paid sick time could be especially bad for small businesses. >> for small businesses, that shouldn't be a rule. i would say the law should discriminate on the amount of workers, employees, that are in the business. >> reporter: eddie just opened his new cross burgers six months ago. he's open to giving paid sick time to full-time employees, but the law requires it also be extended to employees who work just 30 days in a year. >> yeah. that's a tough one. that's a tough one.
9:15 pm
you know, i didn't get the 30-day part. you know, that changes things a little bit. but i'm sure there's a reason for it. >> reporter: cafe talavera just opened in oakland with just three employees and an owner who is very hands on. >> i think it's fair. three sick days is pretty fair to me. and people should have a sick day. they shouldn't feel obligated to go to work sick. >> reporter: the paid sick time can also be used for family leave. it would be accrued at a rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked at least three days in a year. >> somebody who is serving me something does not need to be ill serving it to me. and that's common sense. don't you think? >> reporter: employers in oakland also face the prospect of paying a higher minimum wage in a measure on the november ballot passes. that wage would go up from $9 to $12.25 per hour. in oakland, laura anthony, abc 7 news. six undercover police
