FROM THIS EPISODE

As the budget debate continues over how to deal with the least among us in California, there are calls from the extreme left for Governor Brown, and the Legislature, to devote more to those people and social programs that were hit hard in the state budget by the Great Recession, and that haven’t much recovered. Meanwhile, minimum wage hike proposals are getting the once-over in Los Angeles, with council members getting into the fray about which study is better than the other. Joe Mathews is California Columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and Melanie Mason covers politics and state government for the LA Times. They spoke to KCRW's Steve Chiotakis.
