Fair Pay in Hollywood, and Los Angeles v. San Francisco

Hosted by  • 

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that he’s abandoning the race for Speaker of the House. John Boehner is expected to step down at the end of the month, but McCarthy was unable to unite the party behind his candidacy. And Gov. Jerry Brown has signed California’s Fair Pay Act into law. It aims to reduce the gender gap in wages across the state. That gap has gotten special attention in Hollywood recently, where female stars typically earn 77 percent of the pay of their male co-stars. Then, we hear the story of one person who helped hackers deface a headline on the L.A. Times website and was convicted in federal court—he could face up to 25 years in prison. Finally, a look at how L.A. and San Francisco measure up when it comes to per capita income.
