Longreads Member Pick: The Offline Wage Wars of Silicon Valley

For this week's Longreads Member Pick, we're excited to share a story from Next City's Forefront magazine, by journalist Nona Willis Aronowitz. Aronowitz looks at the story behind the minimum wage increase in San Jose, which jumped to $10 per hour from $8 per hour after the city's residents voted for the increase last November—"the single largest minimum-wage jump in the nation’s history."
