6:21 am
finding new workers and training them and getting them -- into the workplace, the other workers -- those costs go down. >> only three cities in the united states have their own minimum wage that applies to everybody in the city. san francisco, $10.24 an hour. sante fe, $10.29. washington, d.c., $8.25. dollar higher than the federal minimum wage. san jose would become the fourth. now these increases don't actually affect that many people because many businesses pay their least paid workers quite a bit. starbucks, lowest salary, for instance, is already above the state minimum wage. in fact, if the minimum wage were increased in san jose, your average starter barista in san jose would still make more money than that. >> as always, very interesting perspective. thank you very much. 6:21. arizona's controversial immigration law goes before the u.s. supreme court today. n aails arex i rtrepo live m report from washington. f

6:25 am
the justices here at the u.s. supreme court. there has been a big debate over whether or not this profiling. arizona says that they are trying to crack down on the illegal immigration because the federal government won't. it is costing them millions of dollars. this is sure to be a political hot potato this year because president obama's administration jumped in and filed suit against arizona and the president had hoped for comprehensive reform. and it did not happen in the first term. at least not so far. political issue here on the hill as well. a hearing yesterday. republicans boycotted that hearing. calling this political side show. now if the court upholds this law, democrats say that they have a backup plan, a bill this would prevent states from enacting laws like this. >> okay. we will keep an eye on that. thank you very much. 6:25 now. we check in with meteorologist christina loren to find out -- i think we will get rain in certain areas. >> we are going to get some rain. in fact, we already have some
