8:06 am
closer to ever to striking 92% of the union mount diablo education association voted to call a strike if needed. and they're getting very close to that. been negotiating for some time now. but i can tell you after talking with several teachers, they have hope they believe they're going to able to get to a contract. it's all settled up before they have to strike. but if they don't, they're ready to strike the current contract expire june 30th of last year. union members say they have not had any salary increase, as i said the last 5 years. so they are extremely frustrated. the union says the district has enough revenue to fund what they are asking for, which is a 12.5% increase over a 6 period 6 year period of time. that's between 2017. so back, pete back, pay situation to 2024. that's more than 2% increase per year. and union members say with inflation at an all-time high, they need to be paid. some teachers told me it's causing for them not be able to live in the area. some people say that some teachers, they don't even have a place to live because they can't

8:09 am
teachers because of that spent the last 3 nights sleeping at district headquarters to call attention to the problem and demand their paychecks. well, they've reached a deal. so the teachers went out and they're not sleeping there anymore. and apparently the check's in the mail today because they're going to be paying the unpaid balances today to the teachers and then also the man made a commitment that the teachers will receive payment for any errors in 3 business days. if the payroll issues continue and if the air s don't get fixed in 3 days, then they get interest. the district will pay 15% interest for each day owed. also, teachers will get paid for covid-related sick days and the district will reimburse all the money. the teachers had to spend on penalties on late fees on credit cards or mortgages that were missed or bank overdressed. the happened because of these payroll problems. california democrats are getting ready to give out $400 to every californian who pays income tax in the state. and that's including if you
8:10 am
don't even own a car, they want to try to help us deal with all of the fallout from gas prices because lawmakers say that this affects everybody not just filling your tank, but inflation and gas prices have been trickling down and making everything more expensive. so this rebate money would come from 9 billion dollars of the state's budget surplus, which is supposed to be about 45 billion dollars this year. lawmakers arrived at the $400 payment because they estimate that's how much most californians could save if the state were to get rid of the 51 per cent gas tax. if they'd had that for a year, if that was saved for you, the temperature about $400. so democrats are hoping this money. we'll get to people by maybe this spring and spring starts sunday. so that soon because right around the corner, it's not only the state of california is trying to help people cope with the rising gas prices. congress is also trying to come up with a plan to help. it's a nationwide problem. joe khalil takes a look at what they're doing. as americans face down higher prices at the pump.

8:12 am
not all of those ideas are viable. he opposes suspending the gas tax not a good idea. one we take those dollars and we put them back to send back states for infrastructure projects. what's the solution to try to, you know, maybe soften the blow? >> drill, baby, drill. well, that was joe khalil reporting for us. >> take a look at what drivers are paying in the bay area. san francisco has the most expensive gas averaging $5.91 a gallon. oakland stands at about 5.83 a gallon and napa 5.92 a gallon. and in san jose, $5 and $0.80. >> 12 right now. and still ahead on the kron 4 morning news taken right from from under their nose and under their van, actually, we're going to see this family who watched as crooks took their catalytic converter. we'll tell you what they did. >> and brightening skies across the bay area going to be a beautiful, sunny day. sfo looking nice and calm.
