Is San Francisco's "Hire Local" Policy a Good Idea?
The goal is to keep San Francisco taxpayer funds within the local economy, and make it easier for unemployed San Francisco residents to secure construction work.
Some unions consider appointment of workers to jobs based on city of residence to be discriminatory and impractical. Such law is also perceived to come at a huge cost for San Francisco taxpayers - estimated to be $9.3 million per year, along with a negative impact on the regional economy.
