6:12 pm
>> did they ever pay you overtime? >> no. >> reporter: and overworked. >> there's no consequences if they don't pay. >> reporter: it's called wage theft, and it's happening here in the bay area and around california. employers neglecting to pay their workers, leaving the workers with nothing. >> do they do this to me? i don't deserve this. >> reporter: she worked 10 to 12 hour days six days a week even sometimes seven, at a residential home for mentally ill clients in san jose. did you ever get paid overtime? >> no. >> reporter: but you always worked it? >> yes. >> reporter: so you'd worked your 40 hours and then work some more? >> yes, sir. >> reporter: because you had to? >> yes, because nobody would relieve me. >> reporter: she filed a complaint, and the court ruled that she was owed nearly $65,000, but she is not alone. we requested all wage claims dating back to 2010. we found that statewide in the last four years, courts and the labor commission have ruled
6:13 pm
against 17,000 different companies, and awarded workers $274 million. $81 million of those unpaid wages were from companies right here in the bay area, many of them repeat offenders. take crazy buffet in sunnyvail. there are 18 complaints and the workers won in 17 of the cases. here is the data. we have tried to call. your phone is disconnected. we went there to get an explanation. you guys are listed as not paying your workers to the tune of $500,000. but the man we were directed to denied being the manager or owner, and walked away as we tried to ohioshow him the state's data. other local companies such as united meat company, draeger construction have all been ruled against by the courts for
6:14 pm
not paying their workers properly. according to the labor commissioner, as many as 60% of the companies that owe their workers go out of business or change names. draeger construction and united meat both went out of business and bottlerock changed owners. just because a court rules that a company owes an employee money does not mean that the workers actually ever get paid. >> translator: i feared that i would lose my job. >> reporter: he worked for a restaurant called m a's in san jose. he spoke to us using an interpret interpreter. >> translator: i feel i was mistreated because they would make us work more time than we should have, and they didn't pay wages. >> reporter: a federal court awarded him $35,000 in a judgment, but he's yet to see a penny of that money. >> it's a failure of the fundamental promise of the american dream. >> reporter: she and her team at ucla's labor center obtained records from the state for every wage claim filed between 2008 and 2011. >> it doesn't even skim the
6:15 pm
surface. >> reporter: their data shows that many of the companies that were ruled against by the labor commission never paid the back wages at all. >> we were shocked to discover that just 17% of those folks who received final judgments for unpaid wages collected a dime, which means that 83% had nothing to show for their efforts. >> there is an epidemic. >> reporter: she has been running a free labor clinic tackling these issues for 11 years. held at santa clara university's kathryn and george alexander community law center. >> it's anti-competitive behavior. >> reporter: she says dodging wage obligations has become a business model. companies simply don't pay, even after the courts rule against them. then those companies keep doing business as usual. >> wage theft is one of the greatest threats in california today. >> reporter: she serves as california's labor commissioner. she's as frustrated as anyone about these companies' failure to pay their workers.
6:16 pm
>> the majority of targets that we hit are breaking the law. we're finding it. we're issuing citations and getting them to pay. >> reporter: but she admits the state has a long way to go and she concedes that thousands of workers owed millions of dollars in wage theft still go unpaid every year. >> more needs to be done and we are doing more with the resources that we have. >> reporter: do we need more enforcement, more effective enforcement, here in california? >> i would say that my work is not done so yes, i think that we can always do better, and we are striving to do better. >> right now under state law, there are few consequences for any company that does not pay. last year there was a proposed law to fix all of that but that proposed law failed to pass at the 11th hour in sacramento. commissioner su hurvegsh says she is considering the possibility of filing criminal charges against company owners maybe even locking them up in jail. none of the owners featured in the story who talked to us would comment on the record.

6:18 pm
shot you shot. you can barely make out the bay bridge tonight. be prepared for that if you're in the south bay and heading up to san francisco. it is jacket weather. you may even need the windshield wipers for drizzle. a lost the moisture is getting squeezed out. looking at tomorrow's forecast, it's going to be a mild day, but we're not expecting major record-setting heat like the last couple of days. 68 in valley. next couple of days it's not going to be nearly as hot as it was the past couple of days. you'll see as we head throughout the south bay, 70 on wednesday. 73 on thursday. 72 by friday. we'll hold in the upper 60s to low 70s here for the peninsula. san francisco, looks like mid to upper 70s are just completely gone. only 68 here for thursday. also 67 by friday. for the north bay, east shore and also the trivalley, a round of low 70s up into morin, napa,
6:19 pm
and sonoma county. in the full forecast in about 25 minutes, we'll talk about a slight chance just a slight chance here, of some weekend showers. i'll have details on that. on this presidents' holiday, a new score with a presidential monument. the washington monument is nearly 10 inches shorter than previously thought. it's not sinking. the height discrepancy is actually over how the d.c. monument was first measured back in 1884. back then crews measured from a point below the surface of the patio. today, new measurements were taken from the entrance floor to the tip. its new official height in case you're keeping track at home, 554 feet and 7 inches. up next an nbc bay area investigation uncovers what's really going on inside the medical marijuana industry in california. and a crime surge. burglaries skyrocketing in san jose. our political analyst will join us to look at ideas on how the city can stem the tide.
6:20 pm
6:21 pm
6:22 pm
more than half a million dollars for new cars for top elected officials. critiblescs say it's something our state can't afford. they say paying that much for cars is excessive. they were bought for state senators to use in sacramento. the critics say the money should instead go to social service
6:23 pm
programs. state officials say the order to swap out older cars with eco friendly models came straight from the governor's office. governor jerry brown wants 10% of nonemergency state vehicles to be eco friendly. does a nicer neighborhood get better police protection? this is a concern spreading across san jose and another headache for the embattled police department. larry, this stems from the issues in the less affluent east side of town. >> take a look at the comparison of officers to people in san jose, san francisco, and oakland. you can see it for yourself. san francisco has fewer residents than san jose, but nearly three times as many officers. per 100,000 people. oakland as well. its population is half of san jose's and it has nearly twice the number of officers. and now perhaps out of embarrassment or maybe political pressure or maybe both the city is shifting its limited
6:24 pm
resources from poor areas to affluent areas. that may help the folks out there, but the question is we have a gaping hole. what do you do about that? >> you're talking about really political embarrassment, but it's really about safety. how does the city get out of this mess? >> well it is a mess. they will concentrate in stopping the police from leaving. the mayor has tossed out an olive branch of sorts, although he may need a grove's worth of olive trees before it's over. second the city needs to consider increasing revenues. perhaps sales tax increase, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 cent raise. but it won't be on the ballot until next year at the earliest. so fundamentally, what's this all about? it's about equality. the big public relations black eye for san jose centers on the
6:25 pm
perception that it's treating affluent residents better than poor residents unless the city deals with the concerns quickly the perceptions, they may have a long time solving its problems with residents that have had the least trust in its candidacy to begin with. >> this is his biggest challenge for sure. thank you, larry. still ahead, false alarm. the scare that has people at one california airport running for their lives. also, united in sadness. bay area christians mourn the death of 21 people executed by isis. what they want the united states to do in response to these brutal killings. >> so what does he have to say to get the car? >> basically just say that you have lower back pain or something. >> does it have to be true? >> not necessarily. up next a hidden camera investigation. all it takes is heartburn, $80, and about 10 minutes with a doctor. stay with us.
6:26 pm
we investigate medical marijuana, next.
6:27 pm
6:28 pm
you ca a developing story now. tonight, retaliation. egypt responds to the execution of 21 coptic christians by isis. new video showing the beheadings of the egyptian christians makes it clear they were killed for their beliefs. as egypt takes action against isis, bay area egyptian christians say the u.s. needs to step up its response against the terror group.
6:29 pm
nbc bay area's mark matthews spent the day talking with local egyptian christians live in san francisco with more. mark? >> reporter: as you know president obama has asked congress for authorization of military force against isis and as you say, jordan has already started air strikes. now egypt joining in. today at a coptic christian church in the bay area i heard calls for even stronger military response. the priest of the coptic church in hayward told his congregation today be proud of the martyrs who died in libya. 21 coptic christians beheaded by isis forces. the father says the u.s. response should be military force. >> isis is kind of virus. if we keep it, it will destroy everywhere. even here. >> reporter: everyone we talked at the church agreed. the u.s. needs to do more to defeat isis. >> i don't like the u.s. to put
6:30 pm
boots on the ground again or soldiers, but i have a feeling they can do a lot more than what's being done now. >> our government is letting people suffer. >> we can't sit and just watch my fellow brothers or the families weeping every single day. >> reporter: today egypt launched air strikes against isis forces in libya, and called on the u.s. to expand its military strikes into libya. there has been a lot of talk about reaching a tipping point against isis forces, but a former assistant secretary of defense for global strategeic affairs says there is no plan to send soldiers on the ground. >> every one of these muslim countries is corrupt, completely corrupt. with a deeply alienated population. >> reporter: he says there may be more air strikes that are more than symbolics, but they fear what will happen if they send their troops to fight sunni
6:31 pm
troops in other countries. >> it may lead to disruption and even overthrow at home. >> reporter: the professor says the talk of the tipping point is just that talk, and that isis grin gains recruits and even financial support every time they release one of these videos. mark matthews, nbc bay area news. a false alarm at l.a.x. sent passengers running out of the terminal and onto the tarmac today. police say they were responding to a possible suicide attempt this morning, but somehow a rumor circulated that a gunman was on the loose at the airport. that rumor ended up being announced over the airport's public address system. about 20 passengers ran through emergency doors and out onto the tarmac. in reality, a police pursuit was going on outside of the terminal. whether they like it or not, california cities are in the marijuana business. nearly two decades ago, voters legalized medical marijuana. >> and getting that marijuana is easier than you might think.
6:32 pm
tonight, our investigative unit has a hidden camera look. chief investigative reporter is with us. and pot is supposed to be only for chronic illnesses, but a lot of people are abusing the system. >> reporter: with nothing more than a diagnosis for a heartburn, we sent a producer out to test california's medical marijuana standard. the question how far are we from states that have already legalized recreational marijuana? >> legal sales began this morning at 8:00. >> this is colorado. >> i knew some day it was going to be legal, and i'd be there for it. >> reporter: and this is california. >> we have a hotel room. the doctor is on site. >> reporter: two different business models. from a pot shop in denver -- >> we are told from pot shop owners they think they made more than $1 million on day one alone. >> reporter: to a street corner in downtown san jose. what do i have to say? >> i mean what's your medical
6:33 pm
condition would be for using cannabis. do you have any symptoms anxiety, trouble sleeping? >> do i need any proof? >> not at all. >> reporter: essentially, two states, two different laws one's recreational, and one's medical. >> so what does he have to say to get the card? >> just say that you have lower back pain or something. >> does it have to be true? >> i mean, not necessarily. >> reporter: what our investigation and our hidden cameras have discovered when defining medical and recreational marijuana laws it may be a distinction without a difference. is this a regular doctor? >> she's an m.d. but she specializes in doing just this. >> reporter: she is a recruiter, walking us to that hotel room blocks from the recent
6:34 pm
hempconconvention in downtown san jose. >> you have a reason. insom in ain a. who doesn't have insomnia? >> from there, the producer met with the doctor inside a room at the motel. >> when we were here the doctor asked me what are you here for? and i said i have some medical paperwork, but i want a medical marijuana card. >> he brought this paperwork, proof from his personal primary care physicians that in fact he had heartburn. did the doctor ask you if you had a heartburn? >> no. the doctor never asked me if i had heartburn. >> reporter: did you expect that the doctor would examine you? >> i expect a stethoscope somewhere, and i never saw a stethoscope, she never listened to my heart rate. never listened to my pulse. >> reporter: so with heartburn and $80, our producer got this medical marijuana recommendation and this card all the documentation required to legally purchase marijuana for the next year.
6:35 pm
are you at all surprised we got a medical marijuana card with the heartburn in about 10 minutes of our time? >> i'm not surprised. >> reporter: he supervises the narcotics prosecution team for the santa clara county district attorney. our hidden cameras essentially proved the obvious. anyone who wants a medical marijuana card can get one in california. >> there is a million -- i would say even a $1 billion industry in california in the issuing of recommendations by doctors who are doing it under suspicious circumstances. it's a farce. >> reporter: san jose's mayor, sam lucardo. >> we know for the most part this industry has grown to its present size for reasons having nothing to do with medical needs. >> reporter: basically a doctor right now can give it for pretty much any reason, right? >> that's what the law says. >> reporter: dave hodges founded one of the first cannabis collectives in san jose.
6:36 pm
would you be surprised if i told you that we got a medical marijuana card with the condition of heartburn? >> no, actually, it wouldn't surprise me at all. >> reporter: do you think that's legit? >> that's one of the reasons we need legalization. >> reporter: and that's where many now believe california is headed back to the ballot box to legally clear up any confusion between california's current law and what voters approved in washington and colorado. >> do we really have recreational marijuana legalized already in this state? >> it's pretty close. and that's actually probably one of the reasons we don't have legal marijuana recreational marijuana right now, is because the laws are so close to that that most californians feel that it already is legal. >> reporter: does this in essence prove there's not a whole lot of difference between california and colorado and washington? >> well, there's more obstacles to getting recreational
6:37 pm
marijuana, but i think we all agree it's recreational marijuana here at this point. >> here in california? >> at least dpichbgiven the way that many dispensaries operate yes. >> reporter: next year california voters will likely consider as many as three different propositions calling for legalized recreational marijuana. and the medical recommendation and marijuana card that we did receive, you should know will be destroyed and not used to purchase marijuana. coming up thursday night, our investigation continues as we explore the controversy inside the marijuana business tax in california. the money that the city makes on the marijuana. >> if you have a tip for tony or anyone else in our investigative unit call us at 1-888-996-tips. still ahead, a $1 billion heist. new details on what some are calling the biggest robbery in history. also -- >> this morning, in my driveway, there was a moose head.

6:40 pm
a $1 billion swipe from more than 100 banks in 30 countries. this might be the biggest cyber hack in history. crooks managed to rob banks here in the united states russia japan, and europe in 2013 without ever stepping foot inside of a branch. the thieves did it by sending bank employees email
6:41 pm

south bay, mainly clear with 63. tomorrow morning, fog at the coastline will continue to intrude into the interior valley. so it's not going to be a sunny start like we've had the past three to four days. areas of patchy fog. temperatures at 36 in the north bay. south bay, 48. so the key difference in the forecast, no doubt from when we had the hot record-setting temperatures close to 80 degrees to tomorrow's forecast which is going to be cooler is the fact that we'll have these westerly winds. it takes this cooler pacific air and pushes it all across the bay area. and it takes some of the moisture from the pacific and again gets that fog machine going across the bay area. it's not going to be very gusty. only about 5-10 miles per hour. but you can see on the future cast for tomorrow morning it's the coastline. also alameda county possibly down to santa clara dealing with the clouds, and also morin, napa and sonoma counties. the fog will burn off for everyone by 11:00 except the
6:50 pm
coast and possibly the san francisco peninsula. eventually by the afternoon we'll have increased sunshine across the bay. overall, the bottom line on this tomorrow it will cool down by about three to five degrees but i still think we'll have an awesome day coming our way. san jose expecting 68 degrees. 70 at the coast line here. cool at the beaches. 62 in pacifica. palo alto 68. napa expecting 69. oakland 67. and we'll have mild weather here and pleasant with 70 degrees. the trend throughout the week, it continues to stay dry on wednesday, thursday friday. also on saturday. the biggest change though, you'll notice by saturday, clouds increase. there is a very very slight chance we may get some showers. it's only about 20% right now. we'll see this inside slider, the storm system sliding in from the east. we'll continue to monitor that. right now it looks dry, but about a 20% chance of maybe
6:51 pm
something. more on that throughout the week. >> and that big hockey game for the sharks on saturday night. >> rain would be the worse thing, so we're trying to push that away. what a weekend it was in the big apple. but now will all-star party is over for the splash brothers. back to work here in the bay area for the warriors as they chase down an nba title. in our house, we do just about everything online. and our old internet just wasn't cutting it. so i switched us from u-verse to xfinity. they have the fastest, most reliable internet. which is perfect for me, because i think everything should just work. works? works. works! works? works. works.
