Chamber Stands Up for Tech

The Chamber spoke out against tech industry scapegoating and stood up for the city’s tech sector and its job multiplier effect on the CNBC Nightly Business Report, which aired nationally with local broadcast on KQED-TV (PBS) last Wednesday. “Tech is a job multiplier – creating five additional non-tech jobs for every tech industry job added,” said Chamber President & CEO Bob Linscheid. The Chamber continues to engage tech leaders in TAG (Technology Advisory Group) and will continue to work with tech-industry partners to counter the false claims that the industry is the cause of gentrification in the city.
