Editorial: Vote ‘No’ on El Camino Salary Cap Measure
A San Jose Mercury News editorial argues that Measure M -- aÂ ballot initiative that would cap annual executive compensation at El Camino Hospital at twice the governor's salary -- is "an entirely self-serving measure placed on the ballot ... by union members as a ploy to spur El Camino management to pay a higher percentage of union members' health care benefits." According to the editorial, it is also "a bad idea to limit executive compensation in this highly specialized and competitive field." The editorial encourages readers to "[v]ote no on Measure M."
