Money is becoming increasingly hard to come by for the tech sector in San Francisco, which may actually be good news for some.
Aaron Peskin, an elected member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, is standing up to big tech companies and calling on them to be part of the conversation on soaring costs of living and community issues.
A one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco now goes for $3,500 per month, making it the highest in the country.
"It's not rooting against the hometown team, but bringing that team in and having them be part of the solution," Peskin said on CNBC's "Power Lunch". "These billion-dollar companies need to do their fair-share."
