Newsom’s Wife Says Strong Things About California’s Main Business!

Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of Governor Gavin Newsom, took aim at the tech industry during the Milken Institute Global Conference, criticizing major firms for their failure to address social media addiction and mental health issues among young people. Speaking at a conference typically attended by tech leaders, Siebel Newsom accused the industry of prioritizing capitalist interests over the well-being of children.

Siebel Newsom emphasized the need for legislation if tech companies fail to be more transparent and proactive in addressing these issues.
