The San Francisco voters approved a measure to help the city's homeless population by taxing large companies.
The Voice Initiative, Proposition C, asked among the leading Silicon Valley technology leaders who will be most affected by the new tax.
It is expected to contribute an additional $ 300 million to the city's funds focused on helping San Francisco's homeless population.
As the poll, technical experts gathered together on Twitter about the measure. The most public spit over the goal that was played between Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, who with Salesforce donated millions of dollars in favor of Proposition C's campaign and Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey, who donated money to the campaign against the measure.
Dorsey criticized the initiative to tax some financial tech companies, like Square, more than others as Salesforce, despite the fact that Salesforce is many times larger than Square.
"We are happy to pay our taxes. We will only be treated fairly compared to our peer companies, many of which are 2-1[ads1]0 times greater than us," Dorsey tweeted in October. "Otherwise, we do not know how to grow in town. It's heartbreaking for us as we love SF and will continue to help build it."
Benioff had the attack Dorsey on Twitter not to offer alternative policy solutions, in addition to broad support for Mayor London Breed's efforts to help the city's fiercely homeless population.
Other technology companies had expressed their opposition to the case too, Stripe, Lift and Zynga.
Benioff welcomed the initiative's passage on Wednesday.
Prop C's victory means that the homeless want a home and the help they really need! Let the city come together in love for those who need it most! There is no goal when it comes to helping the homeless. Thank you amazing supporters for Prop C! pic.twitter.com/0JOXCua1m1
