Join Labor On The Job as we cover the protest and speakout in Oakland, California by members of CA SEIU 6434 Long Term Homecare Workers LTHW and the growing corruption scandal with their president Tyrone Freeman who was appointed by SEIU International President Andy Stern. Homecare workers also seek to bring a petition to the SEIU Northern California headquarters but are stopped at the door.
We will also look at the effort of San Francisco sex workers to decriminalize criminal laws against prostitution. Proposition K on the November San Francisco ballot would change the city laws and these workers talk about how it would be beneficial to the workers and the community.
Finally, we will interview KPFA unpaid staffer Nadra Foster who was beaten by police at the station when management called them to arrest her for trespassing. The arrest took place on August 20, 2008 and this taping took place at the arraignment hearing on August 25, 2008. The management of KPFA and Pacifica Executive Director Nicole Sawaya defend the calling of the police. Sawaya was also personally involved in blocking the KPFA staff from videotaping the police assault.
