WorkWeek first looks at the issues of privatization from the Port of Oakland, Charter schools to the fight against privatization in Chile, Mexico and the struggle of the Palestinian people. WorkWeek talks with former ILWU Local 10 Secretary-Treasurer Clarence Thomas.

Next WorkWeek looks at the catastrophic fires again caused by the mismanagement of the privately-owned utility PG&E.
We talk with PG& E worker Daniel Pena about the history of "accidents" caused by the drive to increase profits and the solutions.
