WorkWeek covers a press conference on against the billionaire GAP and A's owner John Fisher who wants to privatize the
Howard Terminal in the Port of Oakland for a tax funded stadium, hotels and 3,000 luxury condos.
The press conference and speakers spoke at the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission which is
appointed by the Governor. Speakers protested the role of the chair Zack Wasserman who is a land development lawyer that
had previously worked for John Fisher and the A's.
Next WorkWeek covers a strike by detained immigrant workers at the Geo Group detention centers at Golden State Annex and Mesa Verde facilities. They are only being paid $1 dollar a day and face dangerous health and safety conditions as well as a lack of proper food.
We interview strikers Garcia and Sarafin about why they took strike action. We also talk with Esperanza Cuautle Velazquez
with Pangea legal services and Edwin Carman Cruz with the Collaborative For Immigrant Justice.
