Non-Profits, Privatization & Union Busting and The Judgement: AI Robojudge, Labor & The Militarization of Australia & Lessons Of UC UAW Strike
WorkWeek 8-24-23
WorkWeek looks at the role of non-profits, privatization and labor. A panel was held to look at how non-profits are being used by capitalist politicians in San Francisco to outsource and privatize public jobs in San Francisco.
This speakers discuss how this is part of a union busting agenda.
Next, we program Playwright Howard Pflanzer look at what would happen to a judge that was really an AI judge. We program The Judgement: AI Robojudge. Robojudge programmed by Artificial Intelligence is forced to testify, and then judge himself guilty or not, when the government finds classified material in his memory which he is unaware of. Manipulation of AI memory material is the key to this situation. Can the law be interpreted through the filter of AI and judgements be rendered by an algorithm? The play dramatizes this legal conundrum in a personal trial.

WorkWeek 8-24-23 AUKUS, Labor & The Militarization of Australia & Lessons Of UC UAW Strike
https://soundcloud.com/workweek-radio/ww-8-24-23-aukus-militarization-of-australia-lessons-of-uc-uaw-strike WorkWeek looks at the massive militarization of Australia being pushed by the Democrats and Republicans and growing opposition by labor and anti-war activists. We hear from Shirey Winten who is with the Independent and Peaceful Australian Network. She spoke to about the way President Biden and a bipartisan Congressional are pushing for war in Asia. Also Kevin Bracken, past chair of the Victoria Melbourne Maritime Union of Australia, talks aabout how the US is forcing its junior partner Australia into an expensive military alliance that could lead to war in Asia.
Next WorkWeek examinees the largest and longest strike in the history of the University of California in 2022 50,000 UAW graduate students and researchers went out all UC campuses. A statewide rank and file caucus had a panel on what the lessons of the strike were.
For most UC graduate students and researchers this was the first strike and also probably the first strike that these workers had been involved in. We hear about the lessons at a panel.
