Oakland City Workers on Strike, Plus: David Cay Johnston and Trumping Democracy

On today’s show, we talk to Lina Hernandez of SEIU Local 1021 about the over 3,000 Oakland city workers set to strike after attempts to negotiate with the city were rejected.

Then, as part of our fund drive, we hear Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, one of the foremost experts on Donald Trump, speaking about his rise to power and the significance of his presidency during a KPFA event.

Next, we feature clips from Trumping Democracy, a new documentary from director Thomas Huchon that details how Trump’s ascendancy into the White House was based on big money and big data, psychometrics, and fake news.
