FROM THIS EPISODE

The union movement is flexing its political muscles in Los Angeles County. The Federation of Labor is telling its 800,000 members that they can determine the winners and losers of local elections.  Total turnout in many districts is so low that union members alone can determine the outcomes. We’ll talk with the head of the Federation and others about what that could mean.  Also tonight, the Bush Administration and sub-prime foreclosures.
