Sexism in Hollywood, Working Conditions at LA Nail Salons, and Sports

We start today with the news that the A.C.L.U. is asking state and federal authorities to investigate hiring practices in Hollywood for gender discrimination. What is the A.C.L.U. asking for and what’s it like to be a woman working in Hollywood today? Then, a recent New York Times investigation exposed shocking wage theft, racism and other problems in the nail salon industry. We take a look at the state of the industry in L.A. Next, run-ins between police and people with autism are increasing, but the police often have little or no training for how to identify autism or handle people on the spectrum. Now that’s starting to change. And finally, in our recurring sports segment with the Sklar brothers, we talk “deflategate” and the L.A. Clippers.
