Union Investments and Toyota Jobs

Hosted by  • 

Unions are protesting – while at the same time, investing – in Wall Street. LA labor leader Maria Elena Durazo is calling out the city’s pension fund investments in Wal-Mart, saying pension boards should not invest in companies that pay their workers low wages. Meanwhile, Toyota is moving California jobs to Texas, so is it the Golden State’s unfriendly business climate, as Texas Governor Rick Perry claims? Or maybe something else is at play? KCRW's Steve Chiotakis spoke with Dakota Smith from the Daily News, and Tim Logan from the LA Times.
