Occupy Oakland protesters are calling for a general strike today to bring attention to what they call income inequality perpetuated by the financial industry. Several unions have endorsed the action, but some say their contracts prohibit strikes. Some schools in Oakland are also closing for the day. We discuss the general strike and its potential impact.

Guests:

Angela Woodall, reporter for The Oakland Tribune

Cat Brooks, co-chair of the Onyx Organizing Committee, supporting Occupy Oakland
