UpFront - Doug Henwood on Unemployment; Idle No More; Homeowners' Bill of Rights

Did fiscal cliff brinksmanship suppress hiring? Doug Henwood joins us to sort out the latest unemployment figures.

Then: the next Occupy Wall Street? A grassroots uprising of indigenous activists called Idle No More has been shutting down malls, railroads, and even a freeway exchange. It started in Canada, and now it's spreading. . . Sonali Kolhatkar talks with AIM co-founder Clyde Bellecourt and activist/comedian Ryan McMahon

Finally: Could new laws save your house? California’s Homeowners Bill of Rights has just taken effect -- we’ll talk to foreclosure fighters from ACCE and Causa Justa::Just Cause about what’s changed, and what hasn’t.
