UpFront - Drones, Castlewood, Vote Suppression

Startling new figures on how many civilians are dying in US drone strikes -- Sonali Kolhatkar interviews independent journalist Gareth Porter. Plus: If you clean rooms in a hotel, you’re entitled to meal breaks, minimum wage, and overtime pay. But if you clean rooms in someone’s house . . . not so much -- David Bacon interviews a house-cleaner about the push to win a Domestic Workers Bill of Rights before the legislature ends its session. Also: a look at vote-suppression efforts across the country, and a ruling by the National Labor Relations Board may end a lockout that’s run longer than the siege of Leningrad.
