This is an extremely valuable radio talk given by political economist Jack Rasmus on the state of the labor in the US. The beginning of the show covers the history of the labor movement for the last hundred years. Contemporary topics include the Amazon and Starbucks workers’ movement and their ups and downs. Also addressed is the collective bargaining going on with the US railroad workers and the West Coast longshoreman dock workers – which has been blacked out in the US media.
