May 17, 2024 Well … the GOP is running against Democrats, and certainly against Biden, but recently it also looks like they’re running against reality itself. Asking questions like “Are you better off than you were four years ago,” the GOP seems to be trying to convince voters that 4 years of absolute chaos and criminality, punctuated by a failed response to Covid that caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans … never happened. We discuss this ridiculous strategy and more with guests Lynn Rhinehart of The Economic Policy Institute, and Lee McNamara of the Culinary Union Local 226.

May 16, 2024 Joe Biden just announced a number of new tariffs on Chinese goods, but no one is hearing about it because corporate media is busy cashing in on tangerine-flavored courtroom drama. There’s also a monumentally important union vote going on at Mercedes in Alabama, and teachers are busy giving away books at a time when radicals are trying to ban them. Once again, corporate media is busy giving us the same hour of clickbait 24 times in a row. These stories and more with our guests: Saru Jayaraman of One Fair Wage, and Randi Weingarten, President of the American Federation of Teachers.

May 15, 2024 Infrastructure is more than bridges and potholes. It’s how we keep up in a very competitive world, and it’s about creating better lives for American families. It’s also the difference between saying and doing, as the last administration talked about it endlessly but did nothing, while the Biden administration got the legislation passed in very difficult circumstances and put America to work. We discuss this and more with today’s guests – Scott Paul of The Alliance for American Manufacturing, and Irene Tung of The National Employment Law Project.

May 14, 2024 Every election cycle, we see the same thing over and over. The right floods the zone with fiction, and the left can’t get off the couch for long enough to compete.

May 13, 2024 Well, the Republicans are impeaching Biden again, though no one knows why, and Trump just tried to sell the planet to Big Oil for a billion in campaign cash. These stories are so strange they shouldn’t be true, but when right-wing media is running the show, every day is a bit crazier than the last. We’ll talk about these stories and more with today’s guests – Liliana Calderon of International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, and Journalist Sarah Burris of Raw Story.

May 10, 2024 Earlier this week, Joe Biden went to Racine, Wisconsin, to the site of Trump’s failed Foxconn disaster, to announce a $3.3 billion investment by Microsoft that will bring the jobs to the area that Trump promised but never delivered. It’s just another example of the difference between saying something and doing something. Today’s guest is Corey Hill, President of UAW Local 3250.

May 9, 2024 On today’s show, we start with a discussion of child labor in America. In its never-ending search for cheap exploitable workers, corporate America has used its stable of GOP legislators to weaken child labor laws in many states and find ways to get around existing laws in order to force kids into dangerous industrial jobs. We discuss this and more with our guests: Greg Regan of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO, and former GOP Congressman Bob Ney.

May 8, 2024 We’ve done it. We’ve finally done it. For the first time in American history, the wealth class now pays a lower tax rate than the working class. Now we just have to wait for all the wealth we simply give the rich to “trickle down” to the rest of us.

In fact, so much of what comes from the right these days is just carefully chosen lies. On today’s show, we discuss why this is the case, and what we can do about it.

May 3, 2024 Simply put, America is getting tired of the Trump sideshow. As he whines about being held accountable for crimes he thinks only the rest of us should pay for, and as he grifts ceaselessly because he needs the cash – most of us are simply tuning out. And that’s dangerous, because if he wins, it’s going to be much worse that it was last time.

April 30, 2024 Are we becoming accustomed to corruption in our politics? Are we so divided that we can no longer make judgements based on our values and sense of right and wrong?

We now understand that trickle down economics doesn’t work, and the jobs that were given away to China need to come home again. But how do we do it? We discuss these issues against a backdrop of rising divisions in America, and how we can bring people together around the idea that one good job is all a family should need.

April 26, 2024 The Biden Administration just changed the overtime rules in a way that will make millions of abused workers eligible for overtime pay that corporations had previously stolen from them. It’s a small change with massive impact, and it will most often affect lower wage workers who often work way over 40 hours in a week without any overtime pay. We discuss this change, and also get into the subject of price gouging with Bilal Baydoun of The Groundwork Collaborative, and other relevant labor news with Michael Sainato of The Guardian.

April 23, 2024 Late last week, workers at Volkswagen voted in a union for the first time, joining the UAW. It was a historic vote for a number of reasons; over 70% of the employees chose to vote Union Yes, and they did so in one of the most union-hostile places on planet Earth – the state of Tennessee. Could this be the beginning of a labor resurgence in America? We think so, and today’s guests think so, too.

But unlike previous generations, this one isn’t “really” retiring, with 62% staying in the workforce due to the fact they don’t have the financial security to retire fully.
