Arizona’s on our mind as we talk about the self-driving Uber car that killed a woman last week and the Phoenix teachers walk-out at nine elementary schools. We do a deep dive on Trump’s tariffs and anti-China trade measures, explaining why this actually hurts the working class and only helps the bosses.
We’ve got a new segment where we rip apart this crappy anti-worker meme and talk about the Fight for $15/Hour.
There’s a UPS contract update in here too. We riff on the Toys-R-Us bankruptcy and a recent public sector union strike in France. And we name our Working Class Hero and Ruling Class Asshole of the week.
Strike fever continues as the squad talks about the Jersey City Teachers strike last week, billionaires, and Florida public sector unions fighting against decertification.
We’re joined by AFSCME Council 79 union representative and Jacksonville Community Action Committee co-founder Michael Sampson (@BrotherFlourish on Twitter), who offers some insight on why and how the working class should fight against racism. And we roast a certain National Review article calling for public-sector unions to “be destroyed.” Stay tuned for our Working Class Hero and Ruling Class Asshole of the week at the end.
We’re back for Season 2 to talk about the strike fever that’s sweeping the nation’s teachers – from West Virginia to Oklahoma. We talk about Teamsters United’s recent steward victories in Jacksonville, FL, and International Working Women’s Day. We take a look at the looming economic crash coming in the near future, roast scabs like Mark Janus, and name our Ruling Class Asshole of the week.
