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.
Dave & Dustin interview Fred Zuckerman, president of Teamsters Local 89 and last year’s Teamsters United candidate for General President, on the Worker Power Hour. We talk everything Teamsters – the UPS contract fight, the pension crisis, organizing Amazon, hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, and taking a stand against white supremacists.
We also interview Kas Schwerdtfeger, package car driver and Teamsters Local 344 shop steward, about the new Amazon Key delivery program and the future of the Teamsters.
Part 1 of our two-part Worker Power Hour special at the Teamsters for a Democratic Union convention in Chicago.
Dave, DP and Christina are back after Hurricane Irma. The #TakeAKnee protests in the NFL, Teamster-UPS contract negotiations and Trump’s genocidal threats at the UN are all on the table. They also talk about the continued fight for community control of the police and name this week’s Working Class Hero and Ruling Class Asshole.
