Labor Vs Capital Struggle in the US Intensifies

Economic Update

In this week’s Economic Update, Professor Richard Wolff discusses The Washington Post’s exposure of the corporate rich sponsoring police repression against student protests and how Boeing rewards CEOs while it exhibits the airlines’ worst safety record. In addition, the UAW loses union election as German capitalists and southern governors join forces to intimidate workers with job threats.

Finally, we highlight why mass public transport is a better alternative to gas-powered vehicles than electric vehicles.

We end our show with an interview David Van Deusen, a socialist and leader of Vermont AFL-CIO.
