Episode 7 of the For A Living Podcast is now available on SoundCloud and on iTunes.
What if American labor unions had been less membership-driven and more active on broader social and economic issues? Would the United States have a workers’ party? What public policies would we have today? The episode also discusses the Women’s March on Washington and the general lack of a union presence at the marches. Finally, the episode transitions from thinking about “what if?” to pondering “what now?” Please join Professor Robert Bruno, Professor Emily E. LB Twarog, and Frank Manzo IV in discussing these topics.
Mentioned in the episode: “Guiding Vision and Definition of Principles” for the Women’s March on Washington.
