In the age of COVID-19, Capitalism is a comorbidity. The real disease is our system. And so: Rent Strike! This May Day the entire world will celebrate unions, workers and the right to strike– but not here in America. American labor is never celebrated, it’s only threatened. On today’s show we examine America, a nation created by slavery and now destroyed by a ruling class that misses it.
Guests: New York Times Labor Reporter—Author of “Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, Present & Future of American Labor” Steven Greenhouse; Labor Historian and Author of “Teacher Strike! Public Education and the Making of a New American Political Order” Professor Jon Shelton; First Lady Melania Trump (Played by Martha Previte); Animal Behaviorist Dr. Jennifer Verdolin takes your questions; Author of “Myth And Mayhem: A Leftist Critique of Jordan Peterson” Professor Ben Burgis takes your questions; The Rev. Barry W. Lynn looks back at the week; Comedian Laura House and David answer listener questions.
