Bill Barry, retired Director of Labor Studies at the Community College of Baltimore County joins Rick to discuss the importance of remembering the Great Railroad Strike of 1877, the lessons of past organizing and workers actions are relevant for today’s worker’s struggles, and to promote the celebration of the anniversary of the start of the strike in Baltimore.

Ronald Baker, BCTGM International Union Strategic Campaign Coordinator joins Rick to discuss the recent PBS Front Page documentary that focuses on the ongoing struggle of his organization’s members at Mondelez/Nabisco, the corporate greed that has a strangle hold on America’s workplaces, and pain felt by workers and communities in the wake of these corporations abandoning them for cheap exploitable labor elsewhere.

 

Sam Berger, Senior Policy Adviser at the Center for American Progress joins Rick to discuss the latest attempt by Republicans to #RepealandReplace #ObamaCare.  With this third swing will the GOP finally sit down or do their bad ideas never run out of third strikes.
