3/2 Rebecca Kolins Givan: Labor Organizing After Privatization

March 2, 2017

Jeff Sessions met with the Russian ambassador and lied about it.

Rebecca Kolins Givan, an Associate Professor of Labor Studies and Employment Relations at Rutgers University, explains the thinking behind the push for privatization. Privatizing profit and socializing risk. Finance and making money off of public health services. The Post Office and rural mail delivery. How workers can organize in the face of cost cutting and privatization and the possibility for organizing in spite of the assault on the public sector and the distinct types of union organizing.

On The Fun Half: Jeff Sessions issues a new denial about meeting with Russians. We mock Jeff Sessions. The time Paul Manafort gave a really unconvincing explanation about Russia. Nancy Pelosi says Sessions needs to go. Racism caught on tape. More police brutality and your calls and IMs.
