3/29 The Rise of the Working-Class Shareholder w/ David H. Webber

March 29, 2018

David Webber joins us to discuss his new book, The Rise of the Working-Class Shareholder: Labor’s Last Best Weapon. 

In The Rise of the Working-Class Shareholder: Labor’s Last Best Weapon, David Webber uses cases such as Safeway’s to shine a light on labor’s most potent remaining weapon: its multitrillion-dollar pension funds. Outmaneuvered at the bargaining table and under constant assault in Washington, state houses, and the courts, worker organizations are beginning to exercise muscle through markets.

On the fun half – Sam Harris is frustrated publishing his meltdown in an email exchange with Ezra Klein failed to convince people he’s the most rational, Geraldo talks about whether he still talks with Bill O’Reilly, a caller defends Turkey, what does it mean that America can’t police the world anymore, Tucker Carlson is worried about the decline of men still, Stuart Varney and Fox & Friends wonder why people are jealous of banker bonuses, and your calls an IMs.
