Verizon Strike and Beyond

program date: 
Mon, 09/05/2011

Speaking with Denise Morris, Mark Brenner of Director of Labor Notes talks a bit about what Labor Notes is and how it involves itself in the labor movement. They spend most of the interview talking about the relevance of 45,000 verizon workers going on strike. Mark explains how this strike and what it was about underscores what is so wrong with our economy today: when corporate profits break records and shareholders receive big bonus dividends, workers are told "there isn't enough". Mark points out why unions can't remain islands in seas of union-hostility and competition from non-union companies.
