Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law
Health and Health Care Forum

Dr. Vern Saboe talks with host host Roberta Hall about injured workers' rights, specifically, the right under Oregon law to choose what treatment provider s/he sees after an injury on the job. In some cases, injured workers do not know their rights and are sent directly to a clinic of the employer’s choosing. We discuss a proposed legislative remedy and how this remedy has been blocked when it has come before the legislature in the past. In this discussion we learn about a means by which the will of legislators, and by extension the will of the people who elect them, can be circumvented, not just in this type of case but perhaps others as well.

Download:
On this KBOO exclusive, we speak with Stanley Cohen, the lifelong activist lawyer whose commitment to justice has brought him to odds with the US government on more than one occasion.

This time, however, Stanley found himself in the position of having to coordinate with State Department officials when he traveled to Jordan in October as a private individual to try to secure the release of Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, who had been taken hostage by ISIS.

Whether the Jordanian government intentionally mis-led their powerful U.S. ally, or the U.S. had no intention of allowing it, the release effort was sabotaged when Jordan arrested one of those involved.  Soon after that sabotage, Kassig was killed by his captors.

Juliet Schor and PLENITUDE: The New Economics of True Wealth

program: 
Radiozine
program date: 
Mon, 05/24/2010

Hosted By Michelle Shhroeder Fletcher

Juliet Schor talks about her latest book, PLENITUDE: The New Economics of True Wealth. Schor argues that the old way out of an economic downturn―a debt-financed consumer boom―is no longer a viable option.

Suggesting a radical shift in how we think about consumer goods, value, and ways to live, PLENITUDE is a primer for transitioning toward a sustainable economy as well as a richer, more balanced life. Though Schor stresses making environmentally sound choices, she has not written a polemic on sacrifice: rather she contends that through new sources of wealth, green technologies, and different lifestyles, individuals and the country as a whole can actually be better off and more economically secure. 
 

Juliet B. Schor’s research has focused on the economics of work, spending, environment, and the consumer culture. She is the author of Born to Buy, The Overworked American, and The Overspent American. Schor is a professor of sociology at Boston College, a former member of the Harvard economics department, and a Guggenheim Fellowship recipient. She is also a cofounder of the Center for a New American Dream, an organization devoted to ecologically and socially sustainable lifestyles
