Current issues

Today we'll hear a recent program from the series Making Contact. It features Matthew Rothschild of Progressive Radio interviewing labor leader and author Bill Fletcher Jr.

Unions are getting weaker. Legislation passed in Wisconsin in 2011, and Michigan in 2012 struck at the heart of their traditional member base. Even more threatening, says Bill Fletcher Jr., the general public no longer understands or supports organized labor. This program explores why working Americans and unions have lost touch with one another and what might be done to turn that around.
