program date: 
Mon, 07/07/2014
Well-read Red, Clayton Morgareidge, continues a theme he spoke about a few weeks ago concerning "stagnant capitalism" and connects it to a recent Jacobin article by Richard Seymour. Seymour's article critiques an article in the popular magainze, The Economist, for pandering to what he calls "a very neoliberal way of thinking" when it acknowledges immense private profit/surplus/capital while also lamenting crumbling infrastructure and other responsibilities of the cash-strapped public sector. 6:14 minutes (4.28 MB)

The $15 Minimum Wage And The Fight Beyond

program date: 
Mon, 07/07/2014
Bill Resnick talks with Arun Gupta about how the $15 minimum wage ordinance that was recently passed by the City Council in Seattle came to be. Arun points out how people are agitated by the bank-bailouts, the role played by Socialist Alternative and Kshama Sawant's election to the City Council, the contentiousness about and limitations to the final ordinance. They also consider what kind of organizing is or is not behind getting the ordinance passed. In this vein, they talk about "militant shopfloor organizing" vs. electoral organizing, the role played by independent media, weilding control at the "point of production, and the problem of finding solidarity as "all that is solid melts into air."
