Bill Resnick talk with Sam Gidin in this second of a two-part interview. They consider why working class resistance during the current crisis has been insufficient to prevail over the maneuvers of the ruling apparatuses, and what’s the long term strategy/vision to build power.
Joe Clement talks with Emmit Nolan and Marie, members of the Portland IWW, about their Paid Sick Days Now! campaign. In addition to the October 6th rally at Holiday Park, they discuss the problem of workers coming into work sick because they have no other choice, the failure of legislative approaches to addressing the need for Paid Sick Days, and their expansive vision of sick days that includes preventative and self-care.
