Mon, 07/18/2011

Bill Resnick talks with Andrew Sernatinger, a baker, activist, and labor-organizer in Madison, Wisconsin about the class struggle there.  What is left out of the mainstream conversations is progressive taxation, while Democrats appear on the side of unions mostly for their campaign contributions. Sernatinger has hopeful news about the multitude of radical progressive organizations who are keeping the focus on Wall Street and the role of tax breaks in the so-called budget crisis.  Following the interview, host Laurie Mercier provides even more  recent news from  Sernatinger about the changing political situation.

 "What could a telecom merger mean for economic democracy?" asks  Josh Eidelson in an article published in Dissent.  AT&T is merging with T-Mobile.  Is that a bad thing because it limits competition in a communications industry?  Or a good thing because AT&T is a union shop and T-Mobile is not?  Eidelson argues the latter in this piece, read and commented on here by the Old Mole's Joe Clement.  For an opinion piece that attacks progressives for suppporting the merger, check out this NY Times editorial.
