Wake Up and Smell The Boot Polish

Tue, 11/10/2009

 Hosted by Abe Proctor and Joe Uris

 Today, Joe is by himself, and he opens the show with a reading of an article from August of 1993 that was printed in a small independent rag called PDXS.  The article was entitled "Wake Up And Smell The Boot Polish," and warned us of a pending Fascist State looming on the horizon.  Amazingly, the article could have been written yesterday, and inspired quite the flurry of calls.

Tonight's show is about employers who seize the current economic crisis as an opportunity to pit working people against each other and undermine longstanding union rights.
