US Congress Introduces Legislation to Fast-Track TPP

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 04/16/2015
Top Congressional legislators reached a deal earlier today to introduce fast-track legislation of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to Congress.
As the ranking Democrat on the Finance Panel, Oregon Senator Ron Wyden was crucial in reaching an agreement between Republicans and Democrats drafting the legislation.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership would be the world’s largest free trade agreement, involving the United States, Canada, Mexico, Vietnam, Japan, and seven other Pacific-rim countries.
It is heavily opposed by environmental groups, American labor unions such as the AFL-CIO, as well as human rights advocates.
The Oregon chapter of the AFL-CIO has staged multiple protests calling for lawmakers to reject the trade deal. 6:44 minutes (6.16 MB)

Crummy Jobs

program date: 
Mon, 04/13/2015

Joe Clement reads an article by Dylan Matthews titled "Is The Future Of America A Crummy Service Job Stamping On A Human Face, Forever?" He considers how Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton both approach the economy in much the same way: make sure that there's a ready supply of people willing to take jobs when most of the new jobs created are low-wage, low-skill, and inconsistently scheduled. He argues that the more ethical and economically rational answer to "the jobs question" is a basic income. [Image from here] 8:07 minutes (3.72 MB)
