This is the full 3-14-11 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
The great labor uprising in Wisconsin continues even after Governor Walker took what many are calling illegal measures to push through his anti-union law. And the labor rebellion continues to spread to other states. We will bring you audio from Indianapolis and Madison were major labor protests were held last week.
We’ll also hear from those who argue it is time for a general strike in Wisconsin.
And in our ongoing effort to place these events in their broader historic context, I will air an interview I conducted with progressive activist Robert Creamer, who wrote a recent article for the Huffington Post entitled… Why Americans Need Unions Now More Than Ever
