GRITtv With Laura Flanders Live Now: The State of Working America
Labor unions were a big part of Barack Obama's victory. What would they like to see from the president elect? Universal healthcare for one and a huge stimulus package might be starting points. There's also the Employee Free Choice Act, which would make it easier for unions to organize. Perhaps as a measure of how ambitious the effort will be, the anti-union and pro-business Chamber of Commerce said: "This will be Armageddon." But will Obama be able to turn around the decades long decline in union membership? And will unions have a role in reshaping American capitalism?
GRITtv With Laura Flanders Live Now: Flanders speaks with Ed Ott, Greg Denier and Bhairavi Desai on labor issues.
