EPI Policy Director Heidi Shierholz highlights all the ways that labor laws have been employed against workers over the years to curb their power and influence in the labor market. We talk about the fresh wave of strikes around the nation and the renewed excitement around labor organizing, as well as new legislation aimed at restoring some of the worker power that corporations have gradually chipped away.
The State of Working America Podcast is part of EPI’s effort to raise workers’ voices to ensure they are heard in the economic policy debate. Hosted by Pedro da Costa.
Core topics include workers' rights, inequality, race, gender, labor markets, education and immigration, but we're interested in all things related to social justice.
