The U.S. manufacturing has been shrinking sharply in recent decades, but it’s not an accident or a historical inevitability. In Episode 4 of the State of Working America Podcast, host Pedro da Costa talks to Mickey Ray Williams, a Firestone plant worker in Gadsden, Alabama, about his experience of over two decades in the sector. The second portion of the show is an interview with Rob Scott, EPI’s director of trade policy.
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.
