Implications of the Supreme Court Ruling Against Unions: Janus V. AFSCME

Today, the Supreme Court issued in Janus v. AFSCME against the unions. This decision has implications for the public sector unions to continue their work advocating for their members and for the ability of workers to organize collectively. To talk about this, host Philip Maldari talks to Ken Jacobs, Chair of the Labor Center at the University of California at Berkeley.

Then, Mitch Jeserich interviewed Omar El Akkad about his book American War: A Novel. The story is set in the future and ask what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies upon itself.
