The country has been transfixed by the courageous resistance of public employees' unions – in Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio and other places – as their basic rights have come under attack by politicians trying to enforce a radical right-wing agenda. We'll discuss those resistance efforts and what the right-wing is really after. We'll also look into other major issues affecting – and all of the rest of us, as well – such as the continuing wretched state of the economy, upcoming “free” trade agreements, issues before Congress, and the future of the labor movement itself.I phoned up to express my dismay toward the disable and the needy.
