Labor action in a crisis

One of the best positives of this crisis is that the US labor movement is filled with actions. There have been more than 170 labor actions since the beginning of March according to the website Payday Reports. We’ve also learned that the most essential workers are the people earning the least money in massive corporations. So, now people are calling for a general strike. In other news, there was another failed coup in Venezuela with US-backing, the future of millions of hogs is up in the air as the meat industry gets hit hard by the coronavirus, and more.

Naomi Karavani reports on the latest effort from the DNC to sell this country out to the wealthy. The newest bill even includes a bailout for lobbyists. That’s right, the people corporations use to corrupt our system of government might receive more of a bailout than regular people. Natalie McGill and Lee go over several stories including an attack on ocean ecosystem protection, oil and gas companies getting bailed out further by the Federal Reserve, and more.
