The gig economy is a trap

Lee Camp exposes the exploitation that holds the gig economy together. One-third of US citizens work within the gig economy and its practical impact is to increase the precarious situation of American workers. The system guts many of the protections that people had come to expect from their jobs and that’s exactly why the rich love it. Camp then reports on Cornel West’s decision to leave Harvard, billionaire Richard Branson’s trip to space, the FBI’s role in spreading terrorism, and more.

Anders Lee reports on Chicago’s school system, which is in the pockets of the school privatization movement and the results haven’t been positive for most students. There’s now pushback from the public who want to return their education system into the hands of a public school board. Naomi Karavani sits down with Camp to discuss the Cuban protest movement being bolstered in US media.
