The campaign to free Jessica Reznicek, Walmart struggles to find workers

Lee Camp interviews Monty Pinger. He is one of the lead organizers of the campaign to free the climate activist Jessica Reznicek. Reznicek had admitted to destroying pipeline equipment being used to build the Dakota Access Pipeline. She committed her act of nonviolent civil disobedience in order to protect the land and water from industrial pollution and to stand in solidarity with the NODAPL resistance camps. She received an eight-year sentence under terrorism charges, in a chilling sign for the future of resistance to the fossil fuel industry.

Naomi Karavani reports on Walmart's response to its inability to find enough workers. In the wake of the covid pandemic the corporate media focused on a "labor shortage" narrative that blamed unemployment benefits for workers' hesitance to return to low-wage jobs. Their narrative tried to hide that workers just didn't want to work for low wages. Well-paying jobs weren't generating the same labor issues, and now Walmart's owners have taken several, weak, steps to try to attract workers back into their soul-destroying stores.
