May Day Rally NYC 2017

People die at work, and people revolt and organize. All in sharp focus the last few days, I looked at the toll at work of sick, injured and killed workers—and why we mark Workers Memorial Day every April 29th—as well as the May Day mobilization that makes us consider how to change the system.

I had an in-depth chat with Tefere Gebre, the Executive Vice President of the AFL-CIO—the first immigrant, political refugee, black man and local labor council leader elected as a national officer of the Federation.

And we go back to Mylan Corporation to find our Robber Baron of the week, the outgoing chairman Robert Coury who has pocketed tens of millions of dollars.
