Episode 35: From The Bench and On-Line, Amazon and The Supreme Court Gear Up To Screw The People

In Audio, Economy, Labor, Podcast, Politics by Jonathan Tasini0 Comments

In this week’s podcast, my guests help us understand how Amazon and the Supreme Court have a common mission: to undercut the standard of living of millions of people.

Amazon’s move to buy Whole Foods means a further big-time cutting of wages for thousands of workers, and a new blow to workers in retailing beyond the two companies.

Over at the Supreme Court, the conservative wing—with its majority restored after the confirmation of Justice Gorsuch–is drooling over the prospect of a new case that will cripple public sector unions, and hurt workers everywhere.

Our Robber Baron of the week is, appropriately, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
