It’s just a smidgen but every time you get a chance to hear about the shake-ups needed in our beloved labor movement, it’s worth saying “yeah, baby”. And, sisters and brothers, we have a double-barreled shot for you today.
I chat first with MaryBe McMillan, the new president of the North Carolina AFL-CIO, about organizing in the south. And, then, a special guest who gives almost no interviews to media, friendly or not, comes by: my old friend Richard Bensinger, the founder of the Organizing Institute and long-time labor organizer, chats about what works and doesn’t in union organizing, the brutality of companies in organizing campaigns and how to make sure companies pay a price when they break the law.
Our Robber Baron of the week is the CEO of Equifax.
