On the first half of this week's show, Prof. Wolff discusses labor's gains (Florida and Maine) and losses (the tragic Prop 22 in California), and the refutation of the claim that China's spectacular economic growth is a product of capitalism, not socialism. The second half of the show features an interview with Bob Hennelly, investigative reporter, on labor in the U.S. today with a particular focus on public employees.
