Today on the show we had Darryll Bell and Steve Campisi, stewards and political coordinators of AFGE Local 31 in the studio with us, and also Senator Sherrod Brown. While on the show, Darryll and Steve talked about the American Federation of Government Employees, working with the Cleveland VA Medical Center, the VA accountability act, being Air Force Veterans, veteran homelessness, the three executive orders that sought to undermine the representation of unions with their employees, and Federal employee wage raises. Senator Sherrod Brown discussed jobs in Ohio, American Jobs Act and keeping automotive production in the United States, NAFTA negotiations, labor enforcement, and the Firefighter Registry Cancer Act. We also discuss the op-ed article submitted to the New York Times by a member of the White House Administration about President Trump and how he demands that he either come forward or be turned over by the NYT! Hot topics of discussion from the last couple of weeks and more unique, insightful views to go along with them!
