Josh Nassar of the United Auto Workers on America’s Work Force Radio

Josh Nassar from the United Auto Workers and Amy Hanauer from Policy Matters Ohio were featured on America’s Work Force Radio.

UAW

On Oct. 11, Josh Nassar was the first featured guest on the show. He discussed Brett Kavanaugh and how he is worried about the possibility of abuse power that Justice Kavanaugh could potentially have. Nassar also discusses the push to make Union picketing illegal and current developments on the United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA). The USMCA talks about giving workers the right to strike, the freedom of association, and the right to collective bargaining. One thing that people are unhappy about in the USMCA is that it does not do anything to keep call center jobs in the United States.

Policy Matters Ohio

Our second guest Amy Hanauer discusses drug addiction services and treatment over incarceration. She talks about how reducing the incarceration of drug users will increase the resources that could be spent on comprehensive drug treatment, rather than having the drug abuser sit in prison, not get any treatment, and come back out still with an addiction. Hanauer says that incarcerating these drug users is ruining their relationships, their chances of getting jobs once they come back out, and more importantly they are ruining their lives. By receiving drug treatment rather than being incarcerated, they could come back and become a productive member of society again, and it would be cheaper to tax payers.

Ed “Flash” Ferenc also talk about Elon Musk and current problems over at the Tesla factory and its sweatshop conditions, the USMCA raising wages to $16 an hour in Mexico, and President Trump’s National Relation Board putting limits on picketing, possibly making it illegal in some areas, and also how Ohio voters are getting purged.

On the broadcast today we had writer, editor, and researcher Tim Tolka, and contributing writer to The Prospect, David Dayen.

Our second guest, David Dayen talks about Tesla, the workers and the wages that they are making, how Tesla is the only United States car manufacturer that is non-Union, the high cost of living around the factory and how it is forcing the workers to have to live further than desirable away from their work, and Elon Musk and his promises to the workers (that do not include wage increases).
