Author and investigative journalist, Dave Lindorff joined America’s Work Force Radio and discussed auditing the Pentagon.
Lindorff, who works as a contributing writer for The Nation Magazine, talked about his cover story called The Pentagon’s Massive Accounting Fraud Exposed. He said the Pentagon’s budget is increased every year, but no one knows how the money is being spent, the actual amount spent or how much money the Pentagon needs to operate next year. Lindorff called for an auditing agency to audit the Pentagon from scratch, keep track of every transaction and ensure the American public every dollar is properly spent.
Patrick Gallagher, President of the North Coast Area Labor Federation, also appeared on the Dec. 20 edition of America’s Work Force Radio and spoke about the United Steelworkers newly ratified contract. Gallagher then discussed the AFL-CIO’s push for unions to secure more bargaining power and economic security of the working person. He said men and women ages 18-34 have a 65% approval rating for unions.
