On Monday, September 24th, we had guest Larry Willis from the Transportation Trades Department on the show. During his time on the show, he discussed outsourcing freight rail jobs and undermining safety and how it is a big mistake. Willis also discussed KCSR’s pending application with the FRA to conduct brake inspections in Mexico, which would eliminate a key safety check before trains cross the border and lay the groundwork for the outsourcing of good, middle-class rail jobs, all while violating federal law. The Transportation Trades Department wrote an article about his time on America’s Workforce Radio and posted it to their website.
Here is a link to the Transportation Trades Department blog on the issues that Larry Willis discussed!
