Episode Details

Original tape date: November 25, 2003.

Moderator Bob Liff sits down with a panel of experts to discuss working class politics in the 21st century. Topics include the importance of unions and whether they are more essential now due to our emergence into a more technological era or whether they have run their course as younger workers and immigrants begin to play a more pivotal role in the workforce and view unions simply as another quasi-governmental impediment.
