What do Wal-Mart, Twinkies and the state of Michigan have in common? Union activist and author Steve Early is in studio this hour to join Angie in a rotating panel on union activity in the news. First, Raymond Bravo, a Walmart worker who protested on Black Friday, talks about OUR Walmart, worker int imidation and what exactly went on during the protest. Then Harold Miller of the New York Communities for Change joins by phone to explain the fast food strikes in New York and the community response. Plus, our demented sidekick Buttercup shares her corkscrew views on Sheldon Adelson’s crusade against unions, ACORN’s rise from the dead to steal the election, and Paul Ryan’s rally violation.
