Professor of Economics, Bill Spriggs at Howard University joins us for our series The Wages of Neglect based on the series by the same name in The American Prospect. Bill talks to us about how the biggest barrier to convincing workers to be pro-union is their lack of empathy for fellow workers and instead having an alliance with their bosses instead.
Part of “The Wages of Neglect”, a series presented with The American Prospect and The Democratic Strategist, focused on the economic abandonment of middle America and its political consequences. The articles and authors featured are on prospect.org. Live Thursdays.
