This week’s episode discusses a UN report on poverty in the US, Oreos being produced in Mexico, US households having zero or negative net worth, Germany’s negative utility prices and bold labor strikes, Iceland’s law on equal pay for equal work, the myth of US economic “recovery,” and how Canada’s Tim Horton is sabotaging the prospect of raising the minimum wage. Also included is an interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad on the US opioid crisis.
