This week’s episode discusses how the French rail strikes protect workers’ gains; how subprime loans are rising as students pay more for college; and how the West Virginia teachers’ strikes are inspiring strikes in Oklahoma, Arizona and Kentucky. We also address the depth of US poverty in comparison with other nations, and explore how high tariffs on imported trucks have created high prices. Also included is an interview with Dr. Harriet Fraad on Stormy Daniels as part of the “winds of change” rising in the US.
