With public approval of unions at its highest since 1965, organizing drives bringing in 200,000 new union members, union election petitions to the NLRB up 51 percent, 60 million workers who want a union, and low unemployment spurring strike actions and gains in wages and benefits, many have declared that labor is on the rise. Yet in 2022, the overall share of workers who are union members declined from 10.3 to 10.1 percent. And the Supreme Court stands ready to significantly curtail workers' right to strike. Ep 11 takes a close look at the obstacles and opportunities for Labor as we head into 2023.

With a White House and NLRB that are more pro-labor than most recent past administrations, a “labor renaissance” will be the overarching theme of 2023. Jackson Lewis principals Laura A. Pierson-Scheinberg and Felice B. Ekelman discuss what employers could or should do, especially since the “renaissance” is less governmental and more groundswell.

Strippers on Strike! Unionizing the Star Garden Topless Dive Bar

Reagan and Velveeta have been working with fellow dancers to unionize the Star Garden Topless Dive Bar. While the club is contesting the results of their union vote from back in November, it looks like these ladies will succeed in forming the only stripper union in America! This will be the second unionized strip club in the history of the country, the first being the Lusty Lady in San Francisco which closed in 2013. We discuss the physical harassment and other unsafe working conditions that drove the Star Garden dancers to unionize. After petitioning their employer, 18 dancers were locked out of their workplace in March of ‘22. As a result, the women were driven to escalate their tactics to striking and picketing in front of the club. They've since collected union cards and voted in an official union election. Moving forward, the Actors Equity Association will assist these women as they bargain for a contract. To raise money for the out-of-work dancers on strike, Reagan and Velveeta and some other dancers in the community have been using a side project, the Stripper Co-Op, to put on brilliantly unique and vibrant pop-up strip shows at various venues. The money raised through the Co-Op is distributed fairly amongst the strippers, and they also donate a portion to mutual aid. Donations made between the Stripper Co-Op and its previous virtual iteration, the Cyber Clown Girls, total over $50,000 from May 2020 to the present to over 100 different orgs. The Stripper Co-Op was also inspired by the worker-owned Lusty Lady.Follow @stripperstrikenoho on Instagram and Twitter! @stripstrikenohoPlease support their strike fund here! Sign their petition for safety here!You can also follow their Stripper Co-op on Instagram: @stripperco_op or Shoutout to @jessejamz for crafting the lovely fancy version of the Stripper Strike cocktail!

Sam breaks down the biggest headlines of the day. First, Sam runs through updates on the passing of the new rules package, the reveal that current president Biden has classified documents, Lina Khan and the FTC investigation into price discrimination, and environmental updates on California and our planet's ozone, before diving into Katie Porter's announcement that she will be running to take over Dianne Feinstein's empty seat. Sam and the MR Crew then dive into updates on day 2 of the New York City nurses' strike, as masses gather to support care workers exercising their labor leverage, and discuss perspectives from Representatives Ilhan Omar and Michael Waltz on the GOP's platform in the wake of finally electing McCarthy speaker, including the ever-important de-wokification of the US military. They wrap up the free half by walking through the upcoming Supreme Court case Glaciers North West v. Teamsters, how the Supreme Court can use it to try and cripple labor action, and why the US loves requiring labor while not requiring the payment for it, before diving into updates to Biden's student loan relief, and why it would be a lot easier to just wipe it out. And in the Fun Half: Sam gives his takes on nuclear power, Tucker Carlson takes on the legitimacy of Glenn's biggest moment as a solo journalist, and Ben Shapiro walks through his exact equation for a ruler's legitimacy, which totally has nothing to do with his own impotence affecting the dynamics of the Shapiro household.

The topic can be overwhelming, but stick around until the end, and if Phil and Burt don't make you smile, drop us a note and we'll make it right! Lawyer on the Clock:   4:44 - The Department of Labor has at least 52,644 comments to comb through regarding a new proposed rule on independent contractor classification.    7:40 - National Labor Relations Board news. The NLRB has a new weapon in its arsenal for going after employers and to discourage unfair labor practice charges. Plus, the NLRB also has proposed rule changes that are going to make union organizing a little bit easier.   11:35 - News Year, New Laws in Illinois, including expanding the protections afforded under what was called the Child Bereavement Leave Act, and broadening the scope of the Illinois Human Rights Act.   Philburt's Phorum:    16:51 - Fun with social media memes.    The Employer's Lounge   19:15 - Poll results: What is your number one concern related to social media and the workplace?   22:45 - Employer rights when it comes to social media.   24:33 - Question from Paul: Am I obligated to investigate a questionable post brought to me by an employee about another employee?

We start this week's episode with some sad news, as the South Korean truckers have been forced to end their strike after weeks of vicious government repression. Also this week the NLRB ruled that Apple has been breaking the law with its Starbucks-inspired union busting campaigns at its retail stores. Minnesota nurses have called off their potential strike after tentatively agreeing to a new contract with safe staffing measures for the first time. About a quarter of the striking workers at UC ratified new contracts this week but the majority have stayed out, escalating tactics in response to the intransigence of the administration. The strike at the New School ended this weekend after solidarity between faculty and students forced the school administrators to concede to the workers' demands. Grad students at BU became the latest group of academic workers to unionize this week. Workers also voted overwhelmingly to unionize at the Ultium Cells electric car battery factory in Warren, OH this week. We are getting the first test of Microsoft's "neutrality agreement" with the CWA as QA testers at ZeniMax are aiming to build the largest union within a major games publisher in the country. Workers at Disney World are struggling for a new contract as their low wages leave a majority unable to pay their bills, causing many to have to live out of their cars. And finally, this week marks the 1 year anniversary of the first successfully unionized Starbucks, as the movement has exploded to cover over 7000 workers.

Hello from the picket lines! This week, Jay and Tammy report on labor actions on the streets of Berkeley and Seoul. [4:30] First, Jay tells us what he's heard from striking student workers at the University of California. More than forty-five thousand UAW union members are drawing attention to their financial precarity and austerity in academia. We parse the possible fault lines among this remarkably large group of workers: the relative resources and prestige of different UC campuses, disciplinary biases, and disparate access to jobs after graduation. Why should we believe universities' pleas of poverty, when their money so clearly goes to bloated administrative positions, campus police, and extravagant sports facilities? [38:58] We also discuss strikes at Starbucks, The New School, and HarperCollins, and the revived possibility of a rail strike next month. Something's clearly in the air—will US labor law and the NLRB limit or bolster worker power? [45:27] Next, Tammy fills us in on the annual labor rally in Seoul, which, this year, targeted President Yoon Suk Yeol's malfeasance and the mass deaths in Itaewon. As the new administration promises to concentrate wealth even further and avoids interacting with the public, how should the Korean working class respond? What kind of government is the Yoon administration, and what is the government for, anyway? [53:02] Lastly, we remember Staughton Lynd, a key leftist intellectual and organizer who passed away last week. Lynd and his wife, Alice, were key figures in movements for civil rights and labor and against incarceration and war. RIP. Next week, we'll be taking a break from recording. Our next episode will be a live recording with Hua Hsu, so be sure to pick up his book—and please join us in person next week, if you're in NYC! This is a public episode.

The National Labor Relations Board is a federal agency tasked with making sure workers can organize to improve their working conditions, wages or form a union. But the NLRB says some employers are using technology to prevent or discourage workers from doing just that. The agency released a public memo on Oct. 31 saying it plans to protect employees from “intrusive or abusive electronic monitoring and automated management,” practices the NLRB says are increasingly happening as the technology gets better and companies seek more oversight of their workers, especially with more people working remotely.

2959 - Constitutional Amendment To Ensure Workers Rights In Illinois; Leveraging Industrial Policy For Unions w/ Tim Drea & Lee Harris

Sam hosts Tim Drea, President of the Illinois AFL-CIO, to discuss the Workers Rights Amendment that is on the state ballot next Tuesday. Then he is joined by Lee Harris, reporter at The American Prospect, to discuss her recent piece "Industrial Policy Without Industrial Unions". Sam begins by running through updates on charges against CVS and Wallgreens in an opioid lawsuit, the GOP continuing to lead polling for the House, the NLRB's response to Starbucks union busting in Ithaca, and Bibi returning to the top of Israeli politics, before diving deeper into Joe Biden's recent highlighting of the GOP's stances on Social Security and Medicare in his campaigning. Then Tim Drea joins as he and Sam dive right into what the Workers Rights Amendment in Illinois entails, working through the right to a safe workplace and worker safety alongside securing the right to bargain, before diving into why the WRA is necessary with the rising trend of state-level attacks on workers rights already having come to Illinois, with the labor-supporting legislature successfully fighting off Bruce Rauner's union-busting policy. After a greater discussion on Illinois as an epicenter for labor organizing in the US, Tim and Sam walk through the various fights the Illinois AFL-CIO is engaged in, and why you can't favor creating jobs over making sure that the workers come home from them. Lee Harris then joins as she and Sam tackle the recent Inflation Reduction Act's role in bolstering US industrial policy, exploring why industrial policy is important in a shift away from the neoliberal reliance on the free market, and why, despite that, a focus on ensuring these are unionized and well-paying industrial jobs is a necessary step. They parse through the recent job creation via the CHIPS act and the IRA, discussing how the varying support for labor across US states creates a race to the bottom to secure funding, and how private companies are already looking to get around any vague requirements for decent worker treatment. Wrapping up the interview, they explore the Biden Administration's failure to properly address certain labor scandals, and discuss what can actually be done to help bolster the state of labor in this country. And in the Fun Half: Sam discusses Samuel Alito's recent attempt to use the ol' Elizabeth Warren tactic as an excuse to undermine affirmative action, Paul from Illinois discusses bail reform, and Ben Shapiro discusses why it was wrong, not bad for Candace Owens to defend the bad AND wrong things that Kanye West was saying. Connor for Kentucky calls in about his campaign for KY's 5th Congressional District, Glenn Greenwald appears on Tucker just in time to not address the myriad lies Tucker has been spreading that directly involve Glenn's own reporting, and Ed from Oregon discusses the success of push-pull tactics on the right. Dennis Prager explores the complexity of lesbians and the simplicity of gay men, and Ross from Florida discusses discourse around Ukraine, plus, your calls and IMs!
