Jutri bodo v ZDA potekale predsedniške volitve, mi pa do takrat priporočamo v poslušanje delavski podkast Belabored (via Dissent Magazine) oziroma njegovo najnovejšo epizodo o tem, ali je Donald Trump izpolnil svoje visokoleteče obljube o novih delovnih mestih, ki naj bi jih pripeljal v številne (nekdaj) industrijske predele Amerike ali ne.
“Donald Trump won the presidency on naked white nationalist appeals to the worst in America; that is absolutely true. But four years ago he also ran on a message of hope: he promised to bring industrial jobs back to the places that had been shedding them for years. We followed up with some of the workers and union leaders from some of those plants to see what the feeling is. As Trump and Pence bluster about saving jobs, about Carrier and Lordstown “booming,” what’s it really like? We spoke with Chuck Jones, formerly president of United Steelworkers Local 1999 in Indianapolis, which represents workers at Carrier and Rexnord, Shannon Mulcahy, a former Rexnord worker and now an activist with Our Revolution, and Tim O’Hara, former president of United Autoworkers Local 1112 in Ohio and former Lordstown autoworker.”
