[Act Out! 161] -Grandmas in the Gutter, The Hidden Employment Stats & Puerto Rico’s Ongoing Disaster

This week on Act Out! UC workers strike but find a foe where the friendlies should be – an unfortunately familiar story. Next up, unemployment rates may be going down but what does that actually mean? Hint: no, our economy is not doing well. And neither are the soon-to-be-homeless elderly of Louisiana – because you know, budget cuts – and screw grandma. --- Finally, Alex Cohen of Earth Defense Coalition joins us to talk Puerto Rico – a colony wrestling with both climate change and colonial capitalism – and what aid and autonomy look like on the ground.
