Ideological shift from workers to stockholders

Free Speech TV speaks with Dr. Grieve Chelwa about how corporations have gone from prioritizing workers to stockholders over the years.

The month of October saw wave after wave of strikes breaking out across the US as workers in multiple industries demand better pay, better benefits, and better working conditions. This comes at a time when millions of Americans are leaving the workforce in what is being dubbed "The Great Resignation." Corporate America is dubbing it a "labor shortage," but labor rights activists say that instead, it's a shortage of good wages, affordable childcare, and adequate benefits, and they say workers have had enough.

Our guest today is economist Dr. Grieve Chelwa, Director of Research at the Institute on Race and Political Economy at The New School.

FSTV’s Just Solutions features inspiring conversations with activists, community leaders, and others working to make our world a better place. We discuss the many challenges we are facing, while exploring the solutions emerging from the grassroots.
