The Rick Smith Show - 03/21/18

Dan Vicuna, National Redistricting Manager at Common Cause joins Rick to explain why the recent decision by the US Supreme case to take a gerrymandering case from Maryland could be a positive sign that the court could be willing to move on partisan gerrymandering.

Helaine Olen, Author of Pound Foolish. Co-author of The Index Card, and Blogger at the Washington Post’s Plum Line joins Rick to discuss her recent article on millennial women overwhelmingly identifying as Democrats and what the reason could be for this massive shift.

Jon Shelton, Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay joins Rick to discuss teachers taking to the streets to strike back against poverty wages, long hours, diminishing benefits, and an apparent lack of respect and to explain why this moment in history could be an important time for all workers.
