Rick opens the show with a conversation about the anniversary of the Charlottesville “Unite the Right-Wing Insanity Machine” rally and the murder of Heather Heyer. Then we are joined by Austin Keyser of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to talk about the infrastructure package and how important it is that the jobs created be good, family-sustaining union jobs, and then Marcus Baram of Capital and Main joins us to discuss his ongoing series on inequality in America, focusing this week on essential jobs that we are paying less and less for people to do. Tiki-Torch Parade | 8-13-21 (2nd Hour) The second hour begins with Jordan Zakarin of More Perfect Union for a follow up discussion on a recently ended strike at Frito-Lay, and new strike at Nabisco Foods, and then we end the night with Bob Ney, the former Ohio Congressman and political analyst, for a discussion that covers everything from Gaetz to Greene, and all the GOP madness in between.
