This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we talk to Lane Windham, whose new book, Knocking on Labor’s Door: Union Organizing in the 1970s and the Roots of the New Economic Divide, overturns widely held myths about labor’s decline, showing instead how employers united to manipulate weak labor law and quash a new wave of worker organizing. Then, we talk to Rod Chapel to find out why the Missouri NAACP asked their national organization to issue its first travel advisory warning people of color to travel at their own risk through Missouri. Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
