Jane Collins: welfare and the working-poor

program date: 
Mon, 07/04/2011

 Bill and Jane talk about the relationship between welfare and the working-poor, paying special attention to working-mothers in Jane's research. Jane says she and her colleagues have wanted to know how the relationship between government, families and business has changed to affect the division of labor she and feminists call "social reproduction" - basically getting people into the next generation. She laments that a lot of people in government today seem to think that tax-payers arrive on the scene fully developed and ready to work. Jane hopes to dislodge that assumption and show that children and adults need many things - like healthcare, childcare and the flexibility to take care of personal crises - secured by their community to flourish individually.

Mr. President: With Joe on leave, Abe looks at the 7-decade growth of executive power in the U.S.

It's been nearly 70 years since the U.S. Congress has declared war. The current administration has enshrined and deepened the surveillance state first ushered in under the auspices of the Cold War and the War on Drugs, and then imposed under G.W. Bush's War on Terror. Once-inviolable rights to counsel, swift trial, due process, security from search and seizure, and habeas corpus have been rendered insubstantial.
