The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 03/01/11

Air date: 
Tue, 03/01/2011 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Abe and Joe marvel at the outbreak of democracy in the American Midwest.

It's kinda nice when we remember we're strong. The extraordinary pro-worker demonstrations that started in Wisconsin two weeks ago -- and have since spread -- give lie to the conventional wisdom that the labor movement is dead. Wisconsin's new governor, Scott Walker, made busting the state public employees' union his first order of business. The union, along with sympathetic Wisconsinites of all stripes, busted him right back -- hard. And they show no sign of backing down.

And and Joe tackle the movement afoot among American workers, and look back at the history of organized labor in the United States, the (not-coincidental) rise of the middle class -- and at the decades-long campaign by the ruling class to cut them back down to size.

Planned Parenthood & Reproductive Rights Under Attack!

Last Friday, the right wing led, U.S. House of Representatives voted to ban the use of federal funds for any services provided by Planned Parenthood of America. They don't just hope to stop women from using their legal right to abortion services but to put birth control out of reach of hundreds of thousands of American women. Tune in to A Deeper look this Thursday morning at 9:30. My guests are Liz Delapoer of Planned Parenthood of the Columbia Willamette and Rose Keltsch of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon. We will talk about the recent dangerous developments and what can be done to maintain reproductive rights for all women in the U.S.
