Ep 20 Working families and new labor department changes, stochastic terrorism, and call to action for Millennials

September 15, 2017

In Episode 20, we discuss the latest changes that will impact working American families under Trump's Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, specifically, changes to the sharing economy, traditional manufacturing, and overtime rules. In the Trumpster Fire, we define "stochastic terrorism" and explain how Trump uses this rhetorical strategy to incite his base and avoid culpability and we review the PEN America statement about Trump's attacks on journalists. Our Media Minute encourages you to listen to our friends over at Raging Chicken Press, and our Activist Action is a specific call-to-action for our Millennial listeners. Empower yourself by joining our community and feel less alone in this topsy-turvy time. Share this episode with your social media networks and ask others to listen and join this fight. We are in this together.
