Denise Morris hosts this episode of the Old Mole, which includes a re-broadcast from Against the Grain about the Labor of Veterans.

Veterans are a prominent symbol in U.S. politics, evoking patriotism and military might. The right recruits them and they populate the police, private security, and often militia groups. But the struggles of veterans, and those currently working for the military, should be of concern for the left, argues Suzanne Gordon and Steve Early. They discuss the always non-union labor of military work, attempts to privatize veterans’ healthcare, and the political orientation of veterans and the organizations claiming to represent them.

Against the Grain is a weekly radio show hosted by Sasha Lilly and C.S Soong on KPFA Pacifica Radio in Berkley, California. It’s a program of ideas, in-depth analysis, and commentary on political, economic, social, and cultural issues important to radical thinking and activism.

The original broadcast can be heard on Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/kpfa-against-the-grain/id78900506?i=1000578737049
