$15 Wage, Media & Iraq War, private surplus & public austerity
Joe Clement hosts and we hear:
- Bill Resnick talks with Arun Gupta about how Seattle passed a $15 minimum wage and what it may signal about an organized working-class taking on capitalism.
- Laurie Mercier has a critical discussion with Peter Hart about the mainstream media's coverage of the Iraq War.
- Clayton Morgareidge comments further on "stagnant capital" and reads a Jacobin article by Richard Seymour about public austerity in an economy dedicated to obscene private surpluses.
