Populist Dialogues - 13-42 Labor Views on the Trans Pacific Partnership

Host David Delk talks with the President of CWA  Local 7901, Madelyn Elder.  She characterizes the Trans Pacific Partnership as a  corporate trade act, not a free trade act and notes that it does not do anything
for workers, for the environment and undermines the sovereignty of our nation.  These corporate trade agreements allow corporations to sue nations, noting that  such suits are all theoretical, based not on actual harm but on speculation that a harm may happen and as to its value.  Our talk turns to blue-green alliances  between labor and environmentalists.  And finally ends with discussion of the formation in Portland of a taxi cab drivers union and the formation of a worker cooperative taxi company, Union Cab Company
