In the latest episode of the Belabored podcast, Josh and Sarah are joined by the Nation‘s Lee Fang, investigative reporter and author of The Machine: A Field Guide to the Resurgent Right, for a conversation about the enemy. They discuss the bait-and-switch tactics being used to avoid worker safety accords in Bangladesh, the rise of the online education wing of the corporate education reform movement, and how the whole big-money machine fits together. They also discuss the beginning of hearings over Chicago school closings, the latest at the NLRB, more strikes by low-wage workers, and more.
