This episode, I’m talking with Matt Bruenig, founder of the People’s Policy Project or 3Ps, a think tank in Washington D.C. We discuss Marco Rubio’s and Jim Banks’ proposed Teamwork for Employees and Managers bill, a piece of legislation that would make it easier for corporations to establish “employee involvement organizations. The bill is not likely to go anywhere or change very much if it did, so what was the point? Matt and I discuss this bill, company unions, and conservative attempts to appeal to working-class voters.
