Ep. 129: Crazy Train ft. Matthew Cunningham-Cook
Congress is trying to "avoid a strike" and force rail workers back onto the job without meeting their contract demands.

We’re joined by Matthew Cunningham-Cook of The Lever where he has done tremendous reporting covering rail workers’ push for better working conditions. He gives us background on the fight for better union contracts, how the Biden administration intervened and now the push in Congress to “avoid a strike” that ultimately might not include very modest demands from workers for paid sick leave.
