Trillions for Banks and Auto Bosses, Nothing for Workers
The government is giving away trillions of dollars of tax-payer money to the banks and giant corporations to keep them profitable. But it refuses to offer any meaningful relief to the working class. In fact, Washington is using the economic crisis as an opportunity to bust unions and push more take-backs from the workers. The Obama administration and Congress are refusing to extend more loans to the auto industry for a small fraction of what they are giving to bailout the banks. The difference is that the state wants the workers to make concessions, not the capitalists. If the big three US automakers are allowed to go bankrupt, courts will take away hard-won gains from the autoworkers and force the UAW to make yet more concessions. Join us for a report and discussion on the capitalist government’s approach to the auto industry.
The Obama Administration & Cuba
Hear a report on socialist Cuba and the possibility of an easing of the travel ban, part of a decades-old blockade against the Cuban revolution.
