This week’s episode starts with an update on the ongoing United Steelworkers strike against ATI in multiple states. Then John, Lina and Dan discuss a petition by Trader Joe’s workers aimed at making benefits gained during the pandemic permanent, Joe Biden raising the minimum wage for federal contractors and starting a labor task force, and several major unions threatening to withhold funds from Democrats who don’t support the PRO Act. In our main story, we cover the awful working conditions of drivers for Walmart’s gig service, Spark, and how it seems to combine all the worst aspects of the various gig companies into one. Finally, we close out with an update on the Indian Farmers’ Movement, staying strong five months on.
