On this episode of The Tightrope with Dan Smolen, we unpack the difficult issues involving our ever-changing workforce in the Age of Trump. Labor historian, associate professor of labor and sustainability, and author Dr. David Jacobs helps us to understand the changes in policy and practice that have, over the past 30 to 40 years, made the work that we do less stable, lucrative, and enjoyable.

After our conversation, I will look back at my wonderful experience—as an activist and as a dad—participating in the People’s Climate March on Washington.

PLEASE NOTE: Dr. David Jacobs’ book, Disunited States of America: Employment Relations in Conflict, is available for purchase HERE.
