Also Henriette Mantel who, besides playing Alice on The Brady Bunch movies, is an accomplished author, comedy writer, and activist.
Then we are joined by Investigative Journalist Robin Urevich who reveals that Trump’s pick for Secretary of Labor Andrew Puzder is no friend to the worker. Robin’s work is a joint effort of Newsweek and Capital and Main. Her article uncovers an alarming number of reports of federal racial discrimination and sexual harassment claims filed against Puzder’s fast food company CKE and its franchisees, which, she writes, “read like stories from the 1940s or ’50s, before civil rights laws were ever enacted.”
David then simplifies the news coming out of Washington by urging listeners to visit www.5Calls.org. Calling is the most effective way to influence your representative. 5 Calls gives you contacts and scripts so calling is quick and easy. 5 Calls uses your location to give you your local representatives so your calls are more impactful.
Robin Urevich writes for Capital & Main an award-winning online publication that reports from California on the most pressing economic, environmental and social issues of our time. Our mission is to expose threats to the public interest and advance progressive ideas and policies in the nation’s most populous state and one of the world’s most influential centers of commerce, culture and technology.
Winner of the 2016 Online Journalist of the Year prize from the Southern California Journalism Awards, Capital & Main has had stories co-published in more than 30 media outlets, from The Atlantic, The Guardian and Fast Company to Huffington Post, Salon and BillMoyers.com.
Working with top writers, editors and visual artists, they cover income inequality and the decline of the American Dream; the enduring power of corporate interests and the influence of business Democrats; climate change and the uneven rise of the green economy; the polarized battle over public education; race, law enforcement and incarceration; and the epic demographic changes foreshadowing the U.S.’s coming shift to a majority-minority nation.
Capital & Main’s advisory board includes former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, author Barbara Ehrenreich and Vice President Joe Biden’s former chief economist Jared Bernstein. Board members include American Prospect executive editor Harold Meyerson, journalist Erin Aubry Kaplan and professor and author Manuel Pastor.
