No people that will actually intervene and stop mass layoffs. That’s  what has to happen. Direct intervention to stop mass layoffs and the tricks that Wall Street plays  to promote them. Leverage buyout, stock buybacks.

The resurgence of the labor movement in 2023 galvanized and emboldened unions around the country—and sent capitalists scrambling to squash the nascent militancy of their workers.

WALL STREET'S WAR ON WORKERSAmong the attempts of the billionaire class to retaliate is a major legal challenge to the National Labor Relations Board, the government body that has protected the right of workers to collective bargaining for 89 years. This latest attack on the rights of workers is the culmination of a decades-long assault on the working class in the US, which has been caught between an economic system hemorrhaging jobs and a political system that refuses to address their problems.

Les Leopold, executive director of the Labor Institute and author of Wall Street’s War on Workers, joins The Chris Hedges Report to discuss the full-spectrum assault on worker power taking place before our eyes.
