Labor Day: Labor History in Chicago

"Labor Day on Monday, and so we have Ah, incredible rich history here in both Illinois and in the city of Chicago. Regarding the labor movement on Labor Day. In general, thier monologist dot com is a website Max colonel who has studied cities in history, and all that really cool stuff is here to reminisce and talk about the labor history in Chicago and beyond. Max. Ah, let's Ah let's let's talk about Ah The blue color sort of mentality that we have in this city eyes that tied to the labour movement, you think? Yeah mean absolutely. I think that you know, you think about whether it's images presented in film. It's the Blues brothers, which obviously they're musicians. They do They do reference their union card. That will not be a one point them. Yeah, they D'oh They famously on wonderfully, You know, I think it is. It's a It's a part of. It's a part of the city's identity. And you know, I I e having only been been in here since the mid nineties. You know, a lot of that has changed. Fairly quickly. Do you think about what constitutes a blue collar job? Right? You go down to the Southeast side to see the U. S X Steel. You know they're still re working on that site. But there's no there's no labours. It's a park. Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing. Yeah, they're they're still there Still the these moments. I mean, you know, you think of other things, which is a variety of trade agreements, etcetera, you know, to buy goodbye volume candy industry, right? Ferrara. Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village. Some people listening probably know that L grow village has one of the world's largest industrial parks. Mathis, right, so there's work going on out there near O'Hare support. Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify. It was like they had identified with the You know the blues or kind of Maureen. I'm kind of more contemporary, you know, Tanya, or common Um, and that kind of that's that's really part of the city's fabric.

Joe Biden Prepares His Pitch to the Nation

"Joe Biden, will formally accept the party's nomination for president and address the nation to make the case that he's the best candidate to lead America forward, he'll also conclude the party's first ever virtual convention where his allies have spent the week portraying president trump as failing to meet the challenges of the job including the US response to the coronavirus pandemic. Joining me now is Wall Street Journal political reporter Ken Thomas Hi Ken thanks for joining me. So can this is the speech Democrats have been gearing up for all week and it's tough to overstate. But how important is this moment for Joe Biden and what does he have to accomplish tonight in a way? This speech is the culmination of Joe Biden's long political career. He's someone who is harbored presidential ambitions, his entire life, and now at the age of seventy seven in his third attempt, he's finally won the Democratic nomination here in Wilmington. It's almost like his political career has come full circle. He'll deliver his speech tonight at a convention center that's about a mile from the Amtrak. Station. Where he first announced his presidential campaign back in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, the Biden campaign says the speech will be positive vision for the country and we've in themes of unity and resilience Biden has often used the term build back better. This idea that the country needs to rebuild from the coronavirus pandemic but do more than simply pursue a restoration project. So they want to address some of the inequities that the pandemic has exposed in the speech and offer a vision of how to set the country on a better path. So I think that's what we're GONNA be hearing from Biden tonight. Of course, this is a very unconventional election year is Biden speech tonight taking on even more weight because of the virtual nature of the DNC and a lot of these events and also the absence of a traditional sort of campaign season where candidates would be out holding events going out meeting people connecting with voters face to face. How does that heighten the stakes? I think Democrats have been fairly pleased with the convention so far there was a lot of uncertainty going into the week about how all this would come together and how would be received. By. Speech will be difficult one to deliver because he tends to feed off the energy of the crowd and he will often ad-lib break from the script. He's not going to have an arena with cheering delegates. He'll be in a quiet auditorium with about thirty reporters wearing masks seated with their laptops. But this is one of those moments in which the Biden campaign will get millions of viewers and a chance to reintroduce Joe Biden. And tell his story. So I think the convention speech is always important, but it's even more. So this year because of what the pandemic has done to traditional campaigning.

Show Notes Tips from Tech-Minded Podcasters

"First thing, the big news for those of us in the podcast industry in a lot of podcasters out there is podcasts movement. In Dallas, has been canceled surprise surprise. It's kind of been the theme all this year. You know all these big events getting canceled or push back and then canceled and that's what happened here. They pushed it from August to October and then decided to go virtual. So, they're going to be going virtual. If you applied to speak at podcast movement by the way you're going to have to reapply if you WANNA speak virtually at the virtual event. That's I believe October nineteenth yeah, Eighteen, th through the twenty nineth, so they're going to kind of spread it out over ten days, so at shouldn't a burden, too many people with having to take a lot of time off from work. That'll be good. Yeah I was surprised when I saw how long the virtual event is going to go for, but I do think that's good, because most of us including me. I don't really WANNA. Sit on a you know virtual video conference type thing for you know more than. Probably a few hours a day, so spreading it out will make it easier. I think for most people oh. Yeah for sure, and you know I kind of saw this coming of if you notice all of the little, meet upset. podcast movements been having online every time they do it. They use a different technology. So I think they were just testing out the technology to figure out what they want to do for the the virtual full events so. It'll be interesting to see how it all works out I. Hope I hope it goes well. I know podcast is doing one in August. that's all virtual online, so we'll see how these big conferences work in the virtual world. It really is kind of a brave new world for all of US years. We try to figure out. How to do all these things in the wake of a pandemic, it's It's all new stuff. Oh Yeah I. Think L. for the most part. We're getting through it and getting. Getting. Things done that have to be done. You know that are not related directly to the pandemic or all that so. I think I. Think it's good that it's online this year. I, you know I really hope that things get back to where we can get back in person because I haven't traveled since October which is amazing for me usually. I'm on the road. So Anyway Twenty twenty one. They've already scheduled the podcast movement twenty twenty, one for Nashville Tennessee so. That'll be a new venue for them. Usually they're in bigger cities and guess. Nashville is pretty big, but I. don't know I guess I wouldn't mind checking out Nashville. Yeah. It's an interesting location. I. I know, didn't There was another you know media convention was it's The religious broadcasters association I think that Yeah usually habits meetings in Tennessee. Yeah, and RB National Religious Broadcasters. They usually have there's in Tennessee. They had it out in Anaheim one year. But for the most part it's at the same venue. In Nashville, so I know Mackenzie Angelo and todd have all been to that venue for that show, so they'll be familiar with it. Yeah Yeah it's It's an interesting choice. I like that you know podcast movement has. Tried through its history different locations I. think it's good for everybody because you know, it's a travel under abnormal conditions you know is different for everybody. Some people can afford to go farther and if you have it in a different location. If, people want to drive in. They can or whatever the case is, so it's nice that they've. They've tried to have it in different places over the years. Oh, yeah, when they hit Chicago a I drove. Most of the way in took Amtrak in so that was Kinda cool. Nashville kind of on the outside of my one day drive. Limit so we'll see. You know. Who knows. If, I drive it or fly it or Maybe, I'll find a train that goes that way. I don't know we'll see but I kind of look forward to that Rate. Stood, we have here in the news folder. According to macrumors and many many other sources spotify is introducing their video podcasts for more shows. And I know James Crillon over at Pod News. Dot Net was asking them. You know how. How is that GONNA work is to be are astronaut. turns out that no some sort of proprietary. Thing, so basically you have to upload the video right at spotify, and it only goes to spotify, so it's not like a full video podcast, and if you have a video podcast, that is a full normal, RSS, based video podcast still won't work on spotify.

The Limits and Possibilities of Journalism

"There's a convention in the world fiction known as the unreliable narrator, a character whose very much part of the story they're telling, and therefore, whose account cannot always be taken at face value because we know, they have interests at stake. It's a concept. One could fruitfully apply to journalism where interests and stakes like gender race, diginity or colonialism are rarely, if ever apparent and the reporting of news be that to audiences are even to reporters themselves. Would making those things explicit? Therefore make journalism unreliable given its long-standing complicity with the dominant social order. Maybe the better question to ask is how journalism can best grapple with its innate limitations. And yet as we see in the subtitle of Collison in Young's book, the possibilities of journalism also abound alternatives they argue have been largely generated outside the walls of mainstream outlets. Candice in Maryland. Thanks for sticking around for part two of this conversation. Amtrak at the pleasure to be here. Thanks for having us. Yeah, thanks for having us. Yeah, yeah, well. Thanks for indulging me here in having this extended conversation. I do WanNa get to what can be done to repair remediate reform. Rehabilitate retrofit I. Don't know I don't know what the right word is. You'll tell me, but I still have some other questions to get into and as you know candice I'm want to ask odd questions, and so why stop now so? Let me, ask you. Candice is racism fact. Or Not An I'll tell you why ask because every time I. See it. It's slapped inside quotation marks whenever it's reported on as if it was opinion, not fact. Is Racism factor not and if it's treated as if it isn't how telling, is that on the part of those who do so and such an interesting question points observation about journalism. That e racism ends up being a claim that make as opposed to an observable experience documented. You know with much precision increasingly over the last you know I don't know century. Really it, but it comes back to you know. We talked a little bit about the National Geographic. Apology right they needed a historian to go through all of their coverage and say actually was racist. At documented. Analytical opinion from somebody who had gone through gone through all of their reporting. When in fact, right? I mean one of the interesting points. They actually make in the story that they do on themselves. Is that at time when they were reporting on the crowning of a King Ethiopia? Black. Men and women in the United States could not actually get into a an a lecture at national. Geographic place because everything was segregated still at that time right so. You know it's the same thing with objectivity. If you think about the way that the history of journalism has been told, we talk about the rise of objectivity, and how it emerged in the nineteen twenties, we'll in the nineteen twenties who had the vote who was able to fully participate in democracy? When you start asking those kinds of questions, it becomes untenable that the way that journalism has perceived itself as recording a story that gets better over time when you know the experience of many minority, visible minority populations marginalized populations. Indigenous populations have. Definitely had a really uneven experience with democracy with colonialism, and you know, have often suffered, and not have their stories told in anything like mainstream news, in fact, in most cases at least when it comes to indigenous people. We've had to start our own. Our own media right? If you look at the way that media has evolved e- you see the way that indigenous people have taken it up at every single turn including when it came to to digital media

"I've heard these rumors you know every time there's a crisis there rumors about the over reaching arm of the federal government or the National Guard to the secret police I guess the latest rumor was that hi ninety five may be shut down at certain places to prevent new Yorkers in particular from escaping New York and spreading the virus to other places is there any indication that that's actually happened when the Hey good morning John you know that you're absolutely right on the money really is it cost for a long time when you have a lot of residents who have family for example in other states and are worried they're not going to be able to get there because they're going to be stopped either at a designated checkpoints as you mention that supposedly was created on interstate ninety five or at least that was in the works all buy random stocks of three groups are up in Rhode Island if somebody had to do your weight yes it's during times like these that governments have that untenable balancing of the equities if you well where they have to take into account people desiring blight to travel versus public safety concerns and because New York is a hot spot right now this is one of the many efforts being taken around the country to try to contain the spread what's actually happened in our afternoon host Jeff Katz brought up a couple of days ago when I was listening to him about how the bosses are still arriving in Richmond from northern destinations of the Amtrak trains are still running presumably there are people moving here what has happened and what does the law allow or restrict government from doing great great two part question re with respect to the first part what is happening there is a disconnect between what you see or read on the news and what is happening in reality how do we know that there are slight apps that you can download that will show you that despite all the restrictions claiming no one's traveling there aren't swept all the major airlines trip traversing the country every day Seoul to with these check points that we read about being created on difference interstate I read the same reports that you have yeah I know people over there who have told me on the phone things are very different and it's because the situation is shifting with respect to the neat so if any of our listeners are planning travel the very first place to go is online on the phone however you need to figure out what is really in place where you're going and lots of apps for that if you will your question is also interesting what can the government do how much can they legally do that a federal government can do a lot that's the short answer but here's the problem if there's a concern that citizens have that maybe what their local governments are doing is legal the goal is not to end and the result is not going to be good if you decide well I'm just not going to comply because I don't think it's lawful obviously the remedy is to complain that the challenge it later now that doesn't help people for example trying to get the wellpoint center faced with roadblocks in this type of thing but the goal is always to try to figure out how to best weather the storm while still maintaining the ability to challenge what we think are unconstitutional the short answer to all of this John in times of crisis the government is able to do more to rein on it it would probably be able to get away with we're tired good work we're beginning of the year I think that they would have less leeway than they do

It's been past few years there have been several deadly crashes on Amtrak routes two years ago Amtrak brought in an outsider to fix these problems his name is Richard Anderson the former CEO of Delta airlines since he took over Anderson has been making a lot of changes and also a lot of enemies today on the show Ken Richard Anderson Make Amtrak relevant to the future of American Transportation welcome to the journal our show about money business and power I'm Caitlyn Bob I'm Ryan Knutson it's Tuesday October Fifteenth so tell me about who Richard Anderson is what's his around most famously he was the CEO of Delta Airlines for nine years he is a tough boss Ted man as a reporter based in Washington DC running delta he was famously and or infamously one of the more hard headed airline CEO's really of his generation how so in taking over Delta he was taking over an airline emerging from bankruptcy he turned them into a very profitable airline and he was really willing to part company with other airline executives at one point Delta quit the airline trade group over a policy disagreement he just sort of a guy who has been seen appears as willing to Zig zagged and a guy who's totally unapologetic about it if he felt it was the right decision and this is exactly why Anders it was called to head up Amtrak what I think a lot of people involved in the railroad would acknowledge was just a kind of organizational dysfunction when they went out to look for a CEO to run this railroad they went looking for someone who was gonNA knock some Ed's together and put a charge through the company and get it looking better so why do you think he decided to take on a job at a challenging operation like Amtrak it's a really good question I think the guy was in the mood for a challenge he's been on the hill a lot since he started Amtrak and usually finds a way to work into his testimony the fact that he doesn't get paid need to run Amtrak he doesn't get paid to run Amtrak doesn't get paid there's GonNa be no ability on the part of workers to say Richard Anderson is eliminating these jobs while he's making X. number of dollars a year that line is not available to people who disagree with this decision there are a lot of people who disagree with some of the things Anderson is doing to change Amtrak one of his fights about how to make train safer there've been several major accidents in recent years in two thousand fifteen an accident in Philadelphia killed eight people and another in two thousand seventeen in Washington state killed three hundreds of people have been injured Anderson thinks these crashes could have been prevented with more automation and train cars pilots increasing I use automation to fly planes in Anderson wants to put similar technology in trains the most shocking thing to anyone who is coming from aviation into railroading is the amount to which safety still relies on one human being in railroads if I'm an engineer and I drive a train from New York to Philadelphia I am required to Eddie and memorize the route what the landmarks are that I'd be passing knowing that if I pass this factory building on the right hand side of the tracks that I am x number of meters away from zone I have to slow down or speed up wow that sounds like it takes an enormous amount of memorization it's total reliance on the human brain a system of rules and we know that the brain will let us down from time to time and you have in the case of an Amtrak train hundreds of souls riding on that so if he wants to do a very aviation style safety approach on the train and in particular wants to bring screens into the locomotive cab so that you would have a sort of a heads up display in a moving map that would show the engineer where he is at all times and that is completely anathema a two railroad tradition why would there be any opposition to this idea well the fear of distraction among engineers themselves the engineers union and the safety regulators has always said no screens whatsoever no way and probably the most serious rule other than you cannot be drunk or on drugs when driving a train is you cannot have your phone on because the chance of distraction is so great so that's a big fight that he's having Anderson faced another fight after he took on an issue that nobody disagrees with trains being on time one of the reasons Anderson says trains are often late is because of hobbyists people who restore old train cars and attach them to the back of Amtrak peak railroad car from the head of the Pennsylvania Railroad and can afford to store it somewhere the way it worked for decades was we could hook that onto the back of an Amtrak Regional in his trying to provide is modern efficient twenty-first-century transportation and importantly profitable but how do you turn around a company.

"Amtrak it will provide recommendations to the first responding that worked this incident old two all with the intent of um uh minimizing the occurrence of these types of incidents moving forward but certainly um things like positive train control things like you know was the engineer distracted um is our their recommendations as to how many hours of work somebody should have when are operating a train all of that will be looked into with recommendations a you know that a company of course my car has a see both shoulder harnesses they have to have a although i had in my head a year look real close but i've got a scar right in my eyebrow ridge that has the exact shape of an mg be hornrimmed back in an era when they were not mandatory at a seatbelt when my car slid off a road but no shoulder harnesses and so v seatbelt two held maya pelvis in place where my upper body slammed into that steering column on an airplane of course you do have the seat belts and i don't remember i've written a lot of amtrak train that remember ever having even so much as a seatbelt much less a shoulder harnesses it time for that i do think so you're correct that there are no seat belts on the amtrak trains or mass transit trans um and one of the findings from the philadelphia derailment in 2015 that i was involved in is that you know many of the injuries were due to passengers being um you know quite literally tossed around in the cars as they kind of careers that they careened off their track and so stabilising them much like we do in an airplane or in a automobile i'm could prevent some of some of the injuries a general is types of things that you have looked into you've looked into.

"You when a unit commercial break you when i got the talking for some reason we got on amtrak yeah i think you've got some news and out you've been talking to amtrak above making a stop at the airport station yes so uh as a matter of fact a during last year uh we and amtrak uh got together did a study on uh adding a another rail uh in that area and expanding that facility so that amtrak could bake more frequent stops at that at that facility it doesn't make any stops now the airport mm no amtrak mcnall stopped at the airport but that was the original version of the plasco right i remember on the governor hamad i covered the news conference right we're going to build a train station at the airport amtrak is going to stop there may be and it's going to be great trained to the plane and at up the bought a you saying this is going to happen there very interested and and now taking it to the next step and beginning to get a preliminary engineering and estimates for that uh and we'll be doing that with them during the next year or elhamy press you a little bit is this going to happen is amtrak going to make a stop at that airport station said very significant so they're they're willing to do it and we're willing to do it there were no way to take as i said the first step in that process usually as you as you get when you have two parties that are agreeing to something and you take the first step it usually ends up happening things in the railroad into st do not happen as quickly as we can make them happen on a on a road or a bridge but were were taking that initial step and we both agreed to the way to do it okay study determined that there is a way to do it they'll just hold on there be a little late that they'll happened but this is very significant because if you get amtrak to staff at that airport yes uh commuters could then go over there parking garage jump on an amtrak faster trained get up the boston right and they do that the washington dc area they allow for commuters to rotterdam jeter this is very significant and amtrak stopped there are you saying.

"The empire built her for example which goes from chicago to seattle a lot of those trips are minneapolis to uh wolf point montana places like that you're not going to fly you're not able to fly on there's no bus service so if you live in wolf point you need to get to the nearest big city will guess what you're going to do and then you get on amtrak uh and so that's really the utility of longdistance route let's talk about those other other tell the by the way my guest is jim matthews his presidency of the national association railroad passengers works to build coalitions with amtrak us government the public to support amtrak the one of the big things in the in the proposed white house budget is dropping of service to a a unusually large number of small and mediumsize cities what is the thinking behind that well you know it it partly animated by on some very a long standing um uh conservative opposition to the the entire idea of longdistance passenger rail on the phone with philosophical um but then it also animated by this this really this myth that while longdistance routes lose money and north quarter make money so we'll saved the part that make money and we'll get rid of the rest um but the mit and if you strip the man look the matthew figure out that the admit it over the the with you're talking about really wouldn't help anything it's two hundred and twentyfive community that would lose their service heartened forty million americans would lose their access to amtrak if you if they went through on and with warm and the now departing ceo amtrak um recently said that if you were to cut these route bar from saving money it would cost the amtrak four hundred twenty three million dollars in additional cost to shuttered all down so you'd be eliminating uh most of the the network and you'd be paying more for less service so i i don't see how that makes much sense in any way other than at sort of political way does amtrak have other friends on capitol hill for amtrak of the.
