"Tea or chocolate. Use the coupon code majority ten percent off. I have to say that the time I spent at just coffee. The. I Don I you know, I, I imagine maybe there's some co ops that are not. They're not done. Well, but I don't know. But this one was it was impressive. In terms of the, the sense of supporting all of the workers, they support each other as workers, and as co owners of, of this entity, but they also support their suppliers with basically, the same level of commitment that they support each other with. And so. You know, this is what these, these businesses, do they protect communities as well as protecting the specific needs to the workers, so good stuff all around in the wake of those proposals Sanders was asked on behalf of workers at WalMart to go and head to the shareholders meeting to represent their perspective. Here is a. Here is a video Bernie Sanders en route. This was posted just two hours ago. Here it is. So what this event is about what we're doing. Today is telling the wealthiest family in the country. The Walton family that owns WalMart that they have got to start paying their workers a living wage. This is a family that is worth a hundred and seventy five billion dollars. Walmart is a company that provides compensation to its CEO over twenty million dollars a year more than a thousand times, what their average workum next so what's going on in? Walmart is just an example of what's going on all over this country, very wealthy a- getting wealthier. And working people are struggling, so the message to WalMart today is pay your workers a living. Wait, at least fifteen bucks an hour, allow them to work forty hours a week. Provide them with decent health care in a in a. Nation in which we have massive levels of income, and wealth inequality. We have got to address this issue, and that's what we're doing today. So there is a Bernie Sanders, laying out his agenda, what he's going to be telling the WalMart shareholders as soon as he gets the meeting and. Literally this got tweeted out about fifteen minutes ago, twenty minutes half an hour ago, I guess, CARA Korda who's with CBS news. She's a campaign. Reporter tweets before Senator Sanders takes the stage at the WalMart shareholders meeting. I guess, at these meetings, you know, you imagine it's like a, a board room or conference table, but it's actually like a big theater because it's a huge, there's a lot of people. CEO Doug MacMillan calls for Washington to raise the federal minimum wage quote. It's time for congress to put a thoughtful plan in place to increase the minimum wage. That's, that's pretty good. Very reminiscent of like when governor Nixon of New York state was able to push all sorts of new legislation before she won. Before she won the election. In fact, she never won the election. And still, we got the benefits of that we should always, thank Cynthia Nixon for doing that John Kelly helped and no one else would was willing to do that. She helped a lot. But nevertheless, there's a Bernie already getting now, now it's smart play by the CEO of, of WalMart to call for congress to raise the federal minimum wage right now, because and we'll talk about this. The US congress in the past. Five and a half months as past about fifty bills, some really good bills. That, of course, are going to go nowhere because Mitch McConnell. And. Part of the reason why this story about the tariffs with Mexico is so important is. It's conceivable that if Donald Trump. Is able to? Or actually, imposes these tariffs and the his ability to do. So unilaterally, I think is. I mean, I think it's quite possible. He he does have the ability to do that. I think will seriously hurt the chances of the Republicans to maintain the Senate in two thousand twenty but we will get to that all that in a moment. Just remind you that wanted today's sponsors is skill share anyone who goes to S K, L dot S, H slash majority report.

"Welcome back to the Wednesday before thanksgiving edition of the Charlie Brennan show. John Hancock and Michael Kelly. Happy thanksgiving to all of you out there. Earlier in the week. We were talking about tax credits for movies and a lot of what's going on line. These TV shows now are such you know, there's more money to be made in these programs for net flicks than even movies now, and increasingly these things are being produced outside of Hollywood outside of New York. They're going everywhere candidates become quite prolific in being a venue a location for filming these things, but a lot of parts of the United States are as well. Yeah. There's no doubt about it that it's one of our biggest exports to the world, which is entertainment. We are joined by I'm going to take a moment of personal privilege and tell you that this is one of the finest people you will ever meet and Saint Louis the things that he does for the Saint Louis area are not often seen in the public. But he is a mover and shaker behind the scenes always advocating for the betterment of Saint Louis. He's a true rags to riches story, he is one of my favorite people in Saint Louis. Joining us on the quiver. River electric guests line is none other than pasta house co founder, Kim Tucci. How are you, sir? Hey, good morning guys. Wonderful to be with you the great cannelloni. We like to call. Yeah. He is. He's the best. And so tell us Kim. You have always been a strong advocate of the arts, and in particular movies and having productions made here in the state of Missouri. In fact, you had gone to Jefferson City and gotten the state to put together some tax credits for movies. They were later taken away. Give us a little history of how we got to a place that we were able to film that movie with George Clooney. Well, I used to be the Missouri state film Commissioner, and I was the chairman of the commission, and we were able to get tax credits, which is lobbying group. So with a MoMA, which is an organization for media. They're very supportive. We got we got up to four and a half million dollars with of tax credits a year for film production because you have to understand it won't be one still made in Missouri. Without tax credits. You gotta have tax credits because the producers they're going to get that money anywhere else. So you have to have tax credits. In fact, will report in George Clooney movie up in year with the Academy Award or I should say nominated director Jason Reitman. They told me that they're only here because of tax credits. They liked to location, and but they're there because of tax credits, and they were able to get I was a four and a half million. They got four point one million four and a half million because spent thirty five. While in the state, the thirty five million they at thirty five percents. It's credits. Now, the economic impact of that thirty five million. They start was over sixty million dollars. People say well, gimme example of what do you mean by economic impact? Well, I'll tell you that movie alone at five thousand eight hundred who nights that were used during that movie five thousand eight hundred whom nights, not to mention the food and beverage, so I clean lawn in gas and oil. And then all the union labor. Choose the stagehands electrician's, the carpenters and primarily the Teamsters. So it was tremendous one movie like that makes those laborers makes their whole year. So that was that was terrific and then fouling up another. Independent film major paramount movie was called son size, and I hit that movie, and Michael you was executive producer. And he went to Saint Louis you. Hi. And they went to Yale and Stanford and now. La La Land. Familiar with that? And he's one of the top dogs now in Hollywood discourse producing so he wanted to bring fun size here, and we had four and a half million dollars still in tax credits for the new year. And governor Nixon win signed off on it. And I already had seven thousand room nights books for that movie that movie. Okay. Well, that that that's terrible. And I feel bad earlier in the week. I blamed that on Matt blunt. But it was Jay Nixon. I think I corrected did so bad. Now moving forward. There's an opportunity here right now, we have no tax credits to be able to attract the film industry here. But there may be some opportunities out there. And I'm speaking specifically of Georgia that can maybe bring some of this work here, if we can get this legislature to reinstate those tax credits. Yeah. What happened was a charge? A Tyler parents, you know, his producer using charge of. And like, I told you Georgia two thousand seventeen. Yes. Pack of movies in Georgia and actually three movies based on Missouri were filmed in Georgia, for instance, three billboards affecting Missouri Ozark anyway, the economic at nine and a half billion dollars in two thousand seventeen the I actually workers union stagehand, they weren't from two hundred employees to four thousand employees. Now, what happened is the secretary of state of charge the new governor. But the celebrities and movie they're all upset with him because he just franchise over four thousand voters. Seventy percent of them are African American and Stacey Abrams raised by some fifty thousand votes. So now, there's a move at celebrities want to boycott Georgia because of the duly elected. Governor Kemp if we had pets credits that would be opportunity for us. But the legislature has to put them in you know, they have to they have to pass a law. They have to put the tax credits. And then the governor has to go wrong with this new governor Parsons, I think he's pretty much inclined to help as many businesses as he possibly can. Yeah. What do you think the the realistic capacity of Missouri? Is you you talked about the literal explosion in Georgia with numbers of employees and so forth. How big could this be potentially for from zuri? Do you think a monster? Let me tell you. What's frustrating to me has always been making up in the air Jason Reitman who just yet a front runner movie about Gary Hart. And he came to me were filming up in the air. And so I just wanna tell you some twenty locations here in Saint Louis that I could use for movies. He said that the main reason why we want to come back to Saint Louis number one, of course, assess credits number two mentality and number three professionalism and the expertise of your people in the community. So that's frustrating. At our disposal to bring moving here without tax credits were player or nothing. Well, you know, and it's not just movies increasingly a lot of the serial shows, you know, whether whether they'd be on the old broadcast channels networks or whether the new networks are net flicks. Amazon all these blowing up with series, those are being filled in places like oh, yeah. No that that's major that's probably on an ongoing basis. It's bigger than the movies. The Netflix Amazon all those things like that. They're they become bigger than movies. And the other thing is you also get tests credits for commercials that you sound to and that's very important. I mean, but the thing is when you get more works here when you get more works here. Those people they stay in the community. I don't want to lose any stagehands to Michigan or Iowa or Georgia, and it hurts because then we don't have a professionals here, and then winters up movie here, we don't have anybody here. And you know, people would scoff at Missouri being a potential destination for filmmakers or or people who make television series. It wasn't too many decades ago where Canada it wasn't doing anything. And in the Canadian film industry has exploded. Well, there's a reason for that. They don't use tastes credits. What happened is by the way was the site. I'm honestly, you know, some international film festival, I guess for life. I've been there for twelve years now, and that really helps because we just John Goodman in her lifetime achievement award, and that brings different producers and directors they come in. We've had eighty different people from out of town come into the film festival. What happened in Toronto? Decided they were gonna pay next the canned film festival. They wanna be the best film festival. Second best in the world. And they are now. But because of that they start entertaining people that come there to make movies and television series all from Vancouver over Toronto. What they're doing. Is cash. Upfront cash upfront come here. What five million dollars? You wanna come here? We'll you ten million dollars. And that's how they really Canada is just well, it's it's unbelievable. What they've done, but Georgia has taken a big piece of that pie. Now. Well, Kim, hopefully, we're going to make some progress, and helping you get those tax credits reinstated with governor parson, you know, you've done so much for Saint Louis. I said this is the very beginning. People don't know much about you may not see it in public circle. We all know you from the pasta house. Have you ever thought about writing a book? I mean your story from start not working. Tony's all the way to becoming the the the the chairman of the CBC, and so many things you ought to write a book, my friend. Well, we just finished the first three chapters. My it's amazing that you mentioned that we're just finished the first three chapters. Dennis dillon. Sporting news east riding my biography. And it's it's pretty good because we did the first three chapters, but we haven't covered a thirty eight years in power and heaven covered a fifty five years in the food business and heaven covered the thirteen years when I was a teacher. Wow. And then and then the years that I was coaching and I was trained in the NBA two years with the Saint Louis hawks. Wow, trainer for them. So it's it's fun doing the book and recording our interviews with each other. But what we've finished the first chapters for just finished Eddie Eddie, and I'll be buying that. Yeah. It's going to be the third chapter was called because I also stay for four and a half years, but I didn't make it. Girls got annoying. I didn't make it either. They're the hawks left here in the late fifties. Right. The hawks left Saint Louis was at the late fifties in the mid fifty with them and sixty five and sixty six oh, they loud. Wow. I didn't realize they were here that. Yeah. Sixty five sixty six hundred very lucky sixty five. All star game. Trainer for that game. And that was exciting. Two years. And I was teaching at the time and working at Tony. And I didn't go to Lana with them. I well, let me just tell you. I call him the godfather of Saint Louis, he's the man who makes things happen.

"I I don't want to toot my own horn. I don't know if I said this on air yesterday, but what I say it was going to be sixty five thirty five. It was sixty five point six to thirty four point four. So toot toot toot toot. But that's not the interesting thing about this at all. What's interesting is Cynthia Nixon? Got over a almost one hundred and fifty thousand more votes. In losing to Andrew Cuomo than Andrew Cuomo got one. He won in two thousand fourteen. In two thousand fourteen Andrew Cuomo beat zephyr teach out. In a similar spread. She got thirty four point, three percent of the vote. Cuomo got sixty five point. Seven percent of the vote. Maybe a little less actually. But he got three hundred and thirty thousand votes. She had one hundred and eighty two thousand. Cynthia Nixon. Got five hundred. Twelve thousand votes. She almost got more than everybody who voted last time. That's how many people came out to vote in this election and. Sadly, Jimani Williams lost. And Tisch James. My second choice zephyr teach out lost and we'll talk a little bit about that. There's some some people theorize that this sort of new democrat style. Congressman jumped into the race as a way of taking votes away from zephyr teach out upstate in, which is exactly what happened. But. The the big news is though, is that members of a. Ah, caucus that would caucus with the Republicans. The IDC. Six out of eight of them lost and. Some to DASA folks like Salazar some to just progressive Democrats, but. The IDC was not even operative anymore largely, I think because of Cynthia Nixon. And yet they still lost relative to two thousand fourteen when they were operative and they all one. So there's definitely obviously something brewing here and we'll talk more about that with with Ben Dixon. But here is an let me just say why. I think. I'm not the only person who thinks that Cynthia Nixon was in large part responsible. Obviously when AFC one that created a lot of energy around these races. But Cynthia Nixon was educating people. I went to a like a house party type of function where she's speaking to people in someone's apartment. And I think it was the first one that she ever did. Or at least as far as I know, and. The top three or four issue she talked about were decriminalizing. Marijuana was getting rid of the IDC. And. Maybe a couple of other smaller issues. And shortly after she did that Cuomo changed stance on both of those things. By the time I saw her two months ago or month ago, there wasn't as many issues for her to land on because he hit already addressed those. So governor Nixon was very successful in that regard. I am not the only person who believes that. I think this is about a week ago maybe a couple of days ago. This was a week ago now, no Tuesday of this week. I think it was. Allesandra Biagio. She is a lawyer worked for a Hillary Clinton in sixteen and in Cuomo's counsel's office ran against Jeff Klein. He was the. The leader of the IDC. And she said the following the moment that Cynthia got into the race. It helped my campaign because she started talking about the IDC almost incessantly. She said every day the IDC the IDC the IDC and for people didn't know what it was. It gave them the education about what had been going on. I'll tell you. There is no doubt the number of people who are aware of the IDC just went through the roof because of Cynthia Nixon. Bring it to the four. I mean, it got some attention in October. There was a campaign that was waged. They used ED Falco, but really Cynthia Nixon was the one who crystallized this, and I would see it at this house parties. People were just like what the ID, what house that legal. How's that possible? So it's a big win even in loss. And this goes to what I think we were saying when they referred to it as the blogosphere. There is value in waging fights and losing. Here is Cynthia Nixon with her concession speech last night in New York. Not only coming for Republicans. It is coming for Democrats to like them..

"Ali and the separate issue that air greatness has with the sunshine law where does that stand at this moment so the what what we know is that is a joshua said i'm going to investigate uh the governor's use of confide on his phone um and the kansas city star reported about a week ago that holly's office indicated that the governor's office is not being very cooperative in that investigation governor's office denied it said they were but it wouldn't be the first time this governor had to be subpoenaed by the state auditor in order to to release documents for an audit of the department of revenue last year so um it's not in office again that plays well with others and so if indeed the governor's office doesn't cooperate with that investigation or if that investigation finds a potential destruction of state records then it doesn't go well then you know you're you're talking potentially a a i think it's actually a civil charges don't think it's a a criminal violation of of open records statute and sunshine law and there's not serious violations but if the attorney general who happens to be in the same party and happens to be an up and comer uh like governor brightens was a couple of weeks ago um decides to to file some sort of civil penalty against the governor's office while he's in uh in office that's a big deal at an happen very often the last time we had something similar was win a governor nixon when he was the attorney general was investigating uh governor matt blunt uh over of sunshine law violations and that led to outside investigators a court case lawsuits a settlement with a uh with an employee from the governor's office who had been fired for raising questions about the sunshine law it was relatively a big deal and it contributed to governor blunt only being a oneterm governor not running for office a second time so i think this has that potential how much does what josh hall is attempting to with his cremation being an up income ernie uh could very well be challenging claire mccaskill if he wins the republican primary.
