More Americans apply for jobless benefits last week

Andy Posner: Nominal Wage Increases Aren't Helping Rising Costs
"But on the other front there's not much else Andy going in a great direction here We've got the producer price index exploding you know producers and wholesalers paying more for inputs before they produce outputs You've got labor for labor force participation going down And most devastating of all something you've commented on I follow you on social media Is the decreasing power of your earnings Andy you might be getting a nominal raise in your paycheck but your paycheck ain't going as far anymore as it was in the Trump administration No not at all A simple way to think about it is if inflation is 8% so if you had a $100 there it's worth $8 less you're now down to $92 but you got a 5% raise so you go up to $97 Well you're still $3 short So for Biden to be out there talking about how their wages are increasing What he's talking about is nominal wages which is the number on your paycheck which everybody loves to see that get bigger But the problem is if you go to the gas station or you go to the grocery store all of a sudden you realize that even though the number was bigger you're able to buy less And that's really what we're experiencing in America right now And by the way you mentioned the unemployment rate going down Which is good But the unemployment rate will go down automatically if labor participation decreases Nobody has to get shot If there's fewer people in the labor force unemployment will go down We're still not even where we were on the number of jobs We're not where we're going into the pandemic There are still fewer jobs than when the pandemic started So this administration is truly a failure in every respect economically And just about every other respect but we're talking about the economy so limited to that

May Bidenflation Strikes Again
"But first let's get to this inflation report and the politics, shall we say, of all of it? 8.3%. 8.3% was how much inflation rose in April, so we're continuing this climb here according to the bureau of labor statistics. Okay, oh, we're down from 8 and a half percent. I read one headline across a liberal television network that said inflation declines, you know, they were really trying to play that up. I'm sorry, there's really not a big difference between 8.3% and 8.5%. I'm like, hey, I'll take the two tenths of a percent, but this is not a time to celebrate a .3 is still way too high and by the way, we haven't even fully seen the effects of higher wheat prices and higher energy prices courtesy of what's going on overseas. All right, so even though the president is trying to point fingers and blame, in this case, he's been trying the Putin thing, but that's not sinking in or maga. The maga party, I guess he means Republicans. It's not going to work. I mean, the reality is these policies that he has enacted and put in place. They have led us to where we are today. You can not issue another COVID stimulus check as he did when he first came into office. That was the third one, while simultaneously putting $1.9 trillion worth of spending into the economy with his, you know, his whole stimulus effort. He didn't even get what he wanted, right? Like, imagine if he had. Then we'd be looking at, I don't know.

Sen. Tim Scott Responds to Janet Yellen's Pro-Abortion Comments
"And here is his response cut to go Some of your comments in response to bob's question I found troubling And just from a clarity's sake did you say that ending the life of a child is good for the labor force participation rate Giving someone the let me just quote what you said that ultimately increasing access to abortion and reproductive healthcare allows for our labor force participation rate to continue to increase that denying women access to abortion increases their odds of living in poverty or need for public assistance to the guy who was raised by a single mom who worked long hours to keep us out of poverty I think people can disagree on the issue of being pro life or pro abortion but in the end I think framing it in the context of labor force participation is it just feels calloused to me I think finding a way to have a debate around abortion in a meaning for the economic stability of our country is harsh and I'm just surprised that we find ways to weave into every facet of our lives Such an important and painful reality for so many people to make it sound like it's just another .4% added to our labor force participation as a result of the issue of abortion just to me seems
Janet Yellen: Roe v. Wade Reversal Would Damage the Economy
"Janet Yellen cut one go Well I believe that eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades Roe V wade and access to reproductive healthcare including abortion helped lead to increased labor force participation It enabled many women to finish school that increased their earning potential it allowed women to plan and balance their families and careers
Yellen Says Eliminating Abortion Rights Would Harm Economy
"Roe V wade reversal would be very damaging the economy says Janet Yellen. I believe I've got that clip somewhere. Let me see where I can cut number 26th place. This is absurd. Certainly don't mean to. Say what I think the effects are in a manner that's harsh. What we're talking about is whether or not women will have the ability to regulate their reproductive. Situation in ways that will enable them to plan lives that are fulfilling and satisfying for them. And one aspect of the satisfying life is being able to feel that you have the financial resources to raise a child that the children you bring into the world are wanted and that you have the ability to take care of them in many cases, abortions are of teenage women, particularly low income and often black who aren't in a position to be able to care for children have unexpected pregnancies and it deprives them of the ability often to continue their education to later participate in the workforce. So there is a spillover into labor force participation, but it means that children will grow up in poverty and do worse themselves. Thank you. Let me just say that. The children will grow up is the operative phrase there, and that's
Jeff Bezos in Hot Water Over Amazon's Labor Practices
"Let me turn to Jeff Bezos because I would just say that this is once again emblematic emblematic of the hypocrisy that you so often see on the left. Jeff Bezos might, in fact, even be kind of more of a hypocrite than anyone thought. I mean, this is pretty wild. He's out there super liberal, runs in The Washington Post, or owns it, I should say. And he is in hot water now because he's not okay with unions. His company, Amazon, has just been caught firing employees that were responsible for creating a union in one of his biggest shops. Think about that. I mean, it's kind of amazing, right? Amazon gets rid of these guys because, well, one would have to assume they're saying it's job performance, but one would have to question why they got rid of them in a time like this when these were the guys that were responsible. Of course, for the creation of a union in their shop. Company doesn't want a union, and while look, I get it, and I can understand why management maybe doesn't want one, the reality is this. You know what? You can't do that. Jeff Bezos. She can't do that, Amazon. You can't fire people for trying to start a union at your company. And yet, well, we don't know. I suppose this will go to a much higher level, but it doesn't seem good. The employees themselves say they were fired for organizing the shop that resulted in the company's first unionized warehouse in the United States.
Prices Are Not Going Back to Where They Were - We Are IN a Recession!
"Santelli, prices are not going back to where they were. Play cut 66. But prices are not. And I underscore our not going back to where they were. You'd need months and months of months of minus signs on year over year, a month over month, CPI and PPI. Don't think you're going to get months and months of those. Cut 68 CNBC panelists. I'm concerned about the decline in the labor force participation right. People ask me, do you think a recession is coming? I think we're in a recession. Right now. Like that 68. I am concerned about the declining participation rate and we should have read too much into one month's report. But this is part of the reason we've been seeing pressures on wages. So for president dropping out, again, I think the pressure on wages could continue, so I think there are some signs there of concern. It's maybe the quiet before the storm. Economic adviser for Joe Biden was asked about this about, do you think we're heading towards a recession while we can't rule anything out? What a ridiculous question. We're heading into a session. We are in a recession right now. Play cut 61. Americans, they don't feel good about it, right? You're looking at your feelings. They don't feel good about it. Can you tell the American people that we're not headed for a recession? I can tell the American people that we are much better positioned when it comes to that recession question than pretty much any other advanced economy I've seen. But probably more importantly. So you can't rule it out. Hold on. You can never rule anything out. So that's not really a relevant question. You can never rule anything out. Okay, got it. And who are they blaming? Well, thankfully, the American people are blaming Joe Biden. The economy, inflation created by our response to COVID. We did this. Did not happen

Dinesh Discusses Emancipation in Britain vs. America
"Our next question is a video question. International's try again, God bless you and thank you for answering all my questions. I really appreciate it. Something that popped in my head today, I'm listening to the personal memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, huge book. And something popped in my head. I remember that Larry elder said that he thought that the reason there wasn't a Civil War in England over the Emancipation of slaves was because the state actually gave reparations to the slave owner. To free the slave. I was curious if you think that this proposition was ever brought forth to the south if they would have accepted it, or if it was just something that was never on the table that they would have never accepted. I'd love to hear what you think. And I really, I'm getting a lot of respect for Ulysses S. Grant and all the union troops. They had to fight like hell to save our country. God bless you and thank you for all you do. I'm fascinating question that delves into history and the difference between the experience of America and the experience of Great Britain. Now it is true that when you had Emancipation in Britain, it was, well, it was compensated Emancipation, which meant you couldn't have slaves anymore, but the British government would in a sense pay you the value of your quote property. The free you of it, and so there was. I don't think was unjust in the case of Great Britain for the simple reason that British law classified slaves as property. So in that respect, prior to Emancipation, it was legal to own slaves. And by the way, there were a lot of slaves, also in the British Empire. They weren't that many slaves in Britain, not so this is an important difference between the British experience and the American that the economy of the south in the United States was heavily dependent. In fact, was defined by slavery, cotton was the predominant crop across the Deep South. But even in the rest of the south, there were slaves that were used in domestic labor onto a tobacco plantations, and so on. So the economy of the south is almost inconceivable without slavery. This was not true of Great Britain. And so I think the reason that there wasn't a Civil War in Britain is because the abolition of slavery in Great Britain was not as big a deal.

Now make sure you give it to me in twenty weeks and the universe provides. That's what i'm counting on. I think that's how you stay alive this whole time so i don't know why you wouldn't believe it. Did you have a good labor week. I did is that okay to say. That's a weird way of asking right. Well it's labor week. Of course we celebrate all the work we do by not working and handa had her first major outing yes since the pandemic two beautiful alantic city dumped. She didn't think coney island would be a good enough vacation. She earned atlantic city depressing. How the is that all my side. Wow wow wow. Wow wow and you know. It's not like new yorkers. Don't know that atlantic city is not the vegas that atlantic city tries to sell itself. We know that. And we know that even outside of life the vegas strip. It's not doing very well and it's not the lights in the glamour at all but this is like it feels like next level and this time we stayed at marriott and the entire thought process. There was the marriott's can be cleaned. We know the name like we've never like stayed at marriott. Were we're like this is crazy Which is no. It's going to have a nice coffee machine in the room and we're going to be able to have as many towels as we want fun adults. The adults have fun so excited by and then we thought all an and it's a pretty cheap vacation right but then we thought oh. We can't take the bus. That's practically free. We have to rent a car. That feels a little too extreme. We're out let's go to like the worst you know. We may as well go to florida or you know what's happening in texas whatever's happening there so we thought let's reduce the risk. Let's rent a car and Okay i don't know what i think seinfeld had a thing about this. I don't know what car rental places are doing. Because you fill out everything on the thing you even pay for it. You declining agree to all of their things. And then you go there and wait in line to like shake. Someone's hand about it. I don't understand we'd people in the line behind us who decided to order ubereats because it was taking so long. Yes we're just standing there and because it's still cova you don't have a lesser outside just and then you know when you get to like the first person of outside you're now looking in like like a like a little kid looking puppies in a window or something. We must have looked like that because the person in front who's just the last person on the inside was like come on in like. Oh we didn't. We didn't know you'd be cool with us being inside. We thought we were being. You know kovic safe like a regular line like how shit is now. I picked a picture of the sky. Gets a bling on this phone. And you see him in line. He's like one second. I'm picking car. It's funny i really. We know we started to think of Ideas of of businesses to open next to a car rental with being people being upset like a taco standard. Sound bring An ice cream truck would do so well just riding by and we'll do well for the people behind the counter to because you can't be that mad licking an ice cream sure. It's it's very difficult to do that. Did you get your car so often. They never have the car that you've yes now. The thing is i specifically want a sedan. Because i have a bike rack for one and get to the front. I'm like hey. What kind of car is because. I don't know whatever if anything's available. I'm sorry did. I disturb you by asking for a car. You do just said if it's available everyone's upset you know because i guess labor day weekend. I thought because we're leaving on monday. Liberty weekend is over. But i forgot the daytrippers. So there's now the whole idea was to get the car and then have the bicycles to be able to roam around tons out. That was fine. Even though it was frustrating later we found out your roaming the streets of atlantic city. And you're going. There is nobody who wants a bicycle on this road for and we would have died so quickly even in a car. You're playing like you're playing. You're driving like you're playing a video game. People are looking. It's almost like on purpose. They're looking the exact opposite way in the middle of the street as their crossing in new york city. I grew up in never saw anything like this. They're hoping for lawsuits. They're hoping them and then they could the go back into the casinos. Yeah and a lot of them are not really there anymore. They're yelling at nobody you know. Fake and they're hired by the the hotels and the casino so that you go inside those places like inside quick but their partners That's funny and it's even funnier with what happened later on something show up to the to the marriott.

She's also an adjunct lecturer. The department of political science at the hebrew university. She did her. B a in government at harvard impeached. Phd at hebrew university. Where she's been teaching courses in recent years on religion state relations laura's doctoral degrees in political science and she won the prime minister's award in memory of prime minister libya skull for her research Today we'll be discussing her book. Is the party over how israel lost. Its social agenda published in two thousand nineteen by the levee school foundation and we're very happy to welcome to the show. Thank you laura. I want to start with a sort of big broad question if you were to extend this book to the present because it kind of goes up to nineteen seventies. Does labor have social agenda today. What's the main arc of the labour party's platform in terms of social issues compared to its earliest years It does address social issues. it has fraud. It's its history. But i think a lot of things have fallen by the wayside because it's been come embroiled in all kinds of other debates and i don't think it's getting the attention that it should And i think one of the reasons is it as a party. Kind of falling apart it Very nearly ceased to exist before the last elections. I'm thrilled that of my family. Manage to save it But i think it's a problem when you don't have a party it's hard to present a you know. Complicated worldview or really any sort of an ideological platform. And that's what i see Having happened what was the big change over time Well i think the big Blow of course The easy thing to talk about would be seventy seven when the labor party was thrown out of government but. I think it's a little more than that. I think I'd push back earlier to the What became a national obsession in sixty seven which was dealing with the territories and afterwards the war. That's where i thought you were going to start yeah Oh i think that was the the beginning of the end because i think the whole political arena and israel has kind of become warped out of shape since then because people tend to vote only on issues of borders and not about you know social expenditures or anything else or any other priority And i think that was most dangerous been bad for the show parts for the labor party which had been you know the major leader of a social event agenda on television. But it wasn't really different before because even before nine hundred seventy s when labor were in power the had bigger fish to fry it had. Actually you know real security issues to look after state-building of course you know the whole issues of welfare unemployment housing et cetera. Wasn't it relegated to You know the backseat. No actually not Also they didn't always deal with it In public it was always being discussed. A huge emphasis was put on things like public housing golden my ear herself when she was prime minister. Lead the discussions of the Of this special committee that was formed in nineteen seventy one for use Youth at risk and so forth and A lot of the government ministers dealt with those issues also the education. There's a huge amount of money spent and a lot of resources in whole discussions. I mean there are active Committees of the party that all these things Also they when they were discussing the budget they talked about the effects of subsidies on different populations. They talked about Their priorities On a social level. I don't think that happens in really virtually any party today and That i think has had an effect on on how the whole social the whole political arena looks. Those things are barely discussed. So i just wanna clarify though. Is this deficit In terms of dealing with social policy and social issues in general in israel. i mean. Your book is much more about the labor party and its forerunners but would you say this is a society wide problem at present. And that's why you were trying to kind of examine an excavate this issue and see how we got here. Well i think it's a Deficit in the political arena. And it's very interesting to look at polls that have been done even In the last couple of years and most israelis from all different Parts of society want a larger proportion of the budget to be spent on health. I've on Well I know you do say you can see. And i'm sure you know better than i. How large the numbers are but these are things that people want and politicians prefer to deal with things that you know will Get the more attention faster so It's not as if these things don't exist but the parties aren't dealing with them because they are very much concerned with what's you know the next sound bite or You know what's going to get them A lot of attention were Will make them stick out more than than their competitors going back to the labor party of your One of the.
"labour" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"So chuck It turns out that there were two the progressive era as one of my favorite airs. Or i should say the people from the progressive era or some of my favorite people francis pregnant although she was a second or third wave progressive reformer but using fire by some of these earlier ones who were working on things like Fair wages like minimum wage minimum or maximum work days or working hours And they also train their sights on things like ending child labour or at the very least really restricting. The of work kid could do especially In regards to them being in school to the idea was to put school first and then if the kid had the wherewithal or their parents really needed the money or something like that they could let them work in addition to school but the school needed to come first and this is really radical. I mean seems radical. We had kids rolling cigars in their one room apartment in new york their whole lives and now all of a sudden some people are coming up now could should be in school and then maybe working preferably not working. So how do we make that happen. Yeah it was a very big deal in. Most of these are a lot of them. Were women people like jane. Addams and julia. Lathrop and lillian ward Anti-poverty measures in. This is stuff that you know they would also go onto champion Women's rights and women's rights in the workforce and women's rights to vote so as the whole progressive moon was kinda tied up in all these radical ideas about you know being fair and good decent human being radical so Here's the problem is you've got these robber barons in these factory owners in these industrialists who were like. Wait a minute. We got a good deal going because we don't pay these kids much. They're probably not going to unionize. Like the newsies thing was definitely an anomaly. Yeah that didn't happen much. And he said they were like we got a. We got a good thing going and So we're going to lobby against this as hard as we can. But surely they were unsuccessful right now. They were successful. They did they blocked legislation early on For this kind of regulation Federally states Kind of depends on where it was but saints did establish child. Labor commissions in some states had some minimum ages minimum or maximum hours and minimum. wages it was They were sparce. Couldn't find what states passed but For the most were there was a there. Probably for the most part though there was a a lot of pushback in enough pushback among the states The residents of the states that that not a lot got passed so there was a progressive movement that started saying like the eighteen nineties and it had to basically like any progressive movement iran. Full steam ahead hit a huge wall of industry and then had to slowly. Just keep pushing and pushing and chugging and chugging and keeping at it for a few decades before it was successful One of the ways that it became successful or the way that he kept pushing at it after it hit. That wall of industry is A group called the national child. Labor committee formed And i think they formed in back in nineteen. Oh four and they were basically. They became a lobbying group to lobby against the lobbying against child labor laws that ended child labor. Yeah and they had a pretty smart way to get attention and That was in hiring a photographer. Name lewis hine yeah to go around and sneakily document what was going on with his camera. Yeah he was. He worked as a sociologist and a teacher and then later became a photographer was also a photographer and I think he himself was a a kid who was working twelve thirteen hour days. So let me start taking pictures of these kids. And maybe that because that's worth a thousand words they say at least and he's five thousand. Yes so that means that he took fifty thousand words. No five five thousand five hundred. I know undermine your your man. It was totally wrong. It was purposefully wrong though. Let me just do that. Real quick do carry the one. He took five million words. That's a lot of words and if you go back you probably seen a bunch of these pictures if he's seen pictures of very unhappy kids outside of the coal mine or standing on mountains of shucked oysters or standing around Factory machines like little miniature adults. They were probably lewis hines photos. Yeah i mean five thousand photos all archived in the library of congress from what i understand And he had like a really great i to begin with good of graphs themselves. But you know you don't have to sit there and like try to really contemplate it just hits you immediately. What you're looking at. And how sad what you're looking at is. And so he and the national child labor committee got these into newspapers And like you said He was very sneaky. He he poses different things One of them made sense to me the industrial machinery photographer. Okay yeah got fat. But wh- excuse a bible salesman have for taking photographs of the kids at the factory. I could not find that on my life. I mean the only thing. I would think that got him in the door and then maybe he was like and i just love kids and can i take some pictures. But i don't know this is the time before stranger danger. I guess so. They were like sure ryan their child. Labor is. I don't care about him yeah he also He wore a special jacket where he had the buttons on the jacket aligned in known measurements so if he went over instead like he would take your kid's picture and he would ask you know they're documented like their names and their ages and stuff As best he could but he would go stand next to them if he felt like. He couldn't outright ask what their age was to kind of tip off that maybe he was not a bible salesman right And you know if the kid went up to the second or third button he would know roughly how tall they were. All there were then roughly. How old they were right. The giants right right yeah. I'm sure you know he didn't get him all right but you know you can't win them all but the other thing that made That jackets special chuck was that the lining was made of a t shirt of a rip chest and abdomen. Make them feel really good about himself when he put the jacket on. That's good let's call When did things finally change though Well they started to kind of change like these. These pictures shocked the conscience of the nation when they when they saw them when they made them in the newspapers and they were accompanied by muckraking articles. About how bad these conditions were and you know. Shame on you. America for turning a blind eye to this kind of thing but it wasn't like an instantaneous switch thrown it still took decades. I think the first proposal for anti child labor Legislation came in one thousand nine hundred six. Senator albert beverage of indiana Was the first to propose it. Got taken up in nineteen sixteen by the keating act that was actually passed but the supreme court shut it down And then there was some more legislation that there was a constitutional amendment actually got passed but wasn't ratified by the states and then it wasn't until the great depression and the new deal that it finally got past and i think if they were just the new deal it wouldn't have gotten past but the great depression changed things socially enough that opened the door for an end child.
"labour" Discussed on The Red Box Politics Podcast
"Radio. Get you on the way very soon coming up. On today's episodes well not comb. They managed to hang on in. Batley and spend is possibly the worst possible result for kissed. Does he declare victory and carry on regardless lots of his. Mp's still not very happy with how things are going. We're here form. Peter mandelson and diane abbott plus elena korea. I'm poster chris. Curtis about what all this means the labor going force. That's coming up in just a moment. First our columnists panel and today. We've got melanie read from the times and matthew side from the sunday times. Let's start with the big political story of the day. How pleased with himself should kiss dom a be this morning. Do you think well. I think he should be extremely pleased with himself Because if if it hadn't been for one of those great nobles politics sort of matt hancock effect we'd be sitting here talking about The possibility of laters next female leader wouldn't we. You'd think it was my hancock bonnet for labor i. I'm inclined to think that way. Yeah i mean. Three hundred and twenty three votes and the conservatives Campaign is did admit that it was a big subject on the doorsteps didn't they. They did thought he less not yesterday. But today what about you matthew. Yeah i think. I think that's true. I think the hancock story has provoked massive and potentially lasting anger people. You know also different backgrounds while horrified. I think the prime minister didn't sack him immediately. I'm finding out what he'd been up to. But i do think the more general trend here is is very dangerous for labor. The vote in the working class communities has been dropping since two thousand five. And i think it's gonna be you know notwithstanding this this decent result it's going to be extraordinarily difficult for them to assemble the winning coalition at the next election. And i sort of one of the labor maybe had a decent week. They've hammered the conservatives on hancock. You know actually kissed pretty decent. Pm cues by his standards. this week. finding is in now the one bowl for them another everyone else but ultimate he's ended up holding a seat which is being life for twenty five years. That's a long way for making the gains causing the and even in scotland but Where which we seem such a long way off which he's going to need to make those gains go any hope of becoming prime minister to become come to come from ministry to have to get you know twenty seats in the in scotland back but i mean he he can now start spending this as a turning point a time for change time of consolidation I mean as red box said this morning. Good luck to anyone trying to reset the narrative. But that's what he's going to have to do and You know it's it's just going to come general election. George galloway can't stand. It comes down in every in every constituency. Thank god i mean. What a wrecking ball. You know without. Let's let's not forget that without george who is a one off and we have to be careful what we say with him. Because he'll he'll sue us for saying anything but with with he's one off and without him Labor labor would have won this seat. You know reasonably security. Yes well possibly the other thing that people would be pointing out in the if you look like a dozen fifteen sixteen Candidates in this. It's very difficult because the whole world piles in uganda. By how many votes. The toys lost some fringe group. Or whatever you know george. Galloway was very high profile. To if you were giving advice to case donna. Both of you this morning. What do you think he needs to do to try and capitalize on this. Not back as you were joking melanie. We're not this time next week. Talking about angelina planning another leadership bid is really hard when his neck because he's such a palpably decent guy You know he. He's the kind of guy that you want to marry. But he's just not got that kind of that. Charisma that that That lightness of a movement. That you kind of want for in a politician. He needs to be a bit more. Spunky roguish I you know maybe maybe he needs to go on an eighteen cups at holiday. It something just just you kind of want him to breakouts a big in the sort of nicest possible way. I very hard kind of how. How rotten are weak. In this world that we condemn someone for just being too nice. Decent bit more than the of politics is connecting with people. And if you have a bit dull Yeah you could be perfect decent person but the number of times. I've i doubt the as i've been told if only everyone in the country could meet gordon brown personally phone on the country could meet ed milliband person. They'd realize that. Nazis wade as they come across all the telly. Or whatever. and you get exactly the same conversations now from people around Case dahmer and like it or not that is part of the game part of boys. Johnson's huge electoral appeal isn't to do with how was it was ten hospitals or forty hospitals. It's his it's. His personality is his personal connection with billions of voices. I have to say probably like you have meant ed. Miliband and golden brown and boris johnson. I mean admit. Abandon gordon that were at odds of all all the all the relative terraces. Yeah now. I remember meeting anyway but i actually is probably much information but i remember when i was in the labor party and kane on getting a safe seat back in dim and distant pastas at a fundraiser. Wembley stadium and i went into the jets. Labs and go gordon brown. Who was prime minister at..
"labour" Discussed on Mommies Tell All
"Feel your baby move. I could feel like when i when i went into transition. You can feel your baby. Crowning you can feel everything and to me like that was just so easy. Yea grounding unlike anything else i'll ever experienced in my life experience so for me. That's what was worth it you know. And then after the baby comes out you don't think about the pain it's gone and you have your baby and just like it has with an epidural. Your baby comes out and you can have your baby and it's just that moment. Bet i don't know. I just i was like i have this so many chances maybe in my life to experience this and i just be me so interesting. How people are so different. Yeah no every like personality thing you know. Yeah yeah totally what. The what is the percentage of people that do like epa. Daryl that breastfeed or don't breastfeed versus like the people that do natural labor and breastfeed and don't press. Because i do feel like it's almost like maybe what seems like you. Have this connection with your baby wallets coming out and you chose to have like almost this connection with your baby as coming which i chose not to have which also didn't even breastfeed for very long I don't know i'm curious. There is some sort of connection but like with my birth with brooks because it was traumatic for me. I actually did it. Feel that connection re. I felt very disconnected from brooks and so my breastfeeding experience was really hard with him. Because i had postpartum depression and it just i didn't have that experience but i did have that with my other children so i think it's just circumstantial but probably a lot of personality. I have a question. I feel like people have asked me a lot and i never can give them a straight answer because like i just got an epidural to like. I don't know the answer. What are you supposed to do when you push. How do you know the right way to push. Yeah so it kind of depends so if you have. If you don't have an epidural you usually know when it's time to push you get a lot a lot of pressure down there and it's kinda i mean i would say there's a couple of different ways like some people like what's called open gladys pushing so you're just kind of you know working with your body and not being directed by anybody in using a lot of your mouth is nice and open your screaming and you're just you know working with your body pushing down your baby now with an epidurals. That's probably why you're asking me this question. Because with epidermal. Mom's a lotta times. You know you still feel pressure but it's a little bit harder to feel exactly how to push your baby down so with epidermal. Mom's you still can't do that. Open gladys pushing and you know. Try to push with your body. The way that your body's telling you to but with epa moms a usually usually do directed pushing with them at least a start so that's just you know what i'm saying. Okay when he fill contracts because usually with an epidural you still can at the end feel contractions not painful ones but you feel that pressure on. Yeah you definitely feel a little remember. Yeah some people don't but most people do most people. Have you know good. Working epidural is when it's it's working well enough to control your pain but you're still feeling the pressure of baby's head and you're able to still move your legs around bit but they kinda feel numb your legs for like sack of san. Yes exactly they feel very heavy. You can't temperature changes exactly. Yeah so yeah so with pushing a lot of times you know. i'll have a mom. And she just got an epidural and she says oh. I feel like after poop are feel like a lot of pressure down there and check her and she's complete ten centimeters. And so then. I say okay so what we're gonna do the next contraction when you feel contraction you know you're going to get your legs back. Or if she's on her side you're gonna get one leg-up or if you wanna push start pushing on your hands and knees of. I feel like babies in opposition. Start pushing with her on hands knees or in a different position So we start pushing. And i say okay you know get a leg back or get both legs back and take a big deep breath in and hold it like you're going like you're jumping into a cold pool Because a lot of times what people say what people do is they say. And they don't they don't hold hold their breath with that guided pushing. So it's not. You know with goping goddess pushing with non directive pushing can push however you want and a lotta times your success successful with not holding your breath and you push your baby out just fine. I say just work with your body push out feels good. Okay have girls. They need a little bit more guidance. They need to hold their breath. Some to really work in the right spot so i say okay you know take a deep breath in hold it like you're jump into a pool of water and bear down like you're pooping so we want to push as hard as you. Possibly you know hard as you can. We're gonna try and hold that for six to ten seconds and then breathe out breathe back in and we do that about three to four times with each contraction and you know we kinda see what works if that positions working well for you and you like pushing like that. We keep going as long as babies descending coming down. If it's not working so well maybe we go onto your side. Maybe we go on your hands and knees. We tried to different position. Maybe we try some non directed pushing and you just kinda give like little kind of slow grungy pushes But yeah everybody's a little bit different. But i would say that's probably the most popular way too. Common for hospital bursted do different positions. I only ever knew the position with the legs up for your kind of like sitting up right. Yes so. I think the trend is. We're starting to be more informed about. Doing different positions during pushing and during delivery is good for mom. It's good for a baby But i would say generally yes most hospital settings they people are still pushing on their backs with their legs back now. What i would say to that is. I'm not super anti push. Only push on your back only do directed pushing you know some. Some people are very like you know. Don't ask you have to make sure to tell them not to push on your back. Okay but you know that's fine. I'm more like if you're comfortable on your back. Like i was even without an epidermal i was very comfortable pushing like pretty much on my back or kind of a little bit on my side. So that's what i would tell moms is like okay. You do have other options. But you might find that. It's like pretty comfortable to push on your back in. It's pretty effective now. I think there was just a study that came out not too long ago. That said that if you haven't epidermal it's actually you get a lot more. It's a lot more effective if you're pushing on your side so we're starting to see that a little bit more become the trend but yeah i think it's just you know still years of. That's the way that it's been done. And that's the way it's been taught in medical school and when we you know rain rotations and everything so it's just breaking that trend so but i would say yes unfortunately to inter question that that is still still the common position..

But we're going to ask you a lot of other things but we won't ask you that unless you labor delivery song. We don't know about one of those up yet. i mean. could it be a good idea. Good calming tool or something. Who knows i mean there are so many i feel like i feel like i just got that question from someone the other day of like what would be your like at the end of the podcast. They were like what would be your birth song. If you could pick any song. And i was. Like i feel like the go-to is like push it by salt and pepper flakes. I take talk where it was. It was a tiktok of a lady. She obviously had an epidural because she was about to sharabia out and just super calm but it was like the dad was in there and the his mom was in there and his brother i think was like in the background and they all were like wrapping that song as she started beat boxing and she was like singing. That song is really cute babies. Crowning she's exactly up at earl is life. I tell you what we get tons of questions from new moms pregnant woman nervous about what to expect. So what is your best advice for somebody who is going to soon to give birth. Yeah there so many right. I mean i wish i could just say like learn everything that you possibly can but really. That's kind of my advice is do as much education as you possibly can before delivery So that's what we're all about mommy. Labor nurse is providing much info as possible out there in a fun way where it doesn't feel like super boring to read and look at because we know that there is just so much out there and you feel so so overwhelmed As you know. I've been a i have two boys so i've been a first time on before and i just know that you know there's like i mean you're like okay. I got to start thinking about birth plans at this point. I got to start thinking about you. Know just diabetes. Test at this point and i have to start in. Its and then you get to the end. When you're in your third trimester and you're thinking about you know okay. Let me think about my registration. My baby shower and my you know doing the room and like oh yeah. I don't even know if i what are the options for pain. Do i get an epidural. Do i get that if there's like so much stuff so we have a really really great. It's it's we really should have an app but it's like emails that we give people every single week of like what to expect in this week of your pregnancy. This is what you can expect this week. This is what's coming up like. These are some blog articles that we read. These are some guests episodes. That i did. These are some instagram posts. You know you can look at. Because i think a lot of times people even come to my page. And they're like oh this is like so great but i don't even know where to start because there's so much out there so that offer shirley like my best advice is just know that it's overwhelming but just read as much as you can. I see so many first time. Moms go into labor. Go into birth and and come away come away from it and say man. I was just like all of this stuff. Just happened to me and i was completely blown away and i had you know. I wish i had done this. And then their second birth you know. They're they're thinking they're looking into other options like we have so many moms who say they had an unscheduled c-section and i wish i had known xyz. So i could. Have you know prevented this. And then they do a lot more education the second time but yeah education. That's what we're about at mommy labor nurse so yeah i think that's great because we were kind of carleen eric talking about how like it can feel very overwhelming especially as a new mom but to be an saying. Expect the unexpected. When it comes down to labor and delivery but being informed can feel so empowering i feel especially when you you've never been through it before and it's something that you're does like learn you learn as you go but when you're informed you at least have that base and i can make your own choices and i feel like that's just like trying to empower women to be to be able to advocate for themselves and make their own choices and not know what their options are. Yeah absolutely at. I totally agree. We agree so much that we have a couple of different birth courses and we try to teach about all the different options. Because sometimes you fall into the trap of like okay. Like i've had people who have gone come to my agent. Sent me messages about okay. I took this supernatural natural. Based course but then i ended up getting an epidural and i felt like i was a failure because of it because i took this really really great course about going natural and i really wanted to but then i changed my mind and i just changed my mind during bertha wanted to get an epidural and i felt like such failure after i took this course. So we're like okay. I'm gonna we have right now. We have two different kinds. So there's one like for someone who really really wants to go natural but we also tell you about and about other payment options. Then we have one for moms like epidermal. That's my that's my jam. So we i give them that information obviously and then we also have a section in there. it's called oops. I accidentally went natural accidentally. Went unmedicated because that happens as well and we have moms. I was gonna say yeah. We have plenty of moms. Who i mean even with first births. It doesn't even have to be your second or your third birth- that they're like okay. I'm super set on my editor on there we call. They're married to their epidurals. Like no way were doing this without and then they go so incredibly fast like you did baby in your closet. I'm they go so incredibly fast. That oh my gosh. What do i do now. And it's like super crazy traumatic and we want to avoid that too so we feel like if we give information about everything then even if something happens that's not according to your plan or what you were set out to what you've envisioned your birth was going to be like you can come away with it with hopefully not trauma Because you were informed..

Well you touched on a tiny bit when we were when you mentioned the haradim of the ultra orthodox in israel actually in lots of places and you mentioned the in israel the infection rate among ultra little excuses forty percent or they account for forty percent rather the infections and only twelve percent of the population. This is as i say a phenomenon jewish communities around the world in new york and even here in london. There was controversy this week in london where it emerged that a wedding. Indoor wedding celebration at happened in Ultra-orthodox school said to be four hundred guests. I mean this is at a time when people are not even going to see their own. Elderly parents the indoors. Nobody seeing anybody. And so the four hundred Gathering you know distressed people a lot. It's led to the standoff scenes. With the police. In his trying to enforce the rules in these standoff. Some people have been very shocked by these images of burned out buses and he's ready to police firing in the center and i saw that one. Hurry the activists tweeted the these scenes of rioting at central were proof that ultra orthodox schools have to keep on Staying open even though every other school is closed because if they don't And the young people don't have a place to go then of course they're gonna run. Go out on the streets and they'll be trouble so all this trouble that we are causing is an argument for why you have to let in causing more trouble so that we weren't cause more i mean it is just so circular the logic keep all schools open say that we get our kids off the streets. Otherwise they'll riot. I think that kind of logic is is about almost in the purest sense and and so the haredi spokesmen who came up with that. I think can could get a hood spur award. Perhaps along with the organizers that huge hasidic wedding in netanya. I've also seen pictures or again hundreds of people indoors. I mean it is a big problem it is i'm gonna because we didn't mention what spend narran just got a little bit of the mench just a little bit because i did speak. Do you know you the message.

He lost his mother and brother in the same month to corona virus and while he was sitting schivonne mother. He lost his father as well. This is really like the story of job and he was used on television. I spoke to begging the holiday community. Please wake up. This is something that you must realize that we have to wake up and we have a community be more responsible deserving mention. I'm with you on the nation.

Joe biden issued a statement this week. The in a way in any normal circumstances would have been just boilerplate abnormal unremarkable And the key thing. It was that this statement mentioned in the first sentence jews and antisemitism as part central part of the holocaust and as i say you wouldn't think that is news except this time four years ago holocaust memorial day when there was a new president donald trump he managed to issue a statement that didn't mention either jews or antisemitism and that somehow made the blended in the holocaust as if it was just we regret all the losses of the second world war all something that was the language and so.

There i feel as britain did fumble. Bully could have. It's an island. For heaven's sake. It really could have sealed itself off. Israel has that you particular advantage as read. You just one. Main entry point in the form of these. Two countries had kind of naturally advantages and certainly from the british point of view. I feel it did kind of messed them up. You know. i'm curious about what i every time. I kind of listen to what is happening. In britain and i kind of remember we talked about that The grim number one hundred thousand deaths remember some time in april. Someone said that twenty thousand deaths would be a good outcome and we were shocked by this but you have passed twenty thousand by by by a mile. It's just it's really shocking. And i think one thing. I always wanted to ask you is what is what is the opposition. Do i mean just cure starmer head of labor. Did he does he attack. The government is or is sort of a polite we're during we're in a war situation a warlike situation. We're not going to going to do anything about it. What is really in question for opposition politicians and he decided very early on remember. He arrived the new labour leader in the midst of this pandemic in april had to give his victory speech via zoom. He's not being able to be kind of regular normal leader. now he decided to stretch. You'll be constructive opposition. We're not gonna do opposition opposition sake and so very often when they announced the government announced new rules on lockdown mask wearing straightaway. He's up to say s. i agree. I support the government. The differences the what. He's you know he. This is going to be helpful for him. Get long term is. It's several key moments. He suggested a different path for example in september. He said we've got to go for a circuit breaking a second lockdown and boris. Johnson dismissed him and said that was ridiculous and A few weeks later he ended up doing it and so at each stage. Actually because we can say. I've been supporting the government but i have been in the right place three or four weeks before they were. So that's useful but you gave me on something interesting. Which is the politics. And i think there's a fascinating question or parallel between the situation for netanyahu and the situation for johnson. Which is a question accommodate commentator here it this week is what do voters remember. Do they only remember the end of the story. Or this was a piece by tak-taking the atlantic do they remember the end of the story or the whole story throughout now if the story ends in both places israel i'm here with a successful mass vaccination. That was faster than any of their neighbors. Maybe fastest in the world. Maybe that's that's the end of the movie and everyone stands up and cheers all. Do they remember all the pain and agony Jer the dot eu there and terrible mistakes and for boris johnson. His whole political future may hinge on that. But you know big deepen that away.

"Did the best it could and the reply to that obviously is will. Your best isn't good enough. It's an odd situation because it's going hand in hand with the these other numbers which show britain doing really well in terms of vaccination and so there was this old cognitive dissonance this kind of disconnect where on one side of your mouth you want to say. This government have screwed this up terribly. Look at this terrible death. Toll and and this unwanted record is being the the highest proportion of death toll anywhere in the world and on the other hand you know. The don't collation rate very rapid especially in comparison with britain's european neighbors and there's this standoff now going on between astrazeneca make the so-called oxford vaccine who are not giving enough supply to the european union and they're angry they haven't got what they want. It is sort of disconnect and amina. I look at this. I think of israel which is the same disconnect. Surely where you've got on the one hand amazing number vaccination numbers proportionately biggest in the world but also the infection rate still rising. Yeah last week. I think we hit the both marks. We're the most vaccinations per capita in most cases per capita There are a few things that are similar between our two countries. I mean in the way that first of all we both have national health service. That i think it'd be helpful. Especially with the with the vaccination rollout we both our countries that could close down their borders. If need be in. Israel did do that in the very first stages of the corona virus during the first case in israel was found in february twenty eighth and they closed down every the whole country march twelfth right so that was a very speedy sort of reaction. I think the uk kind of fumbled. The ball on that wild. And and so i was trying to be british and polite about that so the ball and not terribly failed but at the beginning of it was actually a very a very good beginning. What happened again. As the crisis game became a prolonged crisis where we're very good as israelis coming together at a short six day war thing but not in a very prolonged crisis and the two things that became sort of artillery tillis healed first of all the the We talked about this last time but community that sort of did not adhere to restrictions.

Which is it's that position. Which even if it isn't about to happen it just in theory holds the place where jews can say. That's the kind of israel i want to support. It may not be there now. But that's in principle the position on comfortable with and i suppose what i'm saying. Is that labor. When it was a big bulky party was that sentiment in institutional form in concrete form. You could say i yes to your liberal. Non non israel supporting. i two don't like bb. I'm for the other guy who's the opposition the problem with being so fragmented is there isn't another guy you know there's nobody who cuts through. There's no name that's known outside back in the eighties or nineties. Let's say take the nineties. People new people follow politics. Knew there was a horse race between sharon sharon netanyahu on one side and the perez rabin on the other. These were internationally known names now. Bbc's is the only name that is known outside the country. It is just one person the fact that he has been there so long. Twenty five plus years has an effect on in terms of just. It's it's a tool. It's a tree that so tool that nothing can grow in the shade in terms of profile outside.

"You could say we may dislike the current government of israel but we identify with this stream in israeli life the israeli labor party and so it meant it was very easy. It was a kind of easy to dance move. You had to make to say. Okay whatever's going on israel but we identify with this tradition with this stream. And you know you could so for example in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when i was at school. There was controversy about the sabra and shatila massacres in lebanon obviously committed by Phalangist christian philanthropist militias but israel. The defense minister the time ariel sharon held responsible by israeli inquiry. It's at four hundred. Thousand israelis went on the streets of tel aviv. To protest people outside israel could say that we identify with were anti-israel we identify with them and labor was the kind of vessel for that so to read now that the party that mirror of michaela now leads may not even clear the threshold to get into the next knesset. And you know. I know the it major squeak in but the fact that even a question isn't just a big historic shift. The party that founded israel. It means. it's quite difficult for people who want to be pro israel without being pro israeli government. Where who do. They root for who they identify with now. I don't wanna. I don't wanna ruin the theory but i. I don't think that the you built it up so beautifully but i. I don't think that the ideas are dead or that the own people who follow it. There's a difference between saying. I don't wanna identify being leftist but i believe in certain values. Maybe i don't wanna call him that way. Maybe i don't go. Vote for labour. By the way there are a lot of other baby too many parties on that part of the political spectrum in israel writers. There's issues there's labor party in and minutes. Of course so i don't think the ideas are dead. I don't think if you're if you're looking to identify with certain ideas they still exist. And it's just that after you you know what happened. Know if we have to sort of cram twenty five years of israeli history and in two minutes but obviously what happens. Israeli society was that to attemps to bring peace right in one thousand nine hundred also. Of course two thousand camp david with iraq in trying to make peace again and both instances after oslo with a lobbying. Npr's and bach both instances led to this literally blowing up in the israeli public space right with dark Years of terror attacks against israelis so israelis felt like and again to the extent that i can represent the mainstream opinion was. Wait a minute if this is what. You're trying to sell us right. If you're trying to sell us peace and what we get is bomb blast in cafes in buses and in shops we don't want to buy this anymore And so the whole idea of the what the left stands for and you mentioned one thousand nine hundred two. It's standard could stand for antiwar and then peace turned into something that is hard commodity to sell it begins. It becomes even harder commodity. Self netanyahu suddenly is the person who says. Wait a minute. I'm the peacemaker right. I took this..

"You mentioned the Janice decision the. Agency. Fee Decision is one in which the mark, a strong attack on organized labor. I did want to get back to that for a in one case, which was you said that in Vermont and northern new. England it had not really had all that much of a negative impact on the labor movement. What about nationally is the Fisher different if you look at the whole country? I think if you were to look at the major public. Employees. Was a direct attack in public employee unions. You will see that it did not have the devastating effects of that. The right wing that the Anti Union forces of capital we're trying to we're trying to elicit. Largely. Labor has retained its memberships across the board in number of states as took down. And that's a problem but it was not the existential threat that some feel it was going to be. Because the way to mitigate. That issue is to be a good union to be rank and file driven. To. Involve members in the decision making process and to address advocate for the interest of the worker and for the most part or unions across area us across the country have done that. But they're chipping away every day they try to chip away more and more of the rights that we have. If you look at union density levels that we had in the nineteen fifties, you know when we're talking thirty forty percent now you look at national statistics can have labor hovering around perhaps just below ten percent. It's shows how Silla generations of Anti Union ministrations frankly despite the window-dressing both Republican and Democratic administrations. You can see that that That there's challenges and Labour has tried to overcome those challenges by organizing new workers and I think we're entering a new era of organizing more. Progressive Unionism. Unionism whereby the unions not just advocating for their member's interests. But also for the interest of the general poet and I see that as the future uh flavor. And Talk to me a little bit about what some of the individual bytes have been. You you. It sounds like there have been perhaps not not as. Not As large scale in attack as Janice decision decision very many times. You'll thank but sounds like maybe there have been some smaller steps and so on. That have taken that have diminished the role of of unions in America's working Americans working lives. What have some of those steps been and have been individual bills in Congress other steps the executive. Branch. Has Taken and. And then we'll talk about I think an agenda to. To reverse them maybe make improvements. Sure. Well, one of the most. Serious Attacks last year give or take the trump administration through a rule change change. Mandated that it was now illegal for home healthcare workers. Organized in various states to even have voluntary union dues, subtractive paycheck. So all ready with Janice and previous decision with specific to home healthcare workers. it was already ruled that mandatory. You can do We're not. We're not allowed by sprinkler decisions and this rule change that even if you sign a card and voluntarily say I am a member of the Union. this this rule would prevent that money from coming out of your check now in Vermont. We have about eight thousand home healthcare workers organized into. Asked me local FRITO chip. So, what that role would have done is it what of mandated that? Union Rep, golden round and individually with eight thousand different across the state. To ASK THAT THEY SET UP A. Some sort of us. Paying arrangement that's not practical. Scale of how that would work in California that has engine tens of thousands of home healthcare workers. I it's not practical and designed specifically to destroy those unions and mentioned home healthcare workers. Who are doing God's work during the pandemic and who are not paid nearly enough. Of what they'll work. To try to make it so they don't have a union now here in Vermont we were lucky. not just luck. There's politics involved. We have a very good attorney. John Donovan. Who viewed that rule change and determined that because our home healthcare workers are paid? Third Party heiress that will change not apply. We dodged the bullet on that and we are pleased to have TJ Donovan as a attorney general police endorsement selections well. But in states like California, this is potentially devastating and it's these things which on the one hand you could. Try to argue with a straight face that it is somehow fair reasonable but they're clearly aimed at nothing less than destroying union. The powers that be in this country the capitalist class, and a largely the political I sit supported by them. They don't want workers have say they don't want us to be an advocate for increases to minimum wage. They don't want us to fight for a liberal age. They don't want universal healthcare. They don't want workers to have a say in conditions on their shop floor they want to go back to the robber baron. They want to go back to a time when few people dictate to all of us. Are, working logical and to be and what the conditions under which we let Labor going to be. that is not acceptable. That is a system that supported a child labor. It's supported a sixteen hour days. And we're not going back and we're ready to fight to the now to not just hold onto what we have to not just rea-, seek to retain those elements of FDR's new deal which were benefit society but to go well beyond, that can frankly to fight for a green deal to address these economic. Challenges that we're facing presently. The, the Labor movement I think you can. You can see on the ground kind of some of the results of. A diminished labor movement just for instance.

They are getting incredible amount of work for free or for very low cost and. The cost is paid. The worker is unfathomable.

If we know of one thousand cases, there are probably ten thousand
