"That's already got unbearable conditions for nurses and health care workers and hospitals. And so you saw very rare moment in America, where several unions that usually compete, teamed up And they won in the end, and there did they D privatized the hospital. Yes, they challenge the orthodoxy of the free market. They made the kind of demand that's very unusual, which is we want this to be run by the public, And I think that that is a model campaign for so many reasons. Also going on an open ended strike by registered nurses going up against tenant health care, a giant for profit corporation in Massachusetts there six weeks into a strike that hasn't gotten national story last I looked. So why do you think Amazon got so much attention? I mean, obviously Amazon, right? Where there other factors at play. There is this obsession with defining the blue collar presenting the image of workers as people who go to factories when, in fact Most are largely generalized workforces in the health care sector in the education sector. Now Amazon is and should be a target. There are Somali workers and an Amazon facility in Minnesota, who have several times walked out over being denied the right to pray on their break time because of time off task. Time off task being the reason why some workers apparently resorted to urinating into plastic bottles because going to the bathroom was time off task. I mean, the behavior of this company is sick. There's a lot of interesting campaign, so they're going on that need a lot of labor coverage in the tension's So is it fair to say that basis deserves attention? Yes. Oh, my God, Of course. Is it fair to say that? Once the campaign the best summer move forward, I think it would be hard to stop the kind of attention it was getting, And then there was a decision at the union to attract a lot of national attention. It would seem that that would be a good thing. Despite the fact, As you say the media can be a terrible distraction for the workers. It would seem to be an opportunity to put pressure on the company. I mean, it's fine to put pressure on the company, but that's not what's gonna help you win the election. My focus has an organizer is to try to teach future Amazon workers and the Amazon workers invest immer and every worker in the United States of America what it's going to take to unionize their facility and getting a lot of media attention is not on the checklist of organizer's. It's just not Let's talk about what news consumers should watch out for in coverage like this. The main thing is evidence of a majority of the workers publicly supporting the campaign. If you had seen hundreds and hundreds of actual Amazon workers from the best more facility at the plant gates, that would be an indication that they were in really good shape, too, when the campaign but that's not who was at the plant Gates. Union staff supporters from outside, but it wasn't Amazon workers. When you have a campaign that was covered as closely as this one and the readers the viewers news consumers were led to believe. That they had a good chance to win. The fact that they really didn't win contributes, perhaps to Ah, we can't win narrative. It's very tricky. The Pro act is being debated in Congress. So there are people who are saying it's essentially not possible to win a national relations board election given how stacked the deck is against workers, and by the way It's hard as hell and we should pass the Pro act. But if we has organizer's believe that we need labor law change to win unionization elections were condemning ourselves to a very bleak future because we have been trying to change labor law since the 19 sixties and President Johnson we tried to do it with the majority in both houses under Jimmy Carter. We tried to do with the majority in both houses under Bill Clinton. We tried to do with the majority of both houses under Barack Obama. Just to be clear. We have been trying to pass something like the Pro act for longer than I've been alive. Therefore, what's dangerous about the narrative is that it sends a message to people that they can't win when, in fact, in the world of journalism, there had been one victory after another at a ton of media institutions in the last couple of years. So it's obviously not true that workers can't win. Which doesn't mean we shouldn't pass the Pro act now in terms of the can't win narrative. Talk to me about the Smithfield meat packing plant attempts to unionize beginning in 1994 with the first election. Smithfield Meat packing plant was at the time the largest meat packing plant in the United States of America and United from commercial workers, which is the parent union of the R W D issue who was involved in Bessemer committed many of the same mistakes. And the first round election in the Smithfield plant, and then they filed objections the election and it takes way too long for the National Labor Relations Board to do the investigation. They're underfunded. The workers often are just demoralized. They finally eventually won the right to get a rerun election and what happened? They lost by far greater numbers. Smithfield did what I'm suggesting Amazon was trying to do in Bessemer. They didn't just go in there to say we want you to vote. No. They went in to deliver a beat down. They did unionize. Finally Smithfield on the third try correct. They did on the third try. And what did they do? Write the new team that came in were trying to both. Ensure that workers themselves were challenging the employer on the plant for on a regular basis. At the same time that they were running a deeper campaign was a lot of local community involvement. They did wind up one in agreement that constrained the employer from the same kind of behavior that Amazon committed. It shouldn't have taken that long. And if they had run the campaign with a lot of the same tactical approach the very first time, you know, it's very likely would have had a different outcome. What would you say to those who say Look when a union loses an election? Maybe it's because the workers just don't want it. I don't believe that A majority of workers didn't actually want the union in the best mood facility. I have no evidence of that. I just don't believe it because I believe most workers in this country would choose to have a union and the brilliant research Kate Bronfenbrenner did in the 19 nineties. Super Incredible research done by Cornell is labor program showed in a huge analysis of national relations board elections. Most workers want the union until the union avoidance firm shows up and coaches the management team had to run a grotesque intimidation campaign against the workers. It must stop. We must reform labor law, but we also must offer our very best to every worker when they decide to stick their neck out and try and form a union. We have to look at the research know the history and know what it takes to win and at least give the workers a fair shot in a hard campaign. Jane. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Jane. Michael Levy is a labor organizer. Currently a senior.

"Sound. You hear the sound of people's heads absolutely exploding a few times in previous episodes. I've mentioned the people auction going. On at christie's this is the first time the famous auction house has auctioned off a completely digital good. They had previously included an f. T. versions of some physical items that were up for auction but this was the first time it was just an nf tea while the final bids are in and the price paid for people's the first five thousand days was sixty nine million three hundred and forty six thousand two hundred fifty dollars first of all the folks over on wall street. Bets are in utter disbelief that the price wasn't sixty nine million. Four hundred twenty thousand and sixty nine dollars. Second of all crypto. Twitter is absolutely frigging losing their minds. This is a crescendo. Perhaps the first of many but definitely the first of the nfc mennea sweeping the world. I've given the background before but in short. Nfc's are non fungible tokens non fungible means that rather than every token being like every other token in other words each. Bitcoin is like each other bitcoin. They're mutually interchangeable. Each other is equivalent to each other. Tether these are cryptographic. Unique tokens that uniqueness lens them well to the actual owning quote unquote of the original quote unquote of creative work. Like a piece of art and of have been a part of the crypto space. For years i mean remember crypto kitties but over the last few months and especially the last few weeks they have had a major breakout. There have been two really important categories within that the first is actually in the sports collectible slash trading cards space last year. The team that brought you crypto katie's launched nba top shots in conjunction with the nba. These are effectively a new type of trading card featuring efficiently. Licensed video highlights. Now i was watching this and things started reasonably but they have really picked up over the last couple months last month. Nba top shot process. More than two hundred fifty million dollars in sales from one hundred thousand buyers more than that admitted a whole new group of wales a wall street journal article today was called the whales of nba. Top shot made a fortune buying lebron highlights. They were the early to the hottest. Nf market and their collections are now worth millions of dollars. They take a look at people. Like michael levy a thirty one year old financial analyst. Who spent one hundred seventy five thousand dollars over six months whose collection is now worth twenty million plus or andy chore. Leeann a twenty seven year. Old dev who back in his younger days traded pokemon bought sneakers but then more recently bought. Thirty eight hundred. Nba top shot moments. That are now worth a collective fifteen million. I think it's really important to point this side of the market out because in many ways it is a completely different. Demographic than the crypto punks art type people and frankly the people interested in people at least on an artistic level. But i also think it's worth noting that collectibles in general are going crazy. Golden auctions is a huge trading house for cards memorabilia. It sarah on march seventh. Golden tweeted prior to two thousand twenty. There only ten cards that ever sold for one million dollars plus in history last night we sold five cards for a million dollars. Plus clearly there is something going on in these sports card collectible market as well and on a smaller level i track a small index of magic the gathering card prices just to keep track of what older cars in that space are doing and it's up four hundred and fourteen percent in the last year. This is going to be relevant for discussion in a little bit about what's really underlying what's happening in an f. Teas but for now. Let's get back to the art. There has been a ton of focus. Here i people were gobsmacked by the price of crypto punks which are selling for thousand sometimes even tens of thousands hash masks or more of the same but all in all these things felt pretty well contained within the crypto space they were insider games insider speculation and insider collectors over the last few weeks that shifted we saw people sell on nifty gateway for more than six million. We had musicians jumping in just in blau who performs as three lau sold a set of thirty three. Nfc's for over eleven million dollars. Grimes may just under six million dollars. Kings of leon released an album last week with full. Ft's we've seen more sports stars jump in with gronk releasing a bunch of nf teas and then we've had brand seemingly determined to ruin the party for everyone like taco bell who released a set of tease last week as well. Of course alongside the hype. The backlash has increased as well. I mentioned on yesterday's show that there is a huge group. Were now fighting on environmental grounds. Just to give you a sample of some of those tweets per the biggest thing. The nfc sh tells us that we have an extremely short amount of time to destroy the capitalist system before it scorches all live from the earth in of a three percent rate of return. Here's another one the. Nfc thing has drawn a line in the sand between the artists who are annoying for evil minting enough tease and artists who are annoying for good cyber bullying people minting. Nfc's until dimensions mentions are so exhausting. They stop like we're all annoying but it's how we use our powers finally. Let's do one more tweeting things here and there but my stance on teases final. It's horrible for the environment and a very critical time in the climate crisis. Therefore if you participate in it. I will judge you freely in gladly and no longer support you so i tweeted this out yesterday and got a huge number of responses of people who have seen similar things and keep in mind. These aren't like random accounts or at least these tweets are getting hundreds of likes responses. And re tweet so. It seems clear that there is this counter lash happening even as we speak all in all the point. Is that even before today. Things in this space. We're getting pretty heated. But then the people auction closed

"Whole Halloween thing. Should they do it? Do it Right now It's a go, but well see, I know every city probably across the country is taking a look at this health officials inside whether it's the right thing to do or not. A lot of you in the text lines seem to be saying Mia, go ahead with it, Do it safely. Some are saying that is their worst holiday during a pandemic. But pandemic that Halloween where you're going door to door strangers, and you interacting and Yelling out trick or treat. All the aerosols that that'll spread. So you know that's that's that the other side of the coin there, But here's somebody who will definitely agree. I think I think that the Halloween should go on because he's a fantasy costumes, Jorge Garcia, and that is the center of the universe. We know here in Chicago when it comes to this that time a year. How you doing, George? Fine. You're in, you know. Okay, okay. Yeah, I did. I was wondering what would the health officials would say here and I guess so far. We don't. We don't have a word on this. No, I think it's going to trip your treat. And I think they have a lot of house party little parties here in there. I mean, everyone needs a break. They can't where math. Do we lose you, George? No, No, you said so The kids wear masks, and you could maybe math in the costumes and they weren't clubs and stuff, So I think they would be safe yourself and they are going to trick between with black party from house there. I'm sure it's one of my favorite favorite holidays. I really I just love it, especially, you know, when your kids that kind of thing they get into it. It's just It's super fun. I usually love it, and I just wonder how everyone's going to get creative this year and celebrating it in the way that they feel comfortable. I think they will. People have great imaginations, great imaginations and they're goingto let loose. I I really, really believe in. In fact, that was at the store this morning, people were buying masks his makeup. So I was impressed. You know, we had three pro customers in there. So is the mask kind of part of the past two now because you got in there we also have the rubber latex miss. We have about 1000 different type. And we told the couple those that's normal and they were like thick hide by 35. Most of the cost of half mast duty superheroes have man like that, and he had brought so they're pretty face. Are there pandemic related costumes that you see? Not there? Um, I don't know. I don't think so. I mean, they have the light suits that people are by bad, but I don't think so. I don't think they think they want it. They want to get the makeup it the hard way. Everything you know, everything goes during Halloween does sure does. George hey, what's the most popular so far? I know it's early. It's September early September, But is there any sort of feeling of what people like her? They're going Political here to the superheroes are going great and trap net are going good, and we're doing a lot of trump wig. So we do the customized wig for a happy character movie star. Whatever. So that really helps about people that will do that for us to such a fine job of fantasy costumes, and I bet it still gets busy. I know you're going to do social distancing and all that kind of thing way have all those things thermometers and this in the heavens. Yes, Normally that line is like a half a mile long. Now it'll be like the last week were open 24 hours that week. We don't know what we're going to do the last week, But Norman we're open 20 for the last seven days for the last 20 years. So they're here. We may go longer hours. Just a couple nights for 25. We haven't yet We want to see how things were going. All right. Well, thank you for waiting in Georgia. I appreciate it. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. Fantasy costumes. Jorge Garcia. You know, it's interesting. Halloween this year falls on a Saturday to which normally you know how the city goes. You know how places go when it's on a Saturday. It's some It gets a little crazy. I just wondered this year. How scaled back that will be what we'll see out there. Tribune editorial board. They wrote a Nice piece on this today, saying of pleading with the mayor to please, Please do not do not cancel Halloween and Michael Levy is part of the Tribune editorial board. And so have you found time to talk to us. How you doing, Michael? Ryan. I'm great, Thanks. Thanks for having me out. So you made the case and it's and it's It's a strong one. I'll say it's a fun. One is a fun read in the Chicago Tribune about why you should not cancel the Halloween kind of speaking directly to Mayor Lightfoot and all the things that the reasons why what's the best case for Michael Well, First of all, it was just fun to write something, you know, decide, but you know we were in a lot of serious stuff. You know everyone in so we'll need a break too, like everybody, and that's that's sort of the point here. And that is given the numbers given when we are with pandemic, given the fact that everybody knows how to take care of themselves. It doesn't seem too much of a stretch to encourage the mayor and everyone that you know. Be responsible. But take your kids out. Let them go out trick or treat. Do it socially responsibly away. I think of it is even order a pizza and have it. No touch delivered. And the trick or treating can be sort of the same thing in reverse. You go. And you, uh, you know, your kid opens back up and get the candy and goes no touch. No risk. Okay. Yeah, You know, it's interesting because Dr most said would point out. I think the biggest point the biggest challenge would be the spitting of the trick or treating the shouting. And then things get kids do But if there were a mast, and they're wearing it in schools now, and we're getting used to it. I know Although even the young kids I know they're getting usedto wearing on my five year old nephew, he's he's wearing a mask all the time. He wears it in a restaurant until he starts eating and they're getting used to doing it. You can incorporate into your Halloween costume. How exactly, you know when I think there's a There's a funny dichotomy here, too. And you know who the kids love Halloween who are not acting responsibly. It's not the little kids. The college kids, right kicks back on campus don't seem to be getting the message on so college kids don't get to celebrate. You know, we know campus because their campus is closed because they were partying responsibly. Well, that's on them A little, absolutely where they're being whether they're going to school or whether they're you know. They couldn't talk from home, so they get it. They know howto stare wearing your masks. They're being responsible and you could give him this. Every parent has to make a decision. But this is a way to talk about some of the big things but also on a runway in and then they get in the mayor's ear a little bit now I hope that she and it's not just every mayor in ordinary, it's the governor to everyone. You have to make these decisions about what to do so I know the mayor reads the Tribune. I'm sure every good mayor does. And I was just wondering. Have you heard? Have you heard any kind of response letter reading The tea leaves here? Do you have any feeling on where this decision will be here in the city of Chicago? No. Haven't heard from her, but I don't know, like like, you know, Like you said, I think we make a pretty good case. And And yeah, And then I looked again it where Illinois and I talked to an expert like consult on some of these things and think they're holding steady pretty nicely here, especially in the Chicago area. We are. We're not through the tough, scary woods yet. But you know the positivity rate protest in Syria, Pakistan well below the Equus on target are stable. Everyone knows the right way to behave, and that's why I think there's a window here. Say Come on, you know, let let him go trick or treating in their party if you can't do I don't think this year but letting the kids walk in everybody on social assistant. Uh, my kids are too old to do it. But I can't wait to see the kid would come by you and you and the piecing. Halloween we get the sense is going to happen with or without the blessing of politicians. So how about one more small nod to normalcy? And it's It's a great read in the Chicago Tribune, Michael Love. Thanks for thanks for calling in this show, and we'll see. Let me know if the mayor mayor response, please. Very well. Thanks. Happy Halloween Early. Do you think we'll be happy? One way or the other and you'll like it..

"Morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington, D C and I'm David Greene in Los Angeles. All right, With Election Day less than a week off Now, anxiety is running high. There's a lot of distrust a lot of suspicion. Activists and extremists on both the right and left are worried the other side is going to somehow steal the election. And they're making plans for what to do. If that happens, experts are warning. This is a toxic brew and that conditions are ripe for conflict and maybe even violence. NPR's Joel Rose has been looking into all of this. Hi, Joel. Hey, David, So I know you've been talking to people from across the political spectrum. I mean, as you listen to what they're saying, What are your impressions? While people are really worried on the right, they're concerned about the integrity of mail in ballots. We're hearing from President Trump, who is stoking those fears by claiming without evidence that the system is rife with fraud. And on the left. People are worried about another scenario. In their worst fears. Trump is ahead on election night and either his campaign or his Justice Department tries to end vote counting prematurely. And disputes over vote counting could go on for days or weeks, So activists and both sides are making plans to mobilize what is mobile eyes look like I mean, we've been hearing about these doomsday scenarios for weeks now about what might happen. Where could this all lead? Well, I've been talking to experts on conflict resolution. Many of them monitor elections around the world. But this year for the first time, they are turning their attention to the US election, and they're worried about the potential for violence here. Especially if protesters from different sides collide out in the streets. I talkto hrh IRB alien. He grew up in Lebanon and has worked in places like the Balkans and former Soviet states. Now he's director of the conflict resolution program at the Carter Center. And volume says he's been tracking deepening polarization in the US along racial and political lines. We have become intolerant. We have started the humanizing the other side. We are at the edge of an abyss, and we better see this and try to step back before it is too late. Other experts I've talked to say they're seeing the potential for conflict, too. And I've been talking to regular people on both sides who are feeling this rising tension. There's a lot of anxiety. I think there's some fear. I think there's some anger. You know, how could this be happening? Elaine Duncan lives in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D. C. Duncan and the members of her Quaker congregation have been planning what they're going to do if President Trump tries to declare victory before all states have finished counting the ballots. We are organizing affinity groups to take to the streets. If need be to make life difficult If there is a an attempted coup, a power grab By the Trump administration. They're so concerned that they're using the word coup to describe what might happen even if it involves lawyers and not the military. For the last few weeks, they've been holding virtual training sessions on zoom. They talk about the Quaker tradition of nonviolent resistance. And about how they might apply those principles to the current moment. Sessions are led by fellow Quaker Michael Levy, when coups are defeated their defeated very rapidly and we're talking about three days to a week. So if there is going to be an attempted coup, we need a lot of people to act very quickly. They're also worried about a violent response from supporters of the president. President Trump has drawn a lot of criticism for telling his far right supporters, some of whom have a track record of violence to quote standby. This weighs on Kirsten's all foe to its awful lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, outside Philadelphia, where she's helping organize a demonstration for the day after the election, part of a nationwide effort called Protect the results. There is always a touch of fear that goes with armed groups that could show up to try to intimidate people, But I think it's important to support the fact that everyone's vote counts. We feel that that's more important than letting fear ruler decisions. The Trump campaign has recruited a quote Army of Citizen Poll watchers and there's concern, particularly on the left aboutthe rolls. Self styled militias could play after a teenager allegedly shot and killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, earlier this year. And after the FBI says it thwarted a plot in Michigan to kidnap Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer, But the militia leaders I talked to say that's not what they're about. We're not going to just go start a fight. It's not gonna happen. And I'm not going to go down to Chicago or no show or Minneapolis or Washington D. C. I'm not gonna go there. Walt Madsen is the head of a group that calls itself the US Northern Militia in Wisconsin. He's an Iraq war veteran who's now a county supervisor, Madsen says he's been talking to a lot of other militia leaders and many of them feel like he does. Joe Biden does win the election. I'm not going to sit there and scream. He's not my president. Okay? I'm not going to go and take my militia and threaten the lives of other Americans. In fact, some of these militia leaders say they are afraid of the protesters on the left. No matter what way the election goes, there's going to be people to satisfied with the result, and the possibility for unrest is quite strong. Michael Lack. Amar is a team leader of the Southeast Michigan Volunteer militia. Black Amar says the members of his group are preparing to protect their communities if there's rioting or violent unrest, like the protests earlier this year in Seattle and Portland, if you're coming at my house and my family's I'm going to do everything in my power in every tool in my box to make sure that my family is safe..

This weighs on Kirsten's All foe to Alpha lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, outside Philadelphia, where she's helping organize a demonstration for the day after the election, part of a nationwide effort called Protect the results. There is always a touch of fear that goes with armed groups that could show up to try to intimidate people, But I think it's important to support the fact that everyone's vote counts. We feel that that's more important than letting fear ruler decisions. The Trump campaign has recruited a quote Army of Citizen Poll watchers and there's concern, particularly on the left aboutthe role. Self styled militias could play after a teenager allegedly shot and killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, earlier this year and after the FBI says it thwarted a plot in Michigan to kidnap Democratic governor Gretchen Whitmer. The militia leaders. I talked to say that's not what they're about. We're not going to just build started flight. It's not gonna happen. And I'm not going to go down to Chicago or no show or Minneapolis or Washington D. C. I'm not gonna go there. Walt Madsen is the head of a group that calls itself the US Northern Militia in Wisconsin. He's an Iraq war veteran is now a county supervisor, Madsen says. He's been talking to a lot of other militia leaders, and many of them feel like he does it. Joe Biden does win the election. I'm not going to sit there and scream. He's not my president. Okay? I'm not going to go and take my militia and threaten the lives of other Americans. In fact, some of these militia leaders say they are afraid of the protesters on the left. No matter what way the election goes, there's going to be people to satisfied with the result, and the possibility for unrest is quite strong. Michael Lack. Amar is a team leader of the Southeast Michigan Volunteer militia. Black Amar says the members of his group are preparing to protect their communities if there's rioting or violent unrest. Like the protests earlier this year in Seattle and Portland. If you're coming at my house and my family's, I'm going to do everything in my power in every tool in my box..

Thanks for having me, and what have people in the Muslim community in Christ Church been telling you. Well, I think you know, this is a community. That is numb with shock about what happened on Friday. Many of the people that I spoke with since arriving here on Saturday. Told me that you know, they're from war torn countries from Somalia there from Afghanistan, and they emigrated here, and they sort of felt like they hit the jackpot New Zealand is a developed country. It's got a good standard of living. It's small it's known for its religious and racial tolerance where they could practice their faith freely without fear, and then Friday's terrorist attack shattered their world, I met a man named shake for us. He attends the mosque where most of the victims were killed and three of his good friends were murdered. He hasn't slept since Friday. He said he went grocery shopping on Saturday and nearly had a panic attack. Because he was scared that a shooter was going to storm the grocery store, he says the nicest people he's ever met attend the mosques that were attacked. Here's what he said. Even though you didn't know this. The welcome is a hollow brother. Why.

"We also have michael levy michael is a former senior fellow here at the council on foreign relations he recently worked in the white house during barack obama's presidency as his energy and economic policy adviser he's also the author of the power surge energy opportunity and the battle for america's future mike thanks for dress my pleasure charlie i want to start out with you to give us a sense of the role of climate policy in us diplomacy in particular the european partners and we recently saw this play out in the in the group of seven summit in europe new talk a little bit about climate and us diplomacy i think the the climate issue has been at the forefront of the transatlantic dialogue certainly during the obama administration but even going back further in the sense that the the eu has been at the leading edge of efforts to fight climate change and has put in place policies to do so and a lot of effort during especially during the the second obama term went into negotiating the paris climate agreement might can go into more detail but the president spent a lot of time on the phone a lotta time twisting arms went to paris for the big guy gathering and so this was this was a top priority and i think that it helped convince europeans especially coming off the difficult bush years that the united states was again a team player and that it was willing to sacrifice shortterm economic gain for long term collective benefits.
