"And persecution. Because of the gangs over there, things are really dangerous. Because of violence in my home state of michoacan. If there was peace there, I wouldn't leave. If I returned home right now, they kill me. These men and women are from Honduras, Mexico, and Haiti, and I'll say death threats gang violence and extortion led them to flee their home countries. And this is where life liberty and the pursuit of happiness gets boiled down to simply being alive in order to have a life to live. So is pursuing this American Dream still worth it to them. Junior Antonio Ramirez says yes. Ramirez came from Guatemala with his family. We found them one hot morning sitting on the sidewalk, huddled together each wearing a hoodie, their backs up against the wall of a shelter called movimento who ended off meal. It was full, but he was hoping to be first in line if a spot opened up. When I asked him why he was there, his answer checked all the boxes I've been telling you about. We have to leave because of safety concerns because we had problems with the gangs where we were living. They were demanding rent for our business, extortion, you see. They also wanted my sons to join their game, but that's not something we approve of. My sons were raised well. They're educated and calm. The fear became real when the threats began. We either had to start paying up, or they would start killing us. So the decision to leave came quickly after that. We grabbed what little we had and got rid of other stuff as far as our neighbors and family members. We didn't tell them anything for their safety and for our own. We had to leave like we were fleeing, and that was really sad. Not being able to say goodbye to everyone. Driving from Guatemala City to Tijuana takes about 50 hours of travel. Ramirez explains why it took a lot longer. Not magnetic. It took us 6 days. Normally it takes three days, but there were lots of complications along the way. The first bus left us stranded, then we had to find another ride, and they left us in another town. It's a draining trip and a little dangerous. The immigration checkpoints are nice, and they treat you well, but there are also cartels and others that stop you along the way. We were told each one had their own territory, and that's the way it was. Every place we passed through they asked for our papers and where we're from, and they also asked us to pay for passing through their territory in order to continue safely. Ramirez made it clear to me a couple of times that he was never planning on leaving Guatemala. He liked his life there. He told me his wife was taking college classes and that his kids were enjoying being high schoolers. I noticed that every one of them had colorful streaks in their hair, which he explained by telling me his daughter had fun experimenting and was thinking about going into cosmetology. I asked him what he's hoping for in America. What he's hoping will be different. Over there, gangs at least aren't as prevalent and they aren't in contact with you as much. I trust the authorities over there more from what people have told me, it's a little safer. There was a reason Ramirez and his family were waiting outside of that particular shelter and what we meant to do. And that's because the people that stay there live in tents. This way, families can sleep together with a degree of privacy and safety and not have to be separated as they might be at other shelters. UC San Diego professor Fernández Medina says living as a migrant has changed. Shelters are different in the past shell to work for migrants to stay three or four or 5 days. And they come across to the U.S.. Now it's different in the shelters, migrants are staying months, even years. That brings us to Daniel Gutierrez. In Mayo company for manufacturing. In May, we marked one year in three months of living here in Tijuana. Is also from Guatemala. He's at a shelter in bahadur de Jesus with his family. We felt a little more hopeful staying in a border city like Tijuana. Ruthie has told us in the past year he had made three attempts to cross the border, and each time he was apprehended, he asked for asylum, but no explanation was given for why he was being sent back. The same thing happened all three times. There wasn't any difference whether I was there with

not to unionize but the NLRB found that the company had unfairly influenced the election so they're doing it all again for her view of the Amazon union vote this time around I talked to Ruth milkman chair of the school of labor and urban studies at the city university of New York It's very common for elections to be done over in cases where the national labor relations board which is the government agency that these matters when they find that there were what are called unfair labor practices on either the union side or the employer side So in this case they did find that Amazon had unfairly intimidated workers specifically by having a mailbox which had camera monitoring it which was where they were supposed to deposit their votes which gave workers the impression that they were being monitored and that Amazon was watching the way they voted which is not how it's supposed to work So in that situation this is not the first time that this has happened It's happened many many times Historically the board the NLRB orders a second election And so that's what's underway Is there any pattern in history when this happens when the NLRB does order a second election Because it unfair labor practices For whether the re vote comes out the same way or a different way Sure it can go either way you know and one can only speculate in this case but there definitely have been cases where subsequent elections were came out differently than the initial one Otherwise why would they bother you Yeah exactly Exactly Put to say against a backdrop here we have attempts in unionized other places we had an upstate New York Starbucks Yes Just a small number as I recall of stores at Starbucks No It was a two is that I couldn't remember exactly Well there were three elections and two of them were won by the union the third one the union failed to win enough votes to get recognition of the union so Starbucks you could say one that one or the ballot doesn't say Starbucks It says you know the union in question which in this case is called workers united or no union So no union one in the third store So is this a pattern a larger pattern with some nationally recognized names like Starbucks and Amazon and attempts to organize or is this pretty par for the course as it were Well in recent years there hasn't been a whole lot of this involving big name corporations So it's novel at the moment in that regard But things have we're in a kind of special moment in this regard So let me give you a little bit of background Unionization levels are at a historic low point only about 6% of private sector workers are union members today which hasn't been that low for more than a century Particularly more than the public Public sector is much more unionized And if you include them then the figure goes up a little to about 11% which still means that 9 out of ten workers are not unionized So that's the backdrop It used to be much higher and what's happened in the last few decades is that employers have really gone on the offensive to both prevent unions from succeeding when they do try to organize which they've developed a lot of strategies for that Some of which we saw on display in both Amazon and Starbucks actually And they've been pretty successful in doing that And then they've also weakened unions where they already exist or sometimes eliminated them So but.

"Reported for Mexico This week the U.S. briefly banned Mexican avocados after a U.S. inspector in the state of michoacan reported receiving threats But avocados and limes have long been used by drug curtails to help finance their violent business plans Emily green reports for vice news from Mexico and joined us from Mexico City Thanks so much for being with us Thanks so much for having me on How would you describe the royal cartel's have Agricultural business specifically avocados and limes Well avocados are an extremely lucrative business in Mexico Roughly $2.8 billion worth of avocados are exported from Mitra Khan to the United States every single year And so we're talking about lots and lots of money and what do cartels do They like to siphon off that money These organized crime groups use avocados they use limes as a sort of profit They tax them And so that's been a dynamic for a very very long time I think what sources tell me might be changing now is that is that organized crime groups are not just trying to tax these agricultural products or also trying to manipulate and control the market Is this what I say this is a Chicago and we would call in the United States a protection racket I mean members of the cartel who will say to a farmer you know nice farm you got here It would be a shame if something happened to it but you can pay us this fee and it'll be safe Right I think there's definitely some of that And the dynamics of how this business work they're complicated So it's not just so cut and dry that a cartel member goes to the farm and says gives me X amount of money What I've been told is that essentially the packing plant says we are going to pay the farmers again a $100 The cartel members would say don't pay them a $100 pay them $90 and you give us that extra $10 So at the end of the day the farmers are still paying the price but it may not be so directly that the cartel members are going straight to the farmers Let me give you the example of limes Blind prices have skyrocketed over the last year and part of the reason that's happened is that the cartels have told lime producers farm workers They can only work on the farm two days a week instead of the normal three days a week That means that there's less line to sell and the price of lime goes way up For right now the farmers are super happy because they're making more money because the price of lime is high but it's a delicate balance because at some point the organized crime groups they want more and more and more And at that point they say well if you don't do what we want we're going to kill you And so I think that this easy coexistence has gone on for a long time and sometimes it's the farmer's benefit but oftentimes it's not If it's just been known for some time why did it take until this week for a band to be in place It's because a U.S. employee for the Department of Agriculture was threatened while carrying out an inspection of the avocados I mean the violence in michoacan which is the major avocado producer which were 80% of avocados consumed in the United States come from Violence has been really bad there for a very long time And I guess this is not a new dynamic I mean this happens all over the world that there are horrible human rights abuses and I think the U.S. generally tends to look the other way until it affects one of their own Emily let me get you to reflect on something if we can Should those Americans who go to groceries and want to buy poultry that is humanely slaughtered or they go in and buy a new computer and don't want a lot of components to come from places in China where slave labor is employed How should they feel about buying avocados and lives What does it mean to live in this globalized world It's complicated I think we're all every day all the time making these choices and what are not black and white situations And I would say that's the case here too Avocados provides tens of thousands of jobs It has single handedly lifted the economy of the state of michoacan It means that tens of thousands of people do not migrate to the United States because they have jobs in vitro Khan so to say I am going to protest the violence by not consuming avocados I don't know that that would work I'm not saying don't do it but it seems a bit simplistic to me And at the same time it is troubling that there is so much violence around this industry and not enough attention paid to it Which is all a way of saying I don't know the answer to that question Well that's fair Vice news Mexico correspondent Emily green thanks so much for being with us Thank you Just go Fernandez knows how to help grade school students perk up at the end of the school day They all love and gun for like they love that song We don't talk about Bruno.

"Wow. I have to ask you in talking to immigrants in talking to people off the record from CBP. Are you seeing who's organ? I mean, who's giving Biden led us in t-shirts to the illegal immigrants? Is this all random and just amorphous? So look, there's a lot of organization in Mexico because obviously this has been going on for decades. And so there's NGOs. There's activism groups out down there because often whenever I post a video of people who have just crossed some people and they're like, oh, we'll call it nice, they're closer. It's because churches, charity organizations, they give them close because they cross the river and obviously they get dirty and wet. And so after they cross, they then change out of the clothes to get into a closet. But it's because they get the help in Mexico, whether they're various organizations. But it's also just because, you know, Brandon Darby over at breitbart. He did a very good job. Well, Brandon. He's a great guy. He actually explained to me that it's more of a kind of a psychological kind of propaganda on the cartel part because. The new clothes. Oh, because it makes you look cool. It makes you look fine. It's okay. Can I find everything? Okay, yeah, so it's actually kind of I mean, this is all very they've been doing and this is their everyday job. So let's break this down 'cause it's massively important. The charities who clothe and clean up near legal immigrants are actually helping the cartels because the cartels are making billions every day from the 25,000 per head they're taking or whatever it is. But at least it doesn't look bad. But this way, it looks okay. Yeah, exactly. And that's what's the most disturbing part about this entire crisis is just the fact that the only winner in all of this is the cartels who were making money on drugs and all this other stuff. And so that's why when as we were pointing to earlier, when they say, well, this approach to immigration is more humane. It really isn't. Because who also suffers when the cartels win. Mexicans. I mean, it's unbelievable. The state of michoacan right now is this is a side of a bloody turf war between different cartels and towns are being pulled towns are being taken over. But we don't hear about that because it's just another third world country basically. But the ripple effects from the border crisis doesn't affect us the United States, but also affects just regular Mexicans who have nothing to do with this. Absolutely. The most awesome.

I set up that used to be my son's bedroom, when there was no stereo system. So I got this thing called the Andover spin based turntable speaker. It's a one piece pretty excellent audio device that has an amp preamp built in, you just plug the speaker, or into the back of the turntable. And bam, you're ready to go for vinyl. And so I've dug out some of my LPs and put down the needle and listening to really cool music on the $300 Andover spin based turntable. So does it have a phono amp inside of it? Is that the idea that it has an example? It also is called Bluetooth. So if you're not spinning the disks, you get access to the celestial jukebox and can just use the speaker. Fantastic. Nice. And do you know if there are supply chain issues around that right now? Well, people will be able to order it if we link to it. You know, I got it pretty quickly. I have to say I was trying to time it for when I was home and it got there just in time. I was glad I was around. All right, that's great. We did an entire episode last week with Adrian. So it was super fun. I mean, despite the fact that we were talking about all of the supply chain woes. But it was all about the supply chain. So I had to ask. Mike, what's your recommendation this week? I'm going to recommend a YouTube channel that I just discovered. It is called day me Rancho two cosina, which is this my lovely Spanish pronunciation. In case you couldn't discern, that means from my ranch to your kitchen. And it is a cooking channel on YouTube. It is a woman like a 60 something woman from michoacan, Mexico, her name is Angela, and she makes traditional Mexican recipes in her home kitchen over a wood burning stove with a Kamal on top like a griddle on top and a mocha jete that she uses to grind things. So she makes things like enchiladas, she makes pandem muerto. She makes chilaquiles. She makes carnitas. She does all of this. Just standing in her kitchen. And it's an open kitchen, so there's like the jungle and you hear jungle noises, some days it's raining. It's really, really lovely. She speaks in Spanish. So if you don't speak Spanish, you have to turn on the subtitles to watch it. But it's really great lesson in very simple, very traditional cooking. She's also just a delight to watch. I found this because people were sharing it on Twitter when like somebody was trying to figure out the best way to make chilaquiles and everybody was sharing their favorite recipes. So I clicked on hers and watched her video. And not only do I now use her method, but I also have watched like ten of these so far and it's only been like a day and a half. So I'm sure I'm gonna watch the rest later. I will say that it's not exactly secret. She has millions and millions of followers in each of her videos has several million views. So I may be late to Demi Rancho to cosina, but it's taken my heart. Mike probably works out for you because that's your kitchen setup, isn't it? No. I have a somewhat I have a kitchen that's about. It's about modern with like 1987. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, my head that kind of kitchen, we probably would have lost him to Bon Appetit a long time ago. Yeah. Totally. Although I do yearn for a coma, I would love to have a wood burning stove that has a griddle and I can also use it as an oven and I can like bake wonderful things, but I'll make do with what I have right now. Anyway, Lauren will see your recommendation. Sounds super cool. My recommendation is a little bit in honor of you Mike. Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when we were talking about the metaverse? And I said at the top of the show, what's your favorite part of the metaverse? And you said, you said my favorite part is when they get to log off and get outside. Still, my favorite part. Still is the best part of the metaverse. Well, I happen to be listening to the cut podcast this week, which is done by New York magazine, part of vox media. And there's an episode titled maybe you should go outside. And it's in conversation with the cuts Jasmine aguilera, who also used to produce our Vogue podcast here. And her guest is Stephanie foo. Stephen talks about how she was feeling really burned out. And she was looking for access to nature, but she lives in New York City and the closest thing was prospect park. And how she just got really deep in the world of plants started to spot native plants and invasive species and started to figure out what weeds were, decided she was going to start weeding. And then she went through this official stewardship program, where she became a super steward for the park. And she and Jasmine make a joke about how super steward is kind of a lame name and they should call it plant parenthood instead, which made me laugh. And you know they both talk about how when they were living in California and make it something you and I are very fortunate enough to have access to there's a lot of great access to nature where we are here. It's not too hard to get to the forest or the beach or just find yourself outside and reconnect in some way and remind yourself what it's like to be away from so many screens all the time. But it can be harder to do when you're in a densely populated urban environment. And so they just have a really thoughtful conversation about the little things you can do to try to reconnect with nature and get outside when you're feeling overwhelmed by tech and life and other things. And so I recommend taking a listen, it's called maybe you should go outside. Nice. All right, that's our show for the week, Steven, thank you for joining us from your metaverse. Your metaverse with the beautiful foliage in the background. I really love it. Foliage. Did I say foliage? You said foliage. Footage again. We have to leave that in. All right. In the metaverse, the foliage is, when I say foilage again, foliage. All right, give up. What's the school in Vermont? This is like the one thing that I learned. Thanks to all of you for listening and especially to this part. And thanks to the organizers of AWE, where I recorded the conversation with Bobby Murphy and brielle Garcia, you can also watch the session on AWE's YouTube channel. And then all the other AWE 2021 sessions can be found at AWE dot live. And if you have feedback for us, you can find all of us on Twitter, just check the show notes, and this show is produced by the always excellent unflappable boon ashworth. Goodbye for now. And we'll.

"Smith. She'll be performing at a massive we love New York City homecoming concert with Bruce Springsteen and many others on August 21st in Central Park. This is democracy now. I am a good man as we go to Mexico where prominent news anchor as a United States took to the airwaves to stand up to one of the country's most powerful drug cartels. Earlier this week the jalisco new generation cartel posted a video online in which they directly threatened a rusty and anchor for the outlet millennial TV and a radio broadcast for audio formula who regularly reports on cartel violence and organized crime in Mexico. In the video a man told a rusty quote I assure you that wherever you are I will find you when I will make you eat your words even if they accuse me of femicide. The blurry video which was posted on Twitter by an anonymous user shows mass men carrying automatic rifles and other firearms resty address the threats during her broadcast Monday night. I have joined the federal system of protection from the government. I repeat our work will continue to be based on the truth and with the intention of providing information on the reality of a country like ours. And also as has happened on other occasions I express my solidarity and support to hundreds of colleagues who are still threatened or who have had to leave their areas but who keep on showing the value of information and their love for this profession. Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador vowed to protect resty. I completely reject these threats. We don't accept the sort of behavior. We're going to protect as usina and we're going to protect all Mexicans. It is our responsibility. According to the committee to protect journalists Mexico is the most dangerous country for journalists in the western hemisphere. Some 120 journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000 with at least four murdered this year alone. Well for more we go to Mexico City where we're joined by Jan Albert hutson Dutch journalist in Mexico correspondent at the committee to protect journalists. Jan thanks. Thanks so much for joining us. Why don't you start off by talking about this situation of arresting? Remarkably brave after this death threat comes in for her to go on the air and challenge the cartel not only in her name but in the name of all Mexican journalists trying to do their work on the ground. Absolutely. We believe the threat actually originated in an interview that she did on audio formula with a member of a citizen militia in the state of michoacan where the hell is going back in the national cartel is currently embroiled in sort of gangland warfare over territory in a traditionally very violent area in Mexico. And I think it's been a very clear message from the cartel that they want to manipulate and influence public opinion. I mean it's sort of a low intensity civil conflict it's war for them. It's a war against other criminal groups. And against the state in Mexico and with that comes the kind of information warfare. So they were very clearly not not happy with the way certain news outlets certain national news outlets were extensively covering the conflict as I was saying that I had been doing for over the past few months. And they're trying to manipulate that. They're trying to change it. They're trying to strike terror in the hearts of Mexican reporters. And that's the sort of the goal of the video. They obviously knew that it was going to go viral. They obviously knew that Mexican outlets were going to reproduce the video and make the message spread across the country like wildfire and that's what happened ultimately. So. She has said in her statement on the air that she's under federal protection. What does that mean? And what about the significance of amlo of the Mexican president speaking out? So when she says she is under federal protection it essentially means that she has been incorporated into an agency of the federal government called the federal mechanism for the protection of human rights defenders and journalists. And it's an agency that coordinates us protective measures organized by the federal government anywhere in the country. And if my range from getting a panic button or getting a bulletproof vest camera installation at her at her home et cetera. So there's a whole catalog of protective measures that the government is able to provide. Some of them are a little bit more effective. Some of them are a little bit less. And it means that she will probably has some she'll have to limit her movements a little bit so we have to check in with the federal authorities. Every once in a while and it also means that the federal government will need to see what they can do further to investigate this threat because ultimately. The threat stems from jalisco or from michoacan these are states in the center of Mexico. They'll have to investigate and see what they can do about that because obviously protective measures can only go so far. So can you tell us what a sana rusty was actually investigating? As this threat came in. And then put it in the context overall. In June 1 of the murderers of Mexican journalists Javier Valdez was sentenced to 32 years in prison he was murdered in 2017. His colleague Mary slava breach was assassinated just two months before him. I want to play a clip of vault as speaking at the international press freedom award from the your organization the committee to protect journalists in 2011 New York. And then you can tell us each of their stories . These pistols we do not use in order to internalize these past 21 years and never before have I suffered or enjoyed at this intensely nor with so many dangers. Mexico. In the state of Sinaloa Mexico it is dangerous to be alive and to do journalism is to tread an invisible line drawn by the bad guys. Trafficking and in the government in a field strewn with explosives. This is a war yes. But we have the citizens are providing them. You spend the Mexican and U.S. government. And then the evidence invisible and this is one this year..

Actually i know who the fighter is. Not by. So i'll go ahead. I'm sorry sinus. So who is some of the guys that you look up to now right now. I mean i have a lot of fighters. I like tony the olympian. He's i think he's a he's a really big becoming that people have been sleeping on Obviously like aj. Wilder all geyser. There you know big staples in the in the heavyweight division acknowledged. Those were people. You've gotta look to admire accurate historian because everybody has a struggling. You gotta find that motivation to get through it you know and get into some better for like those guys have. That story stupendous guide. I don't want to jump over. You guys know good now.

Now when you're going into the ring with the with these guys bro. I feel like it's it's shirt different.

You gotta make sure you make your statement those three rounds so i guess when you jump to to the professionals it's like okay. Now i'm fighting twelve rounds in. Let's say hopefully god willing year and a half year. We we inlets twelve rounds though. That's that's why you gotta since now learn to last the distance and pay that when you get to twelve around a something you haven't seen or not something that you're not used to When you talk about pacing yourself do you think the you will change from fighting. Every month is going to slow down. You say you're next year and a half you'll be fighting twelve rounders. Are you seeing yourself fighting for the next year and a half every single month. Well i know as i go. The fires are going to get tougher and competition be at a higher level so i noticed start slowing down.
