"And and maybe it's something that you people haven't thought about. But it's something worth talking to your coworkers about. Even if it's not a union, The idea of increasing collective organization amongst coworkers is just so vital. It's really you know, as workers we give Up rights. Actually, when we walk through the tour of the employer, right, we lose our freedom of speech with these our freedom of association and so just challenging that creating more communication with with an amongst co workers is the first step. And then I would say or if you have a union and you're not involved, think about ways to get involved, even you know, and I'm not like I'm not gonna say every union is a good union. It's not like there are problems. There's bureaucratic unions. There's undemocratic unions. But you know, it's like I think of it like Congress, which is like Yeah, there's corrupt people in Congress. But are we ready to throw it out altogether? Or do you first want to try and reform it And I think No getting involved in your union. Finding out what's going on is a second way. And then the third way is, you know, just to really follow workers leads. Sometimes people put a lot of emphasis on their own, for example, shopping habits and to say I'm only going to shop from good employers and and And that's not a bad thing. But research shows that you know, it's very hard to make a difference as an individual shopper or individual consumer. I'm so looking to join collection collectivity of consumers and workers working together so Like groups like the Restaurant Opportunities Center in New York City, works with restaurant workers and consumers to collectively say these are, you know restaurants we want to patronize or finding if there's worker cops in your city unionize workplaces, But I would say focus not so much on an individual acts but finding ways to be part of a collective project. On DH That's really just fostering this notion. That collective organization is the one thing that we have the one power that we have, and we want to foster that in every kind of place that we can, whether it's the workplace or than the neighborhood. Okay. If you are just joining us, you are listening to the Monday October 26th 2020 addition of a public affair. This's Patty Pel tacos, and I'm your host this hour on today's show, Stephanie Loose of City University in New York is talking with us about work and workers in the age of coded and we are getting close to the end of the hour. So if you have a question or comment for Stephanie Please give us a call now at 6 to 8 to 562001 Extension nine. You can also reach us by emailing us at talk at w o r t f m dot org At facebook dot com slash w o r t talk OR by tweeting US AT W R T talk So Stephanie something that I've thought about for years, and this might sound a little off the wall. But it's that there have been so many studies of Of automobile factories and The workplace is in the on mobile industry. I'm wondering as as a researcher as somebody who studies labour. Do you see a shift from people constantly studying what has happened in the automobile industry and always kind of using that as A template for what might happen in the future. Is that shifting as the nature ofthe our work and workplaces are shifting. Yeah, Wolf. I think there's at least two questions. And there are you know two directions, And that is one is like the thought that if we unionized in an industry like auto that we might see the jobs being move overseas, or that that the industry can't compete on. I think that's certainly something To talk about and worry about, But I think a couple of things that are one is that going back to our earlier discussion of health care, which is, you know, U. S. Automakers have always had Teo. Not only pay their workers and pay the cost of production, but pay house care for their workers and pay health care for their retirees. That's an enormous expense that adds a lot. Tio. We know healthcare is super expensive. And so if a U. S automaker has to compete with a Japanese or German automaker, where health care is provided by the state, this is something that You know, is unfair, Tio unfair competition. So that's another recent. My universal health care and universal benefits would benefit. You know employers in that way, So when people say you know, U. S automakers can't compete, I would say Well, first of all, Yes, let's fix the healthcare situation. And then the second is just that. We in terms of the union membership today, the kind of motile that the most common union member is actually ah, woman with a college degree who works in education or healthcare, and increasingly, we're seeing black and not next on Asian Union members. We're seeing the majority of union members today, our public sector, So it's a really difference, you know, demographic than that image of thie, the auto worker from from yesteryear. I'm I think we We want to be talking about all of these union members, and we want to be talking about them as a collective, But it really is a different union movement. Then it was 40 50 years ago. Right, And we do have a collar with a comment. Hi, Steve. Please go ahead with your comment. I just wanted to think you and your guest for bringing this topic up on discussing it. It's it's long overdue, actually. And I appreciate your focus on it. Um I just wanted to point out to all of your listeners that ah in the October 26th issue of the New Yorker magazine, there is a review of Scalia's Department of Labor and their total abdication. Of Ah, even addressing their mission, and it's it's it's harrowing actually to consider that in a global pandemic back that The department of what OSHA aren't standing on the on the dais with Anthony Fauci pounding the table on the pounding your fist on the table, saying, Hey, look at this. Um, I think frankly, that, uh, that you and your guests have been far too even handed about this outraged, just absolutely blind rage about the abdication of our government. In respect to, you know, basically no worker safety and concerned for their citizens. But that's just my opinion. I could be wrong. Double studio hires for that call and go ahead. Don't go ahead, Stephanie..

"Appears to have successfully tested a new spacecraft. Last week's mission was shrouded in secrecy. But as NPR's Jeff from field reports, there are some clues about what China sent into space and why. Last Friday, a Chinese rocket took off carrying a mysterious payload. A terse statement on state media said it was quote A reusable experimental spacecraft, but they didn't give a launch time. They don't have any more details. No riel official footage of the Lord's Jonathan Mcd, Alison astronomer, Earthy Center for Astrophysics, Harvard and Smithsonian who specializes in tracking satellites and spacecraft orbiting the Earth. When he plotted the course of China's new craft, he found that it passed over a secretive military facility. An area called Loop Nure, where China once tested its nuclear weapons. There's an air base there, which has AH big runway that's aligned exactly in the direction ofthe the orbit of the space craft. On Sunday, China announced its new spacecraft heads landed. Sure enough fuzzy satellite images napped by a commercial company called Planet. Seemed to show activity on the giant runway right at the moment, the landing would have occurred. McDowell says that the evidence is circumstantial, but he believes China has just tested a space plane. Think of it. It's a little space shuttle a craft with wings probably too small to carry people that took off on a rocket and coasted back to Earth. The information of all hands together now that this wass A test of something probably a space plane that made a winged reentry on landed on the runway at Lop nor the US Air Force has a similar spacecraft called the X 37 B. It's been launched in since 2010. So if that's what China tested, why now it's a great question. We're not even really sure why the United States military is pursuing a space plane like it's been doing for the last Decade or so. Brian Weeden Studies face security issues with the Secure World Foundation. The U. S X 37 B program remains highly classified. Weeden says he believes it's being used to test new sensors and systems for the military. Think about if you're building a brand new satellite, and you've got a lot of fancy new technology that's never been in space before. That's potentially risky. But if you can apply some of that technology in space, let's say in the payload bay of a reusable space plane that could allow you to get a better feel for how about react. McDowell says that space planes which travel many times, the speed of sound, could also potentially helped with the development of so called hyper sonic weapons. Uh, honestly, he thinks China could just be copying the US if the Americans have one of those. That must be a good reason for it. So we better get one, too. The landing of the space plane or whatever it was, is just the latest success for China. McDowell says that recently completed its own satellite navigation system, it has a robotic missions going to Mars and several probes on the moon. China's firing on all thrusters in space on just really increasing its level of involvement on capabilities, and I think that this is just one more reflection of that Jeff from feel.

The fear of loss on DH and people across the globe are being impacted I their efforts to manage their lives through this pendant. Fear of contracting the virus. The fear associate it with delaying here for other conditions, social isolation, the economic insecurity. All of this translates into increase trauma across the globe. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The whole conducted recently you're half of Americans report. The Corona virus is harming the mental health. I will tell you this. You know. Recently, the Memorial Day weekend issue was, what should I do? Where do I go? And I felt as I'm sure many of us felt so the limitations that are created By the pandemic. This statistic alone from the Kaiser Family Foundation is troubling and a clear sign that we should be concerned about the potential long term affects. Of the pandemic. Kaiser Permanente, as many of you know, was one of the first health care organizations to recognize the link between trauma and early childhood and health throughout a person's life. As a result of through a landmark study that we conducted with the CDC in 1988. The study found that negative experiences in childhood have direct relationships to the poor health later in life. The implications being obesity, diabetes, depression and so much more today, we know that nearly 40 million people, one out of four people have filed for unemployment. Our country has shed in a matter of weeks, decadesworth of jobs and days, highlighting the unprecedented told this virus has taken on our economy. And we know that research shows that job loss. Associated with depression, anxiety, distress and low self esteem. It was a study done of the great dissenter Great recession in 2007 found that for every percentage point increase in unemployment rate. There was a 1.6% increase in suicide rate, so this isn't important. Topic for us to engage in to discuss for a number of reasons the impact on unemployment but also that the challenging impact of trauma that our Children are experiencing. They are adults are experiencing and that many of our seniors are experiencing. So I want to initiate a dialogue and thank the experts that we have here. Acknowledging again that this is important, Poppet. It's one that I think we need to continue to engage in and it's one that we need to continue to study. So thank you for being with us today, Gloria, I'm turning it back to you and I look forward to the discussion and the dialogue among our panellists. Thank you. Thank you so much, Greg. And again.

Thank you so much. It is such an honor to be here and I am so glad I'd like to start with you to really lay some groundwork for this discussion mean what is societal trauma? And do you think that that is what we are experiencing collectively to varying degrees right now? As a result of this pendant? Well, I think as we are, you know, in the middle of a pandemic that many, many, many people are experiencing this as a hardship and experiencing it must wait is lost employment concerned for their their loved ones fear for their health. You know, all of these things that are really challenging. One piece that I do want to highlight is that I don't want to take it for granted. What anyone's response to the pandemic is there certainly individuals who are enjoying more time at home with their families. They're certainly folks who are maybe recognising that they were oversubscribed before and taking war time Tio enjoy reading, so I don't want Teo, Brazil what anyone's reaction will be, and I don't want anyone to feel guilty. Right or feel like there's something wrong with them if they're not having a terrible time, But that being said, what we recognise is that this pandemic presents a significant hardship for many, many, many people, and for a lot of us, it does rise to the level of trauma, and so when we look across the societal level There will be a significantly increased number of votes who are experiencing trauma on and on and also a much broader level of folks who are experiencing stress and adversity, even if it doesn't rise to the level of being frankly, traumatic. And how does that experience present itself? If you are somebody who is going through what you describe as a particularly stressful or potentially traumatic time, like, what does it do to our minds? Our bodies? Well, it can manifest in many different ways. Some of the things that we know is that when we feel stressed, right, a part of the way that happens in our bodies is that our bodies actually release More stress hormones, and those include things like adrenaline and cortisol, and they can have lots of effects on our brains and bodies. They can affect our sleep. They can affect our mood. They can affect our ability to focus and pay attention. And they can also affect things like our blood pressure our blood sugar, for example, so they can increase the risk for things like, you know, heart attacks or strokes or having And experience or of depression or anxiety, and what we do know is that individuals who have experienced significant adversity in the path and especially dream, a sensitive period of childhood are more vulnerable to having a negative outcome was set with subsequent stressors. And so what we see now is folks who have been struggling, especially folks. Who have been, you know, living on the margins or or, you know, on the border of poverty or dealing with other hardships. When you add on top of that, the additional adversity and hardship of this pandemic, it can be enough to trigger Mood challenges mental healthy compensation. Increased risk of, for example, relapse into substance use and then also increased risk of things like poorly controlled diabetes or high blood pressure. It sounds like you're saying to some extent that it could potentially on Children that potential stressors like this. Potentially traumatic experiences that they could have more lasting impacts on kids, minds and bodies in the long term..

America rising hears that she continued to applause it should be twenty dollars an hour eighteen to twenty dollars an hour at this point no no no well I know it should be twenty dollars twenty nine dollars because twenty ends in zero and people are worth more than three I'm sorry I'm just trying to give the liberal something to chew on so far the Bernie Sanders campaign has been silent okay fine twenty what about your employees okay twenty five like the archer you're twenty nine bird is the only one in the audience is the only better okay only five twenty nine why not make it fifty okay seriously you know she says twenty why hasn't look you've got and Yang saying twenty four thousand every American yeah should be every American household twenty four thousand every American household if you're going to promote that that doesn't have a chance in hell of me of of making it why not propose fifty dollars an hour if we're going to just go in a fantasy land a hundred dollars an hour one million dollars why not a hundred dollars an hour for every don't be ridiculous one nine why why not wealthy all that would be too hard on the employers we know that fifteen dollars an hour the Congressional Budget Office has already said will the it will put a million and a half to three point seven million people out of work completely Democrats don't care about that now when you step out no that's not going to happen with that if it's not gonna happen for fifteen make it thirty make it forty make it fifty we don't care or reef refused to acknowledge the people that will lose their jobs and how will will overall heard an economy if you refuse to acknowledge that then why do you have a problem with fifty dollars an hour right what's the problem what's the what's the problem I go fifty I'm telling you I would know how to run as a Democrat I really would yeah all right yeah I could I could do that I could run as a Democrat I could be the first I would be such a successful Democrat I would be the first man in the squad well I think we've got a problem we can't have that no man in film and a lot of the squad okay well you're in you're you're you're a white male I had if not if I don't wish to identify is one okay then because you have Mrs Doubtfire costume in your and the hotel in the body I keep that in the closet but not anymore not anymore no I mean the actual Mrs Doubtfire yeah I'm sure what a Megan even the yeah I'm sure that that was what I meant yeah I'm sure that's what were you thinking I think we all know what I was thinking meanwhile the leader of the squad okay see leader of the squad she blamed the department of homeland security and former President Bush we're back to blaming bush if you were listening last week you're saying wait a minute you guys brought up what was the last person to blame bush service so as we brought it up couple days later there's a caster Cortez blaming bush for the immigration crisis I appreciate the Democrats for bringing me back into the news cycle she was a she was had a a town hall event and when people say all you want to talk about dismantling DHS or policy nice and all those things these are such radical agendas first of all I think that re organizing and getting rid of DHS is not as radical as George bush's creation and implementation of DHS in the first place and then she goes on to you know explain why in really doesn't make any sense but I wanna get to the point that's important she said I think migration to me is liberation it's the ability to move and to be it's the freedom to be really is what we're talking about and I think all people should be free to be here and in our communities end of quote open borders right do away with DHS do away with the border patrol ice was just three months ago four months ago we were getting Democrats bonus stop with the open borders they're not they're not moving towards open borders yeah and she's not the face yeah yeah we got that a lot to do so there you go yeah but it's it's it's no surprise here's my question though how far to go with the convention next summer about a year out so much can change in twelve months so much can change in twelve Manuel look the the former head of Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood is now an oppressor right yeah Martina don't never to load was an oppressor right who would ever done that and again if you have a question about AOC being the new leadership of the party ask yourself if Nancy Pelosi will get any speaking time if anybody's looking for her endorsement in the party in terms of those running for president no will she be up there on stage with a great amount of impact full speaking time prime time no we suspect AOC will what if she's not what if a seals snob issues from Yahoo news a new report from an influential liberally think tank provided to the daily beast liberal publication says that the democratic party's decision to see the role of the law ground to what publicans creates quads the false dichotomy of America as either a nation of immigrants or nation of laws end of quote making the party and its candidates appear soft on enforcement and potentially weakening future attempts for humanitarian focused immigration reform in doing so rights Tom jar which the vice president of the immigration policy of the center for American progress supporters of humane immigration policy quote have seeded powerful rhetorical ground to immigration restriction as or happy to masquerade as the soul defenders of America as a nation of laws are member this comes from a liberal think tank right so they gonna be criticized the good they're gonna make it seem like that if you're for immigration laws that you're still crew your your cruel and you're in humane but you're winning the argument right but what they're saying is they're losing the messaging war to trump even though it's an evil message they're still you know the front messages evil they're still losing well they're losing it because it's not evil well it's very basic and it's not crazy no right as you said before it's it's of book well if you want to quote from Bonnie we go back to the whole Jim Acosta thing but he missed the substance of that argument because they were all they were concerned about was the back and forth and the the angst of a cost they missed the entire messages trump has said since that point no we don't wish to rid of immigration used the wrong terms illegal immigration legal immigration we want we wish to control our borders the Democrats have to they can't win the argument so they have to portray that anybody who believes in legal immigration but not illegal immigration is as close to Hitler's you can get that's what they had that's what they believe they have to do to win it and they're still losing it by doing it because they can't win that argument on the substance of it it's alright right the cat van and it's it's over and over again again the which which makes it easier for the reelection campaign pointing out what the left believes in pointing out what this president believes open borders he just like to put up a wall we should give them free medical care in New York he just wants to put up a wall if you don't call a man living as a woman a woman you should go to jail have you heard about him and how we'd like to put up all all and tighten border security yeah the lowering taxes getting rid of horrible regulation well you really think about it you know we talk about the whole budget thing since the budget thing doesn't matter either right party politically that gives the advantage to the Republicans since the debt is gone it doesn't hurt you with your own party anymore if it doesn't impact you there then write you because and this is what we said I mean forget the promise of correct yet on the other side that's not gonna happen because of the political backslash isn't gonna happen now I mean we go back to last December well we're gonna go ahead and go through with the deal Sarah Huckabee Sanders we're gonna go ahead and go through with the deal we we're we're not gonna shut down government because we think we can get the money somewhere else for the wall and then boom quick turn around next thing you know the president is spending the holidays at the White House well we haven't even talked about this the Ann Coulter faction will say you're gonna spend all this money and you got no wall money either right it's gonna be the next thing sure that may that may be stronger than fiscal conservative soon no you're right where's the money for the wall right just busted every budget cap possible and you got zero for the Wall here's the thing what did you get yeah and and as you said military how long can you go there you said last time remember to I got the military spent right what should be the other way around there the Democrats not to spend on military especially those Democrats that are up for reelection in those states that support the military in a strong what part of the part of the thing is the fact that you have till September thirtieth and there are there right that that that's a really is getting fiscal conservatives mad the fact that you crumbled so worldly you didn't even say let's take it to the point of seeing if we can get more budget cut or more restraints from the Democrats by taking it right up to the limit of September thirtieth now let's concede two months early right yeah I which I believe I believe that I believe in members a cut good conservatives that are left in Congress that's it really is taking off some of them but there was no fight in the administration to really get anything of substance now they did say well well we got we we got some of it.

fifteen make it thirty making forty make it fifty if we don't care or reef refused to acknowledge the people that will lose their jobs and how will will overall heard an economy if you refuse to

really would yeah all right yeah I could I could do that I could run as a Democrat I could be the first I would be such a successful Democrat I would be the first man in the squad well I think we've got a problem we can't have that no man and bill meant a lot of the squad okay well you're in you're you're you're a white male five it would not if I don't wish to identify is one okay then yes yeah Mrs Doubtfire costume in your and don't tell anybody I keep that in the closet but not any more not anymore no I mean the actual Mrs Doubtfire yeah I'm sure what they make I keep in there yeah I'm sure that that was what I meant yeah I'm sure that's what were you thinking I think we all know what I was thinking meanwhile the leader of the squad okay see leader of the squad she blamed the department of homeland security and former President Bush we're back to blaming bush if your listing last week you're saying wait a minute you guys brought up what was the last person to blame bush service so as we brought it up couple days later there's a caster Cortez blaming bush for the immigration crisis I appreciate the Democrats for bringing me back into the news cycle she was a she was had a a town hall event and when people say all you want to talk about dismantling DHS for abolishing nice and all those things these are such radical agendas first of all I think that re organizing and getting rid of DHS is not as radical as George bush's creation and implementation of DHS in the first place and then she goes on to explain explain why in really doesn't make any sense but I want to get to the point that's important she said I think migration to me is liberation it's the ability to move and to be it's the freedom to be really is what we're talking about and I think all people should be free to be here and in our communities end of quote open borders right do away with DHS do away with the border patrol ice was just three months ago four months ago we were getting Democrats phone is stop with the open borders they're not they're not moving towards open borders yeah and she's not the face yeah yeah we got that a lot to them yeah so there you go yeah but it's no surprise here's my question though how far to go with the convention next summer better you're out so much can change in twelve months so much can change in twelve Manuel look the the former head of Planned Parenthood Planned Parenthood is now an oppressor right yeah Martina don't never to love as an oppressor right who would ever done that and again if you have a question about AOC being the new leadership of the party ask yourself if if Nancy Pelosi will get any speaking time if anybody's looking for her endorsement in the party in terms of those running for president no well she'd be up there on stage with a great amount of impactful speaking time prime time no we suspect AOC will what if she's not what if a see a snob is he is from Yahoo news and a new report from an influential liberally think tank provided to the daily beast liberal publication says that the democratic party's decision to see the rule of law ground tour what publicans creates quote the false dichotomy of America as either a nation of immigrants or nation of laws end of quote making the party and its candidates appear soft on enforcement and potentially weakening future attempts for humanitarian focused immigration reform in doing so rights Tom jar which the vice president of the immigration policy of the center for American progress supporters of humor humane immigration policy quotev seeded powerful rhetorical ground to immigration restriction is or happy to masquerade as the soul defenders of America as a nation of laws I remember this comes from a liberal think tank right so they're gonna be criticized the good they're gonna make it seem like that if you're for immigration laws that you're still crew your your cruel and you're in humane but you're winning the argument right but what they're saying is they're losing the messaging war to trump even though it's an evil message they're still you know the trumps messages evil they're still losing well they're losing it because it's not evil well it's very basic yes and it's not crazy no but as you said before it's it's of book well if you want to quote from Bonnie we go back to the whole Jim Acosta thing but he missed the substance of that argument because they were all they were concerned about was the back and forth and the the the angst of a cost they missed the entire messages trump has said since that point no we don't wish to rid of immigration used the wrong terms illegal immigration legal immigration we want we wish to control our borders the Democrats have to they can't win the argument so they have to portray that anybody who believes in legal immigration but not illegal immigration is as close to Hitler's you can get that's what they had that's what they believe they have to do to win it and they're still losing it by doing it because they can't win that argument on the substance of it it's alright right the count band and it's it's over and over again again which which makes it easier for the reelection campaign pointing out what the left believes in pointing out what this president believes open borders he just like to put up a wall we should give them free medical care in New York he just wants to put up a wall if you don't call a man living as a woman a woman you should go to jail have you heard about him and how we'd like to put up all wall and tighten border security yeah the lowering taxes getting rid of formal regulation well you really think about it you know we talk about the whole bunch of things since the budget thing doesn't matter either right party politically that gives the advantage to the Republicans since the debt is gone it doesn't hurt you with your own party anymore if it doesn't impact you there than right here because in this is what we said I mean forget the promise of correct yet on the other side that's not gonna happen because of the political backslash isn't gonna happen now I mean we go back to last December well we're gonna go ahead and go through with the deal Sarah Huckabee Sanders we're gonna go ahead and go through with the deal we we we're not gonna shut down government because we think we can get the money somewhere else for the wall and then boom quick turn around next thing you know the president is spending the holidays at the White House well we haven't even talked about this the Ann Coulter faction will say you're gonna spend all this money and you got no wall money either right right it's gonna be the next thing sure that may that may be stronger than fiscal conservative soon no you're right where's the money for the wall right you've just busted every budget cap possible and you got zero for the Wall here's the thing what did you get yeah and and is he said military how long can you go that he you said last time remember to I got the military spent right what should be the other way around there the Democrats not to spend on military especially those Democrats that are up for reelection in those states that support the military in a strong what part of the part of the thing is the fact that you have till September thirtieth and there aren't there right that that that's what really is getting fiscal conservatives mad the fact that you crumbled so worldly you didn't even say let's take it to the point of seeing if we can get more budget cut or more restraints from the Democrats by taking it right up to the limit of September thirtieth now let's concede two months early right yeah which I believe I believe that I believe in members a cut good conservatives that are left in Congress that's it really is taking off some of them but there was no fight in the administration to really get anything of substance now they did say well what we got we we got some of it paid for you know we're reducing the budget by seventy five billion gonna spend three hundred twenty but we're gonna offset it with seventy five billion in cuts that might not happen for the next ten years right now sorry we've been there done that before yeah so but but politically if you take that off the table and the dental longer matter of spending no longer matters to Republicans isn't that an advantage in an election forget about the morality of it I'm just saying the politics of an election isn't that an advantage if you take that off Hey the Republicans are willing to spend whatever they agreed with the Democrats you take spending off the table what are the Democrats have right eight six six ninety right I your plan for summer what are.

"Chris Stig all dot com. C HRIS STI l l it's all one word also on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, I even got on that thing that the president was talking about parlor has Larry mentioned parlor yet. I didn't know anything about it literally this week. Somebody said, Chris, you gotta be an early adopter parlor, I'm not hawking at her pitching it or encouraging to do it, but I was curious about it. So I ran over there and signed up. So I'm there to just for the hell of it not, because I know what it is or understand what to do. It looks a lot like Twitter. It's like, you know, Twitter's all blue if you're on Twitter, people aren't incidentally, I learned somebody sat down actually showed me the data on Twitter use for as much as it's in the news anymore. Because the president does it all the time. He's actually a very scant few of us that really do it. And now that I do it, I'm addicted to it, but there are a lot of people on Twitter that I think are interesting, you know, journalists and others that I like, and I follow and I like to hear their thoughts in real time. And so that's why I do it. It's also a cesspool is ever guys like Russia. I mean, there's a whole lot of not good that comes out of Twitter. But, you know, you've heard since then the debate about Twitter inject Dorsey and people shadow banning on Twitter and Facebook and throwing people off well along came this thing that I guess the White House was semi advocating out there called parlour. It's all in rid. So Twitter's on blue parlor, things all in red and show, people are parlor is kind of like the island of misfit toys. It's where Twitter everybody. That Twitter said you don't belong here. You're not welcome here. They all ran to this thing called parlor, I guess, so I'm there is the point if you wanna try it with me. I've new so be gentle. Okay. Triple eight six thirty wwl AO. See I wanna talk to you people that work in the service industry. People who wait tables, people who tend bar, people who maybe this weekend you work in, and I'm not just talking about any place. I'm talking about people who genuinely and not just a temporary job or something to get you through school. Not that there's anything wrong with it. Don't misunderstand. What I'm driving at people who make their living. If you're listening to me right now, perhaps you're on your way to work, and you make your living tending bar, or you make your living waiting tables. And, you know, in our nation's capital, there are places, particularly some of our higher in restaurants, where if you wait tables in some of the premier places out there, you ten bar, and some of the premium premier places out there you make some pretty good Bank. So know there's a really great living to be made in the service industry. And by the way. For people that are trying to make a little side action or pay their way through school or whatever it's a great side job. Heo se- seems to want to screw that up for you, though. As far as I'm concerned, and I want to hear specifically from you. If that is you triple eight, six thirty WMA L Alexandria out of a accustomed Cortez is set to Barton again for one day. She's going to do it to advocate for the raise in the minimum wage. The freshman congresswoman will return to her district in New York tonight, where she is supposed to pour a few pints and push for the federal raise the way jacked showing support for abolishing below minimum wage for tipped workers in New York. The exact location of the event organized by restaurant opportunities centered United New York based nonprofit that advocates for increased pay through its one fair wage campaign will be announced later. So tonight AO see is apparently going to go tend bar. And she's trying to draw attention to the idea that, you know, I used to do this, and I didn't make great money doing it, which is why we have the federal government must push for a federal raise the way, Jack never, again can bartenders like I used to be never again can waiters. And waitresses never, again can they be paid below the minimum wage? Now, maybe you are cheering this, if you're in the service industry, but I'm giving you first crack at this let Washington DC. No right now. Let everyone listening WM AL dot com right now. Let this audience know if you and you're gonna have to give me where you work. You don't have to give me your real name if you don't want. But I wanna know from you, because this impacts, you, it's fine for a guy like me, who's on the radio to talk about what I think it means for somebody who tends bar or waits tables. But I think it's important and instructive for all of us who don't do that for a living to hear from you who does do that for a living. What does it mean to you? If I told you the federal government is going to make it the law of the land that your employer must pay you a base minimum wage. At least if in fact, right now, you're making less than that kinda depends on where you are. I suspect certain laws these, I don't know the, the wage laws in every municipality in the listening area of AL. So it may already be in certain instances, it's differing. But if you are paid below the federal minimum wage right now and you are in the service industry. Triple eight six thirty w L is my phone number. And I want you to tell me what does that mean to you? What would that mean for your bottom line? Does it mean more money in your pocket? Do you cheer and say right on? That's what I'm talking about the federal government, making those cheap SOB's. I worked for it said restaurant or said bar, making them, pay me at least the minimum wage. Because Yahoo, then I'll get tips on top of that. Right. And Yahoo that's forced more money into my pocket. Right. Give me a call. Is that right? Is that how that stacks up? Maybe it is..

"restaurant opportunities center" Discussed on Talk 1260 KTRC

"Fifty years or more also Fadi home from cowgirl and all one hundred Molina from cafe. Teddy wanted to make the point that there are people who support the Bill that say that HP thirty one will not end tippy. But what is your take on that NY? I think it's important to realize that putting that type of strain on our employers is going to I mean, they're going to have to move to things like counter service, and it will no longer be a full service restaurant, and that loses our jobs, and I'm not gonna get tipped if I'm not employed, and that's based on evidence in other states, correct? Absolutely, absolutely. I mean, there haven't been exclusive studies about this. But we're definitely seeing it. You know, my mom has been saying every time she goes to Santa Barbara to visit my brother, you know, all these restaurants are counter service that, you know, have a menu item for less than fifteen dollars. And she didn't understand the tip credit issue. She it was just labor problems over there. But you see it there for sure. And then now in Seattle Washington has changed it and it didn't happen right away. But as the minimum wage has gone up fifteen bucks in Seattle. It's going to fifteen bucks and restaurants are putting service charges on. They do they just are. I mean, they're they're switching to so to those the support this Bill, and and they're gonna say, well, you know, this is a social Justice issue. This is one weighed for all we're trying to raise people up, and you know, that's the purpose of all this Sadie speaking as someone whom this will impact, we don't want one unfair wage. Okay. Hundred you agree. Right. I'm agree. And your your server right now. Yes, I work here. And you would you would like to be paid. Well, tell me I mean, I don't wanna put words in your mouth. Well, you know, it is very when I heard about the HBO three one. I I was like oh, wow. It's going to be eleven dollar. Plus tip is gonna be great. But honestly, I don't I agree with that. Because it allowed happen is gonna affect to the economy of the NFL. And then because some people they have to lose their up to. Yeah. I mean, I'm sure you would like to be twenty five dollars plus tip right or fifty dollars plus tips, but that's not sustainable. Well, like, you know, if they say, okay, we we're not by this this HP three one is gonna be like eleven dollar, relax tapes. Plus, but usually, I work five hours or six hours. And then it happening is gonna be only two hour for that day. King three hours because they want they own. I'd be like, okay. You can were only two hours and you can make twenty four hours. It's gonna be yes, forty dollars. But there are people will say, well, that's just a fear tactic being raised by the by the owners of the restaurant. You guys are just trying to scare us and believe that you know, will our favorite restaurant for close. We're gonna lose businesses. They'll be shuttered. But you know, we we have a minimum wage and the annum in a Big Mac in Santa Fe's, the same as a Big Mac and Albuquerque, I think it's really important for everyone to hear this. We are not doing this on behalf of our employers. I know enough about the economic structure of my industry that I'm working in to fight for myself. Okay. I know that this this will happen this way, it it. Then there's proof and other states that have gone through this already. There's a reason why main in Washington DC were able to reverse it because it was such a detrimental thing. It's good point. He did pass. But then they had to come back and say, wait a second away second the impact is negative on on people's Dobbs and people's hours and on the industry as well. George yesterday, I can win off on this for a while a couple of different times. And I said it has taken a restaurant tours in Santa Fe, a long time to make Santa Fe one of the top color nary destinations on the planet, and to create something called culinary tourism before you monkey with the system and killed that or damage that the same way that our former governor did with the film industry. Take a bread be slow be sure to this. I mean, I think with the former governor of I think a better metaphor. It'd be what she did with the mental health services. Ms astor. So, you know, it's taken a long time for it to evolve and people come to Santa Fe, for example. And they go skiing, and when they come down from the hill, they want to be waited on by a nice server, and they don't want to go to a fancy meal every night. And that's where a buffet. And that's and that's what this is about. So it's like, yeah. It it really does. And it may not change anything immediately. But over time it will have a huge effect. My question is do we need to wait for it to have a negative impact? Before we redo it definitional leadership weighed the pros and the cons game. His whole thing out do some research in other markets and don't just you know, the organization that is really pushing this is out of these coast. Correct. Correct. Wait for there's there's an organization the east coast called the restaurant opportunity center. That's that they basically want to get rid of tipping, and they want to have one fair wage and the think it's unfair that the dishwashers get paid so much less than the bartenders do, but you know, the dishwashers generally are very low skilled people, they don't speak English and they develop and they grow. I would like to hear from Alex. You know, what was your first job here in Santa Fe, my first shop it was this washer, and then how long did you do that for two years? And then what happened? When did you do? Well, I learned English and then I start to. On the kitchen after that, I learned English, and I go serving so this this is a story that happens over and over again. And this is a very virtuous Justice thing, this is how it's supposed to work. You know, these folks that come immigrants they're coming from horrific situations, and they're dedicated to improving their lives, and that's what they're doing. And we want to keep that cycle going. I was just the opposite. I owned a restaurant, and then I was a bartender, and I worked my way down to dishwasher. True story, anyway, George so or eighty people can go finding more information about this. Learn more about this and go to hearing say you've been going to the hearings at the at the roundhouse did pass five to four Democrats voted five, unfortunately on Friday, and now goes to the full floor. What do we know? Actually Antonio my esus ruled that it needs another house committee before it goes to Senate ESTES. He's the house of representatives guy that was the chairman a lot. So he's going to go with the next committee. Then able I'm not sure what department. It's something to do with how they give the money away. Right. Look it up easy to find the state's website super simple easy website to use. This look for AB thirty one or or moma's represented Mogo M legis dot gov. Works like Lord just type it in and search for and it'll give you all the committees. What times room numbers and the members and everything? I would just like to say one more thing in your question about the fear. You know, that we're storming up a lot of fear. I'm scared. It's not about fear mongering. It's about fear. I'm really worried about this. My my mom started Toamasina's in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and we've never gone for the legislature about anything. There was a minimum wage living wage here in Santa Fe, we didn't lobby against it. We understood what it was. We might disagree with parts of it. We didn't do anything. There was a sugar tax. We didn't say anything. I thought it was kind of a dumb idea. But it didn't it wasn't a deal breaker for my business restaurant owners are scared about this. And if you feel like there's fearmongering it's because we're scared taken by Sadie. Thank you. Thank you. Best of luck and everything. Okay. Thank you. All right. We'll come back, and we'll talk about it with another restaurant owner and his crew isn't that is James Campbell.
