Frito-Lay Strike Could End as Workers Vote on a New Labor Agreement

"Workers who have been striking in Topeka, Kansas, for more than two weeks are voting today on a new labor agreement. Frank Morris of member station K. C U R reports the proposed contract eases some working conditions at the plant and would raise salaries, but those concessions may not be enough to compete in a tight labor market. Union strong Oh, one thing you learn, talking to the strikers outside the sprawling Frito Lay plant Topeka, the people who make Cheetos, Fritos and chips they can work similar long hours. I am a very hardworking woman. I work like him. Helen Teeter done up in a bright red shirt. Big white hat says she has very little time for family. I have no time to go work for them because I've been working seven days a week. Like 84 hours a week. 84 hours a week, Peter says the money's good up to double the normal $20 an hour wage with overtime. In a statement, Frieda Lee says only about 2% of its Topeka workers average more than 60 hours a week. But the company routinely forces workers to pick up extra hours and to skip scheduled days off even those with seniority like Marlon Smith. I've been here 22 years and I still get force for seven days a week. Maybe, like two or 3, 12 2 or 3 12 hour shifts. The contract Smith and others are voting on today would guarantee one day off a week. It would also end what workers call suicide shifts. 2 12 hour shifts with only eight hours in between. There's a proposed 4% raise over the next two years. But there may not be enough workers have more leverage now, and the signs of that are impossible to miss. They just put this up last week. We were out here We watched him put it up. Brad Wiese is pointing out a new billboard just across from the free delay plant Right where the picketers stand it, says the JM Smuckers company now hiring multiple position shift and pay rates, comprehensive benefit packages, So that's pretty much telling us. Hey, Come on out. We says at least half a dozen companies are actively recruiting disgruntled Frito Lay workers if they can't get the contract they want today for

Advocates Call For Changes In Prisons To Reduce Inmates' Exposure To Coronavirus

"State prisoners have been significantly affected by the coronavirus. At least 220,000 of them have tested positive for covert 19 tight conditions and buildings make social distancing and controlling spread difficult. That is the case in Kansas, which has one of the highest infection rates among state prisons and with access to the vaccine, unclear Advocates are calling for changes to reduce exposure. No mean do you, dean of the Kansas News Service reports. Mary Flowers hasn't seen her daughter, Jordan Fuller, since July. Fuller went to county jail and then in October, she was transferred to the Topeka Correctional Facility. The states on Lee Women's prison. Kansas Prisons haven't allowed visitors since March to prevent the spread of the Corona virus. But that hasn't worked. The virus made its way into the state's prisons in April, 11 inmates and three staff members have died. 5000 inmates in the system have tested positive. It's awful to have a child in there, no matter their age, you know, even when they're 30 throughout the pandemic prisoners and Kansas have said social distancing is basically impossible. Everyone has masks. But not every inmate wears thumb. Not everyone reports their symptoms if they're feeling sick. And people are scared for their health and frustrated by new safety restrictions. Flowers says her daughter has been living in a tent in the prison's laundry building for more than seven weeks until all 60 new arrivals to the prison test negative at the same time. She says her daughter has been tested nine times and has been through four quarantines. They put these women in an impossible situation. You know they're being held where they can't even make it inside the prison. John Wesley O'Hara is a corrections officer at the Topeka facility, he says units go in and out of lockdown when someone gets sick. People still move from building to building and the prison hasn't been disciplining people, so it's hard to enforce mask wearing They were understaffed before the pandemic, But even more officers are out now because they're quarantining taking care of kids are working outbreaks at other prisons. The people who are left sometimes work 16 hour shifts. Harris says he tries to be careful and keeps mostly to himself outside of work. But when his roommate who also works at the prison, tested positive they had to miss Thanksgiving with their families. I had to call my ex wife and tell her I can't see my kids for the next two weeks. This is isolating work. Just by its very nature. Now you had something like this where you actually have to have that physical separation as well and the stress becomes 10 times Greater. The Kansas Department of Corrections declined interview requests. But in a statement, spokesman Randy Bowman said the department is working with officials to follow public health guidelines. Criminal justice advocates have said. That's not enough for months. They've argued the best solution is to release people so they can isolate Lauren Bonds is the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas. She helped sue the state to release thousands of inmates this spring. The suit was dismissed. But the A C L U is working on individual clemency applications for prisoners who are vulnerable to the virus. The only way to make sure that the transmission rates go down is to make sure that people in prisons can observe the same, You know, protocols that we're being told to observe out here in the community Governor Laura Kelly's office says she's still considering the requests. As for a vaccine, health care workers in Kansas prisons and jails will be among the first to receive it. But there's no news on whether inmates or other staff will be

"Kansas, Kansas on TV station reported reason diversity training similar at the Topeka Goodyear plant. Included a slide outlining the company zero tolerance policy. The image posted on social media that we also yesterday apparently by an employee says the material originated from the Goodyear corporate headquarters in Akron, Ohio, enlisted as acceptable messages that were black lives matter. And LGBT pride. The unacceptable column consisted of blue lives matter, all lives matter. Meg attire and political slogans. The president then tweeted. That again. You should boycott A good year, which is an American company, and he said this yesterday. I guarantee you I pull very well with all of those great workers in Goodyear. And when they say that you can't have blue lives matter. You can't show a blue line. You can't wear a maga hat. But you can have other things that are Marxist in nature. There's something wrong with the top of Goodyear. Goodyear not specifically addressed the the discriminatory slide by the issued a statement. Saying that the the refrain from workplace expressions verbal otherwise and support of political campaigning for any Canada or party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues. So And other backtracking say they've always supported law enforcement. The president had called for that. But now the Goodyear and the only two American tire companies Goodyear, I think Cooper is the other one. So again, it is dividing a lot of people. NASCAR says they're going to keep their Goodyear tires on. There was a photo of a trump NASCAR race car. With Goodyear tires. And so And then there was a lot of other video that yesterday that showed some Goodyear tire shops removing the Goodyear sign from their shops based on their cards. So It's getting getting pretty sensitive mechanism, actually was asked about this grilled about this yesterday in her daily press briefing. And she said, Look, Goodyear needs to clarify where they stand. Good here needs to come out and clarify their policy. There is an image to say Sounds square. Yes, I did see their statements were still still fair failed to clarify their policy. What happened is there is an image that was put out. That showed that certain speech was acceptable. Black lives matter. Insignia, For instance, What was not allowed was blue eyes matter, but was not allowed was maggot. What was clearly targeted was a certain idea. All of you But the certain ideology is anybody on the conservative side. That's the way it seemed to read out to her. And she said, Look of for for her purposes for the president's purposes. He firmly believes that blue lives do matter. His president never apologize for standing with law enforcement he wants. He thinks it's unacceptable. If you could wear black lives matter, huh? Guess what you should be able to wear a blue lives matter, 12, particularly when our police officers are targeted. And they have been targeted on. We read stories virtually every day, Sean about some police officers somewhere getting targeted by one of the thugs from BLM. And killing mechanism yesterday, said Just look at the statements that are coming out from black lives matter from the organization. And apparently, those statements are okay at Goodyear cars. I'm concerned Blue lives matter is an equity issues have been police officers across this country have been targeted because they were the badge look no further than Dallas or five police officers die. So black lives matter, an organization whose in their D C branch said black lives matter means to fund the police. One of their presidents in New York, said We will burn down the system We all remember in 2015 yelling of pigs in a blanket fry them like bacon out of black lives matter rally that is allowed, but blue lives matter is not allowed. That's more of the same viewpoint. Discrimination this by an American company that makes makes tires. Obviously remember, the fan of boycotts just really loved before by cuts. You know if you're unhappy with a certain person or product or whatever, just by their competitors..

Trump says he'd be in favor of Goodyear boycott

"A factory worker at a tire factory in ticket, Kansas posted an unverified image to social media of a powerpoint presentation that appears to show that Tire Company's policy disallowing their employees from wearing Magyar at work I mean pick your poison right guys which fire you're GONNA put out I. Tough call where to start here unless of course. How do you put out the fire? So you mean, one thing is sent a tweet and the other is like create workgroups. We'll is assume what you did there beef doesn't make much sense to me, Oh yeah. Okay. What I mean will as being sarcastic. Yeah, and you're saying this good your tire thing is not a big deal she had has hit the fucking fan and Donald Trump felt need to ask Americans to boycott an American company instead of. Focusing has ever done any of these other nasty things. What did they do? Well, here's what happened guys. Apparently there was a slide. That went around from a diversity training one employee at a Topeka. Kansas factory shared this on social media and said, they say we can't wear Maga- gear. To which president trump ran with it, and he tweeted don't buy goodyear tires. They announced a ban on mega hats get better tires for far less open parentheses. This is what the radical left Democrats due to play the same game and we have to start playing it now and guys one minute one minute later shares of the ohio-based Goodyear fell. To a low of nine fifteen. Down six don't want. You don't want the president of the United States calling for a boycott company GONNA hey. Him, they can't wear the fucking, hats. Offensive than the Maga- stuff was on the on the bad list was blue lives matter in on the good list was BLM's you're allowed to rock. Wanted you couldn't rock blue lives matter. Those slide was outrageous if existed that should have never been shown in a at a company it was very, very partisan. Or. Here's what I say no, no beef you had your five minutes. Here's what I would say to anyone. It goes both ways if you boycott beings because you know you do don't like trump but those warrior favorite dinner beans and now you're not eating your favorite beans. You're a Weirdo if you if you boycott tires that and again you can do the research goodyear may or may not be the best they may or may not be the best price may or may not be the best safes. But if you originally thought they were and they're protecting you and your family. Now boycott them over this it goes on both sides. It's a nine years. Nah I disagree. I. Think it's totally fine if they're infringing on your freedom of speech, this fucking company telling us on fringing on both. Taking they're taking a fucking side obviously. These. This this guy, might this one factory might? Attract they know they were attracted it. Hammer, coming down corporate tried to retract but I mean the damage is done. Let me just ask just as bad. Let me just ask you this from a money standpoint who buys more fucking expensive tires. Truck. Drivers right. So, like this is this for goodyear specifically as a company, this could be more of a detrimental blow them to other industries. I. Agree with you. There Gentlemen, people. Yes. I agree with you that you guys are all dumbest shit because it was an unverified fucking tweet some guy tweeted a thin. We've also gentlemen imported tires are sold in this fucking country. We are in an economic goddamn crisis. When you have a leader, you want leader to not make it about himself. Just fucking. Let it go do their you saying that wasn't displayed a good year meeting. Well, here's what happened goodyear tyres. By saying that what you're saying they said the slide was quote not created or distributed by good corporate whatsoever, and I was like corporate but one of their employees at their office. That I guess it was one factory this point some dude took a picture of a slide that was not from corporate posted to the Internet and our president without verification ran with it and asked Americans being caught. Presentation at work. To. Your being to cold on it if it was a good year presentation on a factory that shouldn't have happened. These guys it. It's one hundred, Eighty, eight, the runs. The fact is. You should be fired. You do right now is not the time to ask anyone to boycott any American company with what about going. With that, you didn't say anything about gray. Gray has nothing to do with this. It does. Brand. On the last two duguay guys one minute left one by the right greg. My stance is all boycotts on either side. If you prefer that product, you're silly silly goose and maybe prefer your partisanship over the product and then now becomes your favorite thing. But to me that just weird are well, let me finish the fuck information. So they deny that it was from four hundred please they further clarified and they said it was not part of diversity training classes. So probably what it was if it wasn't fake, it was real. It was one area one plant not from corporate good. Yes complaint. Fired they further clarified guys that their general general policy indicates that they ask their employees to keep their workplace nonpartisan saying quote, we do lower socio to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask they refrained from workplace expressions verbal or otherwise in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party, as well as other simple similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues. So if you want to know what s specifically it was, it was acceptable black lives matter lesbian gay bisexual transgender pride unacceptable blue lives matter all lives matter matter Maga- tire politically affiliates slogans or betrayal again goodyear's denying it's from corporate. Yeah it's not as. DUMB HR REP at factory. Put It on thing for somebody to take a picture I have no conflict of interest. I don't know a single person that works good. You're what I'm saying is it is also unfair if they retracted and if they fire this person to gentlemen. As we shouldn't be having this conversation because the president shouldn't have taken verified tweet and tweet it boyscout mcquaid. Have the logo I mean it's got the logo on your right wes.

Ben Lerner: The Topeka School

"I Michael Silver Blunt this bookworm and I'm pleased to have is my guest today. Ben Lerner whose most recent novel is the Topeka School. He's also a poet and SAS His first book leaving the coaches station was recommended to me by John. Ashbery and I read it immediately. radiantly and I've read everything. Since the second novel was called Teno four and now the Topeka school there was an an essay that preceded the spoke about debating and it revealed to me that perhaps the first two books leaving the Atocha station and ten. Oh four our IMA debate at any rate some kind of conversation conversation with one another and that now the debate has moved into one volume can talk to me about the yeah. That's really that's an interesting way to look at it. I mean leaving the station kind of narrator the young narrator is incredibly distrustful of language and basically tells all kinds of lies some comics some Tragic comic in order to try to present himself to others. But certainly languages technology of obfuscation and That's that's certainly one of the things you can learn and debate is kind of weaponized eloquence. That's designed to conceal an antenna four. You're right that the movement is towards the kind of seeking out possibilities of authentic language even with a commercialized and militarized vocabulary or whatnot. And now the Topeka schools rules kind of the Prequel to those different type to both strains of language and Adam Gordon in the second book the search for sincerity or authenticity seemed to point toward a humanism that the book didn't may be entirely believe Huger and so the book is marked by acts of generosity Enron city and kindness. Adam Gordon is he the hero of both previous books. Yeah it's funny. I mean there's a little bit of a slippage between the first and second in that the narrator of the second novel is to a certain degree the narrator of the first novel so it's like the fictional avatar Dr and leaving the station. Then you get the author of the Fictional Avatar. Who still not quite me? And the second and the third you Kinda Really Adam Gordon. But it's basically continuous tenuous. Is it in some way trilogy. I think very much as a trilogy. That's the way I thought that. Yes and but also pardon me a hit galleon trilogy ending in a kind of synthesis with in the Topeka School I've thought an act of sensitivity and generosity that saves the writer from any accusations. You might still have that. He's the guy who went to Spain to write a poem about in Spanish poetry Wong liking none of it at all so that kind of arrogance seems to be drained from the Topeka school. Yeah I mean I think the I think of it as a trilogy in which the third turn the Topeka. School is kind of the unconscious of the the other two books. So that there's a way in which you know Adam Adam Gordon in the first novel like when he tells this lie about his mom beam in dead in order to get the sympathy of an attractive stranger also in order to kind of test out the thing. He's most afraid of that. That has a prehistory by virtue of reading reading the Topeka's score that makes that a more nuanced and complicated event Ben Lerner. My guest is the author of three novels which which as they appeared looked this continuous leaving. The station is the first the second is ten. Oh four which is a significant time. In what is the name of that movie was in back to the future. That's tr- it's the moment. Lightning hits the Clock Tower which which sends ends the delorean back to the future and time the past and the future and it's merging are are important here in Topeka school. The threat to consciousness is not growing up that there's a kind of sometimes called boy. Man sometimes called lost boy. He's given italicized is space in the novel. He's what any of US might be. If we fail to be able to encompass us are fuller human nature. Yes was this a fear. Yeah well in the in the Topeka school. There's this guy dare ran right who's often referred to as the man child and in a way. He's the total opposite of Adam Gordon because he doesn't have any of the resources sources he's in a way. The novel doesn't specify developmentally delayed. He doesn't have the privileges Adam has he certainly doesn't have the language but on the other hand he's really linked don't and it kind of symmetry without him Gordon in part because this guy dare ends psychologist is Adams Dad. So there's a kind of weird fraternity. They are Adam. Can't know this of course wouldn't have been information. His father would have shared but also because they're both totally dominated by the desire to pass as quote unquote real men and and they're locked in a kind of adolescent masculine terror about About whether or not they're going to be found out to be one in that regard hard and there's a way in which that kind of anxiety about being a man child or not growing up or not being able to inhabit your life and language without irony is continuous across the books. Although Darren's body will age his mind stays the age it was when he he was so to speak arrested. And even he is becomes aware of this deficiency. It's right he's the most teased he used and ridicule of more children. And then the other horrible thing happens. People decide to befriend him and he can't tell so when they're being friendly when they're being manipulative and when they're laughing behind his back that's right and Adam He's our hero but he's not a lost boy but he graduates to become a nerd. Yeah Well Adam is involved in this torturous ensemble of practices to try to pass as a real man that involves trying to somehow. Oh it once to to kind of his debate stardom back kind of linguistic combat At once in some kind of keeping with the household values of talk in in an election that come from his psychologist parents but on the other hand it's supposed to be a kind of weaponized speech that can enable him to be tough enough and the masculine culture that that's around him. I make one other Darren and Adam that links them. That's maybe interesting in this regard. Is You know. They're both also in their way kind of poets wits. They're they're they're tellers of tall tales. Who believe in the magical incantatory power of language which is something all children believe in like in a way? If if I just say one place this novel came out of. Its from that that thing. When you're a kid I don't know if you had this when you were a kid? Which is win if you go to like a teacher? Because you've been teased seized mercilessly on the playground. And you say so. and So said this about me. They they would arm you with the spell the sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. I was always fascinated me. Turn it of which also appears here. I'm rubber you're Google and whatever you say bounces off me and sticks back on you. That's right and those two in a way. Those are the two urban poems in this book because one of the things.

And then all of a sudden everything flipped, and they realized that people who bought these cards were taking advantage of it. Because it's an awesome deal a hundred and seventy million dollars painting with this AmEx. Just for the points. That holy shit points. So big role show here. We're going to do a Super Bowl halftime show draft who can draft the best. Now. This is interesting. It's only post two thousand Super Bowl halftime show. This is interesting because there's only been nineteen obviously since two thousand and I would say a vast majority of them were not good like I after about six or seven. I realized that I'd be picking at least one or two that. I hated because. Okay. It's four of us only three of them are going to be picked, and there's at least eight I would never pick. If you gave me four free range picks. That's where the fun. That's where the fun of the draft comes in having to decide between the Rolling Stones are fucking the who we're gonna have to do drafts of things with less options. I like this. This makes it more makes it tougher. And we're going to do for the first time a random live drawing of who will go, I know more audience goes first or last alternating, you guy. May go. I every time or last every time we're gonna make it gonna randomize it. All right. And actually before we get into news here. Jimmy Fallon Jimmy's gonna talk to Adam LeVine for a bit. Adam LeVine big performance later today. Jimmy got a couple of questions for him has the voice everything going their buddy, Blake Shelton crate. Everyone's great Blake still stupid..

"And then I guess the headset is the version of the friend of steep Amyot chits jumping over the top of the octagon to just yet are creating mayhem. Right, but then appropriate analogy as well. We've got to beat the colts. And then I'll take you know, obviously, either one I feel I just feel confident I feel like we can do it knowing that I'm going to get lit up. If does all right, man. I mean, you're a fan. That's that's that. Let's go to the phone lines. We asked for phone calls for Eric. And we have received them Topeka, Kansas. Hey, Mason in Topeka. You're on the rich Eisen show their extolling street. What's up Mason? Hey, what's up guys? You got to do it. I was just calling touching on the chiefs a lot Eric. I was curious of your perspective on the current case day situation, you know, climbing coming in Snyder, retire, and you know, you need coats in North Dakota state for seventy two and six I believe coaches Carson Wentz zero star coming there. About the retirement center was at the right time. And if you if you like that higher. Well, you know, it's the right time for coach. Or if it was if he feels that if he feels it, and I and I know coach Snyder well enough to know that he he puts university and program for himself, and he puts his family before a lot of other things. So I think that I said before a yield coach Snyder and he decided to retire and I yield to him on that. And with respect to coach climbing coming in like he said he's Jack to be there. I'm Jack to have reached out to him because he reach out to you, not directly in person, but indirectly we've had conversations through the athletic director and Ricky aware that it is should be a first order of business is to get into contact with you. You. Might have been a part of the negotiating process. You know, look, I I love Kansas state. And I think he's you know, it's not like we went out and got the third best coach in that division. We went and got the guy that's won multiple multiple championships. Right. Is a good working relationship with Jean Taylor are athletic director. He's hired a good staff. He understands what he's stepping into at Kansas state, and what it is to be in Manhattan, Kansas. He's in Iowa guy. Meaning he's the midwest guy. He gets the culture the climate of what it is to coach Manhattan, which is like, it's an island. You know, it's in the middle of nowhere. And he's going to get guys to want to come there and play and he's going to get the right guys to come there and play because you come to Manhattan, Kansas. Do you have to rely on your teammates as your family because you you don't have the bright lights of Kansas City? It's two hours away. So you reason our teams have been good is because they they they commit to each other and becoming friends with each other on the football field. There's programs that you know, like in the NFL offensive guys don't even know defensive guys names at Ohio State and some of those big programs friends at K state, their family is funny. Every year you'll text me before the draft look out for this guy look out for that guy. One of the guys you said that to me few years ago. It was when the Seahawks drafted Tyler Lockett that guy has become a bright shining star in Seattle. Yeah. I I also texted some people at the chiefs, and I said, please don't sleep Tyler Lockett like what did they say? Well, they. I wanted him in Kansas City, so bad. I forget who we drafted that could've been tyreek hill and. Give. We took markets Peter's. So I don't know who we took second that here. But Tyler Lockett is unbelievable. Unbelievable. And he his work ethic. He is the consummate pro, and that's what Bill Schneider's reputation was writing these guys ready for the next level of their life. Whether it's the NFL or whether it's just being respectable human being in society. Now, you've got cliff Kingsbury going from the big twelve by way, a quick stop here at USC for like. And I I think what we're seeing is the combination of Sean McVeigh's young wonder pinned schemers Tom Landry when they hired him in there. And he's six so it's not new, but it's rare that said we're also seeing I it has to be what Mahomes has done..

"Of context guileless in a way that certainly does not describe Bush or any of the people he chose to speak it as fair. Well, the service was replete with praise for the forty first president that could with just the slightest nudge of interpretation be heard as implied rebuke of the forty fifth president, but only implied never explicit. This. Unlike almost everything else in American politics today was not about Donald Trump. And yet it very much was many of the speakers listed, personal qualities are forty first president that they thought were central to the character of that respected leader similarly commentators in print radio and television delineated some of these traits. Here's a list of some of the adjectives that writers and opinionated served up in his honour decent. Gracious kind courteous, civil gentle, good, thoughtful, polite. Honorable policy self deprecating the nouns, we're in the same vein. Honesty, integrity, humility. So let's do a little wordplay experiment pudding. John F harasses hypothesis to the test that the memorials for the forty first president also served as a rebuke of the forty fifth experiment is simple. I'll go through that list again. But I'll pause at each one and invite you to ask yourself this question to what extent does each word of presidential description fit, the current occupant of the White House decent. Gracious. Kind. Courteous. Civil. Gentle. Good. Thoughtful. Polite. Honorable. Tallest self deprecating. Honesty. Integrity. Humility. Not all or total misfits. But most are when we elect presidents. We elect them for a combination of two sets of variables. The first set contains policies ideas, initiatives and philosophy. The second set contains elements have character, charm personality, behaviors, and charisma I voted for Donald Trump based on the first set. I am almost daily repulsed by how he exhibits the second set, the vast majority of his policies are quite similar to those their president, George H W Bush, but his personal qualities are close to the opposite of President Bush's.
