On tonight's Political Analysis, Sandy LeonVest talks to Labor economist Sylvia Allegretto about the state of the economy ... why the "working poor" shouldn't be poor and SHOULD be earning a living wage. They also discuss the (oxy)moronic concept of a "jobless recovery" and why only Wall Street -- not YOUR street or MY street -- are "recovering" right now.
At the bottom of the hour,the magnificent Dr. Margaret Flowers, who has advocated passionately for a single-payer system of healthcare in the US, talks to SLV about the desperate need for healthcare equity in the US, and why she is personally arso committed to a universal (single-payer) healthcare system. Dr. Flowers recently joined the Occupy movement, which she views as an important vehicle for spreading the word -- and mobilizing activists -- around universal care as a human right.
