Amazon Workers and the Battle for the Future of Labor

In the wake of an historic pro-labor message from President Biden, Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman go inside the unionization fight at an Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama. First, they're joined by Stuart Appelbaum, national president of the Retail, Wholesale, and Department Store Union (RWDSU), who explains the significance of the Bessemer union drive, and details some of the tactics Amazon has been using to oppose workers' rights. Then Rep. Andy Levin (D, Michigan) joins, ahead of his trip to Bessemer, to talk about about the power of collective action, the Pro Act, and the future of labor rights in America.
