Should Police Unions Be Recognized by the Greater Union Leadership?

In the light of recent events (Aug 12 2017)….We at WDTW fully condemn the attacks levied on our working class brothers and sisters in Charlottesville Va this past Saturday.  WDTW stands for the unity of all races and creeds under the banner of We Make The Fucking World Go Round.  Racism in any manifestation is a direct affront to all that we stand for at WDTW.  And with that, we introduce this episode dealing with the discussion on whether or not police are valid members of the working class.  More to come...

Little Porter, Sarah Morken for Tacoma City Council, and Jen Johnson…the finest people you’ll come to know.

Today we talk to Tacoma City Council candidate Sarah Morken.  We jack we jaw, it's a little lengthy, but full of great working fool information.  We also take a moment in the begining of the episode to chat about one of the finest people you'll come to know, Jen Johnson and her baby Porter.  Porter was recently diagnosed with Leukeia and is in the begining of what in the best case is a 3 year battle. Take a moment to get to know JJ and Porter, and if you have a bit, give a little to his Gofundme page.

Randy Bryce and Elise Jones, Do They Have Anything in Common

If you’ve listened to a single episode of this podcast you’ve probably heard us talk about the hijacking of the labor movement by the Democratic Party.  Tonight we talk at some length about Randy Bryce, and iron worker running for congress in Wisconsin.  Randy WDTW has a few questions for you that we outline in this show, we’d love a chance to talk with you.  Likewise we’ve got some question for Elise Jones who comes up in the second half of the show.  We do say the them of this episode is business unionism, but we don’t quite get there between Bryce and Jones.

Fight for 15 Part B

 
Today we continue our discussion about the fight for a $15 minimum wage.  In this episode we address some of the misconceptions about a $15 minimum wage and debunk some of the myths surrounding the alleged negative effects such an increase might have.  I get pretty worked up so there might be an exorbitant amount of F bombs, fair warning.

We Do The Work Episode 1

We Do The Work Debut episode! Music by Dropkick Murphy and Matene Strikes First.  We delve into the concept of We Do The Work, what we stand for, and where we're heading.  In this episode we focus on the current conflict at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, the valiant efforts of Labor For Standing Rock, and why the hell any worker should concern themselves with the Dakota Access Pipeline. We Interview Jennifer Lewis, a member of the Seneca Tribe from upstate New York and Matt Stys, a US Army Veteran who after a few combat tours decided he could better focus his efforts on furthering the power of the working class.  It's a little long, but stick with it, you won't be disappointed.
