This week, Roqayah and Kumars are joined by Kooper Caraway, president of the South Dakota Federation of Labor, he’s also the former statewide representative for AFSCME Council 65, which represents workers in South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota. Previously, Kooper worked with the American Federation of Teachers and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

Kooper joins us to discuss the wave of strikes sweeping across the United States: over 10,000 John Deere workers, 1,400 Kellogg’s cereal factory workers, over 24,000 nurses and healthcare workers at Kaiser Permanente, and many more.

We discuss the tactics being deployed by employers—like attempting to hire non-union workers—and why it's imperative that workers hold the line and continue to fight back.

Kooper explains the optimism present among workers, and how this has driven a new generation of union members and organizers.
