This week, Roqayah and Kumars celebrate Halloween on the After Hours feed with friends of the show Bryan Quinby, Donald Borenstein and Mattie Lubchansky. Bryan is the co-host of Street Fight Radio, alongside Brett Payne, and the cocreator and costar of an upcoming live action comedy series on Means TV. Donald is a freelance journalist and filmmaker whose work has appeared on Means TV. Mattie Lubchansky is the associate editor of The Nib and the author of the Antifa Super Soldier Cookbook as well as the upcoming graphic novel Boys Weekend.
The gang discusses Halloween traditions from candy to costumes before sharing their favorite scary movies and formative horror viewing experiences. Bryan, Donald and Mattie play a spine-tingling new game, and ring in the holiday with some spooky stories.
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.
