This past Monday, we gathered our favorite thinkers on labor and unions for a live recording of our 212th episode. With the help of Jane McAlevey, Bill Fletcher Jr., and Rebecca Dixon, we looked back on 2020, a tumultuous year for workers.

Jane McAlevey is the Nation‘s strikes correspondent, an organizer, author, and scholar, and a senior policy fellow at the University of California at Berkeley’s Labor Center. Her most recent  book, A Collective Bargain, Unions, Organizing & the Fight for Democracy, is out now from HarperCollins.

Bill Fletcher Jr. is the executive editor of www.globalafricanworker.com, the former president of TransAfrica Forum, and long-time writer and activist who has spent most of his adult life in the left and the trade union movement.

Rebecca Dixon is executive director of the National Employment Law Project (NELP).
