When wages stagnate, so does America

Decades of public policy have led to today’s stark wage gap between the rich and poor. Michael Lind is an author, columnist for Tablet, and professor of practice at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs of the University of Texas at Austin. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss the forces that curbed bargaining power for workers and why he feels restoring it is essential to the future of democracy and the nation. His book is “Hell to Pay: How the Suppression of Wages Is Destroying America.”
