Rice & Roses #1001 : AFL-CIO: A Change of Command

Rice & Roses shares highlights and perspectives from the AFL-CIO convention in Washington D.C. where George Meany stepped down as Union President and Lane Kirkland took over the position. Their contrasting styles of leadership led some to wonder how Kirkland would face the challenges of a presumed recession, high inflation, national economic policies, and the growing opposition to the labor movement. Recorded circa 1980.
