Rice & Roses #215 : Facts, Fiction and the Union

Ah Quon McElrath hosts a panel discussion that examines the facts and falsehoods about what unions do and how they operate. Panel members are Henry Epstein from the United Public Workers Union (UPW), Walter Kupau from the Carpenters Union, and Slim Shimizu from the Amalgamated Clothing Workers Union (ACW). Topics of discussion include women in unions, if higher pay for union members equates to higher prices for all consumers, wages, housing, land values, land availability, high food costs, workers' rights, and how unions support the community at large.
