70,000 General Motors employees are on strike. Brian and Steve have a question: are unions still relevant? All states have passed various laws in the last 200 years to protect workers in various ways, and while we haven't seen a major strike since 2007, strikes still occur. The massive corporate tax cuts last were promised to "incentivize" corporations to reinvest in their workers, but this never materialized - turns out greed is still king. Steve gives a lesson on union history in America, a called weighs in on the drawbacks of union membership in his particular field.
