Episode 90 - SAG-AFTRA's Failure of Leadership with Joe Hartzler

We spoke with SAG-AFTRA member/twitch streamer Joe Hartzler (@jokehartzler) about how recent changes his union’s health insurance plan directly harms rank and file workers. The changes are the latest example in a decades long pattern of cutting services/wages for lower income actors. In the second half OK discusses recent actions Tenants Unions across the city have been doing to fight luxury development and its relationship to mass houselessness. Finally, Lucia discusses Constructing the Real and future of radical or safe education structures.
