Mayoral Candidate Steve Miller & Worker Co-ops

This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll have another candidate for Mayor: Steve Miller, a construction lawyer who says it’s all about connections like transportation, infrastructure and neighborhoods. Then, unions are intended to level the playing field with the boss, but what if workers become their own bosses?  We’ll talk with UMKC economist Erik Olsen about worker cooperatives, and ask if they might be the future for the organized workplace. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
