Earlier this year, Google employees created their first union. These past few months, tens of thousands of workers went on strike at companies like John Deere and Kellogg's.
Today on the show, author Erik Loomis joins us to talk about his book, "A History of America in Ten Strikes" and the future of organized labor in America.
