As is our custom on Punkonomics, the guest gets to control the show but I do intend to ask some questions about actions the 1199 are taking locally and nationally, what the future holds, and surely we’ll also talk about the rising gross injustices around us.
Here’s some background info on the 1199SEIU. Make sure you watch the short video to get an idea of who they are and how important they were and continue to be. MLK called them his “favorite union.” http://www.1199seiu.org/florida , https://www.facebook.com/1199SEIUFlorida
