How is the Trans-Pacific Partnership affecting workers? What are the consequences of the trade deal? On the August 22nd edition of A Public Affair, host Bert Zipperer speaks with David Newby on on the TPP trade deal and other various issues of labor, democracy, and social justice.
Newby is President Emeritus of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO (1994-2010). He has been the Volunteer Coordinator of Wisconsin Labor for Bernie throughout the Primary Election Season of 2015-16 and will continue to be active especially with the labor component of the continuation of Bernie’s campaign, Our Revolution. He is also the President of the Wisconsin Fair Trade Coalition, which works to defeat trade deals that are unfair to workers and the general public and destructive of our economy and our democracy.
