Veterans in the Labor Movement w/ Will Attig + Conservative Media has the WRONG Priorities - TVLR 3/26/22

William Attig, executive director of the Union Veterans Council, talks about being arrested supporting Alabama coal miners and the work his organization does for union veterans. We talk about a story that animated right wing weirdos for a week, and what didn’t. And you know there is always more.

The Valley Labor Report is the only union talk radio show in Alabama, elevating workers struggles for justice and fairness on the job, educating folks about how they can do the same, and bringing relevant news to workers in Alabama and beyond.
