Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1340
Broadcast Date: Jan. 29, 2010

America's workers need jobs, and AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka is calling on them to stand up and fight. Trumka joins Bill Moyers to offer his perspective on the State of the Union and explains why he thinks President's Obama's plans — and the Republicans' agenda alike — might mean a lost decade for America. Trumka has previously worked as a coal miner, a lawyer and president of the United Mine Workers of America.

Also on the program, are America's elections now up for sale? The JOURNAL explores what the Supreme Court's decision means for campaign finance reform and the future of our democracy with progressive legal experts Monica Youn and Zephyr Teachout. Youn directs the campaign finance reform/money in politics project at NYU's Brennan Center for Law and Justice, and Teachout teaches law and politics at Fordham University's School of Law.
