Robert Reich breaks down the political choices that have systematically dismantled worker power over the past 40 years — and how we can build a world where workers have a real voice again.

For the past 40 years, the voice of workers has been steadily drowned out in both the workplace and on the national political stage by the voice of big corporations.
