This Week's Labor Video

Tax the Rich

Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale, narrated by Ed Asner, with animation by Mike Konopacki, was written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers. The story tells how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality.
