In this episode, our hosts look at contemporary pop-culture references to unions to see what union myths tell us about how to think about our rights and possibilities as workers. Mich and Ihsan explore how these myths appear in anti-union campaigns tactics from some of the biggest corporate employers and how they affect teachers and university workers. Finally, our hosts consider some of the histories and new realities of the public university and union to ask how we can bust these myths and the union-busting practices behind them to fight for a more dignified work experience for all workers at Rutgers.
