‘Labor shortage‘ or a revolt by America‘s fed-up workers?

Joshua Holland kicks off this week's show with a look at some of the problems that are plaguing the 4,000 bored national guard troops who were sent to the Mexican border by Red State governors to serve as props in the right's propaganda war against the Biden administration. 
 
Then we are joined by David Dayen, the executive editor of The American Prospect, to discuss his in-depth piece on how the pandemic has spurred millions of American workers to say 'enough is enough' and strike, quit their jobs, switch careers or open their own small businesses. Dayen says it's the closest thing to a general strike we've seen in decades.
