This week we discuss an epic shift in the source of electricity in the United States, and the upheavals the shift has produced. And, I recently spoke with Dr. Cassandra Engeman of Stockholm University about her recent paper titled “When Do Unions Matter to Social Policy? Organized Labor and Leave Legislation in the United States.” The paper is to be published in Social Forces, and is sole-authored.

Segment 1 -- Cassandra Engeman on “When Do Unions Matter to Social Policy? Organized Labor and Leave Legislation in the United States.”

Segment 2 -- The canary in the coal mine: The decline of coal, renewable replacements, and economic hardship in coal-producing Wyoming.
