Why Minor League Baseball Needs To Organize

Apr 03, 03:00 PM

This week we speak to longtime labor organizer, writer, and former head of TransAfrica Bill Fletcher about why the time is now for minor league baseball players to form a union. We also have ‘Choice Words’ about the collision of the #blacklivesmatter movement and basketball in Sacramento, a ‘Just Stand Up’ and ‘Sit Yo Ass Down’ award to the Notre Dame Women’s Basketball team and NCAA President Mark Emmert respectively, Kaepernick Watch, and more!
