Labor Report: VW, TN, and SC; Net Neutrality; Retirement Woes


When Tennessee politicians threatened Volkswagen workers, they broke Federal law by violating labor rights. South Carolina’s governor tells companies with unions or that support unions to stay away from her state. They’re not welcome in South Carolina. Why are politicians declaring war on free enterprise and freedom of assembly?

Also, if net neutrality falls, constricted internet access will go to the highest bidder and result in fewer information choices. Are fewer internet providers and fewer information choices really better for America?

Corporate pensions are falling by the wayside. Many politicians want to cut social security. That means three legs of the retirement stool are being cut (the third is personal savings). If wages don’t go up so people can save, corporate pensions disappear, and social security is weakened, well, America won’t be a friendly place to grow old.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
