Amazon Union Inspiring A Revolution in Worker's Rights - Economic Update with Richard Wolff

Chris Smalls from Amazon's new Staten Island union speaks with Prof Wolff about current drives to unionize across the country and why workers are ready to make a change in their workplaces.

"I believe that workers are going to start unionizing at a rapid pace because now they see that once again the CEO's of these companies are making billions upon billions on our backs. And they're flying to space and coming back and thanking us. That's just not gonna fly with us anymore." - Chris Smalls
