NLRB Workers Fight for Funding, Amazon Puts Alabama Workers at Risk, & More - TVLR 4-2-22

We talk to Birmingham NLRB attorney and president of the NLRB Union Local 10 about how funding cuts have affected the agency, and answer your voicemails. Amazon put Alabama workers in harm's way last week, and we talk to a candidate for Governor.
