Sunday's Show & Charts (April 29)

Sunday's show focused on the labor movement's relationship with Democrats, Occupy's plans for a May Day general strike, and guest Daron Acemoglu's book "Why Nations Fail."

Here are some charts from those discussions showing a diminishing number of strikes with more than 1000 workers and the relationship between union membership and middle class income. 

 

Also, Chris and his guests looked at austerity measures in the UK and their effect on the UK's double dip recession.

Joining Chris on the panel were:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) (@repjerrynadler), represents part of Manhattan and Brooklyn, serves on the Judiciary and Transportation & Infrastructure committees.

Randi Weingarten (@rweingarten), president of the American Federation of Teachers.

Bill Fletcher, co-founder of the Center for Labor Renewal.

Marina Sitrin, member of the Occupy Wall Street Legal Working Group.
