Prospering In America

Overview & Show Highlights

The ever-increasing number of conservative radio talk shows, led by Rush Limbaugh, have made it almost impossible for the views of labor – the real voice of everyday men and women – to be heard. Even worse, these conservative talk show hosts continually spread misinformation that goes unchallenged because they control the microphone.
Prospering in America has allowed organized labor to make a dramatic impact in parts of New York State. This has taken many forms ranging from listeners calling to ask how to organize their workplace to newspaper reporters listening to the show to gain ideas for stories and new contacts.

Overall, Prospering In America has helped re-establish labor as a viable source of opinions and ideas that directly aids working men and women.
