Transmissions Ep. 9: The DSA Union and the Online Millennial Left
Welcome to this special episode of Class Unity: Transmissions. In this episode, we present you a discussion addressing two topics.
First, the recent “statement from the DSA union,” complaining about how staffers are going to be laid off because of a lack of money (i.e., membership dues), whilst couching as a labor issue (“critical union jobs” must not be cut “in order to pay for non-union leadership salaries”!).
Second, we discuss a recent interaction between Briahna Joy Gray and Chris Hedges about unions, strikes, and general strikes.
The unifying thread in both these cases is the “magical thinking on the contemporary left.” The team discuss this all against the background of the massive UAW strike sweeping the US auto-manufacturing belt.
