On the February 6th edition of  Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss the declining coverage of labor in the media. As the declining middle class, income inequality and wage stagnation have become big issues, who is focusing on the state of organized labor and why does it matter? We will also discuss the political crisis in Jordan. We will be joined by Steven Greenhouse, former NY Time’s labor reporter, and Guardian’s Martin Chulov. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Steven Greenhouse, former labor and workplace reporter for The New York Times, author of The Big Squeeze: Tough Times for the American Worker

Martin Chulov, Middle East correspondent for the Guardian of London
