Media Roundtable: The Gates Foundation’s Global Agenda & The Alabama Amazon Union Vote
On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we're discussing a new investigation by The Nation’s Tim Schwab called Bill Gates, Climate Warrior. And Super Emitter. He writes: when will the media realize, with Gates, you have to follow the money.
Later in the show, we'll discuss the historic unionization efforts by Amazon workers at a warehouse in Alabama. Mail-in balloting began on February 8. If workers vote yes, it will be the first Amazon warehouse in the US to unionize.
