This week I spoke to OBP’s economics analyst Jamila Michener (pictured above) of Cornell University about the real impact of inflation on low-wage workers, and why they are upsetting power dynamics in the labor market. Farah Stockman discussed her new book on the fates of workers at a factory in Indiana: “American Made: What Happens to People When Work Disappears.” Alina Brown explained why she shares her passion for astrology on YouTube. On the final Sippin’ the Political Tea of the year, Errin Haines of the 19th and Chrissy Greer of Fordham University examined the trajectories of women of color in leadership roles, especially Kamala Harris as she completes her first year as Vice President.
