This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the team from Align Public Strategies takes a deep dive into the labor community to discuss their agenda and how they are approaching 2021.
Mike Saltsman from the Employment Policies Institute joins to talk about what’s ahead for organized labor and how the COVID-19 pandemic is helping them achieve their political, policy and organizing goals.
In response to alarming increases in COVID-19 infections, governors across the country are reluctantly closing down parts of the economy in their states — and many of them are starting with restaurants. The team discusses the dilemma facing governors and mayors with Susan Connelly, chief communications and public affairs officer for Darden Restaurants, getting her insight on how best to work with those leaders and help them better navigate these difficult waters.
The podcast wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
