Worth a Read
This week’s free post will be on the UAW strike and how the Big Three auto manufacturers can deliver all their demands. A big part of the negotiation is on the issue of tiers, I suggest you read this piece by Jacobin, in which a UAW worker explains the absurd and byzantine tier system workers are subjected to.
Worth a Look
I recently rewatched Stanley Kubrick’s The Shinning in preparation for my appearance on the Left of the Projector podcast. I’ll share the episode when it comes out, but in the meantime, I recommend The Shinning to anyone looking to get into the spooky season state of mind.
Worth a Listen
The latest episode ofcovered the Writers Guild contract, which was ratified earlier this week. Hosts and talk to a member of the WGA, who shares his thoughts on what the writers got from their new deal.
It’s definitely worth a listen.
