What does a worker-centered trade policy look like? Sen. Sherrod Brown, one of the Senate’s most effective advocates of working people and labor rights, has argued that to stop the business model of moving production overseas, we must raise labor standards in every country we trade with–and ensure they’re enforced. It’s not just humane. It’s self-interest. He’s also pushing hard for Congress to pass the American Jobs Plan and make historic, much-needed investments in improving our nation’s infrastructure, affordable housing, school facilities, manufacturing and skills training, and more–all while creating good-paying American jobs. We’ll also hear the Senator’s thoughts on the filibuster and the Senate as an institution and his key concerns in the short and long-term state of our democracy in the wake of Covid.
