Amazon Labor Union’s Chris Smalls faces off against Sen. Graham on workers - https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/05/tech/smalls-graham-amazon/index.html
"The president of the Amazon Labor Union warned Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday that he risks ignoring the concerns of workers at his own political peril.
At the opening of a Senate Banking Committee hearing focused on Amazon (AMZN) (AMZN), in which Graham used his initial remarks to blast the “demonization of individual companies,” Christian Smalls — the Amazon (AMZN) Labor Union head who helped lead a successful union vote in Staten Island last month — told the panel’s ranking Republican that it’s in his “best interest” to listen to workers.
Citing the legal process for challenging illegal anti-union activity, Graham had criticized the committee’s chair, Sen. Bernie Sanders, for holding a “dangerous” hearing that relied on the presumption that “you’ve determined Amazon is a piece of crap company.”"

Key Questions and Answers. - https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/03/upshot/abortion-united-states-roe-wade.html "A leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade describes a United States not seen in half a century, in which the legal status of abortion is entirely up to the states. If the draft, from February and published Monday night by Politico, ends up being similar to the court’s final opinion, expected next month, reproductive rights will be rewritten almost immediately. If Roe were overturned, would abortion become illegal everywhere in the U.S.? No. Individual states would decide whether and when abortions would be legal. Many states would continue to allow them, and some have even begun making provisions to help serve women who live in states that are likely to restrict abortion. Right now, abortion remains legal in every state." ** Become a TDR YouTube Member: http://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport/join Follow The Damage Report on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheDamageReportTYT/ Help build the Home of the Progressives http://tyt.com/JOIN Subscribe to The Damage Report YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/thedamagereport?sub_confirmation=1 Follow The Damage Report on TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@thedamagereport?lang=en Follow The Damage Report on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thedamagereport/ Follow The Damage Report on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheDamageReport #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
