Capitalism Hits Home: The Real Value of Essential Labor

[S3 E10] New

Direct Download

On this week's show, Dr. Fraad and Julianna Forlano discuss the amazing bill just passed by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s Socialist Labor Party which explores and reveals the economic value of essential caring labor usually done by women. New Zealand’s social workers, child care providers, nursing assistants and other care workers will now be recognized and rewarded with a 30.6% wage increase. Parents who return to the paid labor force can now proudly describe and be rewarded for the skills they learned from caring for vulnerable lives. This is revolutionary.
