Michigan's Right-to-Work Laws and the American Middle Class

Hosted by

Right to work advocates made big gains this week in Michigan with the passage of bills that affect both public and private sector employees. Guest host Sara Terry explores why the right to work movement is growing. Who benefits from these laws, and what role does politics play in determining who's covered and who's exempt? Also, is the Syrian government losing its last allies? On Reporter's Notebook, it's Golden Globes time. How much do their nominations matter during Hollywood's awards season?
