- Brother Yamashita will discuss some of the struggles facing organized labor and working people in this age of Trump. Did Arizona labor’s role in the mid term elections play out with increased participation and more union members running for office? Can some of the energy spent on elections be transferred to organizing and rebuilding the Labor Movement.
