The Trump administration is trying to dress up a bad idea and sneak it right by the American public. Alex Lawson fills in for Richard Eskow this week, and is joined by Richard Fowler to discuss what’s really behind the paid leave plan being proposed.

Richard Eskow is host and managing editor of The Zero Hour, a weekly radio program produced by We Act Radio. He was the senior writer and editor for the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Richard has written for a number of print and online publications, was a founding contributor to the Huffington Post, and is a longtime activist.
