The segment also touched on whether rapidly advancing technology has created anxiety among workers in a variety of industries, and if we more labor disputes and work stoppages should be expected.
We made edits for time and thought you might like to hear our entire conversation with both FBN’s Jeff Flock and economist Diana Furchtgott-Roth.
