MILWAUKEE - We welcome Citizen Action of Wisconsin’s Organizing Director, Kevin Kane to discuss the role of the Wisconsin Legislature in helping drug corporation, Mylan, price gouge for EpiPen. Mylan spent thousands on political contributions and tens of thousands on lobbying to use Wisconsin school and recreation programs to expand market for EpiPens.

As we head into Labor Day weekend, we also discuss Kevin Kane’s new research showing a significant decrease in manufacturing wages in Wisconsin between 2010 and 2015 and the role of rigged trade deals and outsourcing in the wage decline.

We look at the latest Wisconsin election polling and discuss Trump’s immigration speech Wednesday. Robert reviews a new op/ed from Paul Ryan and Ron Johnson on poverty and Anita Johnson joins us to discuss how you can enter our contest to win (2) tickets to the Daily Show’s Trevor Noah performance in Milwaukee, Friday, September 9th.
