This is a video from my new show, Counterpoint PA, the only grassroots progressive newscast exclusively about Pennsylvania politics.
In this video, I discuss new analysis by nonprofit news outfit Public Source that shows Pennsylvania having the fourth most hotels with labor law violations of all the United States. I show where in the state the most labor law violations at hotels have happened, give specifics on the kinds of labor law violations at hotels that have happened (including child labor), and offer a bit of my own commentary about what it means for our society.

As well as The Breakdown, which this week will feature the second half of my exclusive interview with Sue Lyons, author of the resolution calling for a moratorium on fracking recently formally adopted as the official position of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party about fracking and her resolution.
All that plus Counterpoint PA's special homage to Keith Olbermann, the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week!
