Join Robert Reich on Thursday, June 20, noon–1 p.m. EDT for the seventh in the AFL-CIO series of live online discussions on how we build a movement for the future of working people. Reich, former secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton and Chancellor’s professor of public policy at the University of California at Berkeley—and the AFL-CIO—wants to hear your ideas on new ways the labor movement can change economic trends that hurt working people. He poses this question:

The rich keep getting a bigger share of the economic pie while everyone else’s share keeps shrinking. What should be done to reverse this trend?

You can go to the discussion page and give your thoughts now and be sure to come back for the live chat.

Your responses to the questions activists, educators, economists and journalists will be asking through June will help the AFL-CIO  prepare for the 2013 AFL-CIO Convention, which will focus on how we build a movement that can meet the needs of working people now and in the future.
