On this week’s Lever Time, host David Sirota is joined by The Lever’s Julia Rock and Roosevelt Institute economist JW Mason for a deep dive into the Federal Reserve’s move to address inflation by trying to crush workers’ wages. Mason argues that such a decision isn’t dispassionate, but instead a highly ideological move that sides with the wealthy and corporations. He also reviews alternative ways to combat inflation that would shield workers from the most acute pain.
