About this Episode

In an op-ed at National Review, CRC's Research Director Mike Watson raised serious questions about the agenda and ultimate goal of the ostensibly conservative group American Compass, led by Oren Cass, who is promoting a conservative embrace of unions while taking a great deal of money from lefty funders like the Hewlett Foundation and the Omidyar Network. The piece was in response to a Wall Street Journal op-ed penned by Cass back in September in which he argued that a reformed version of unionism is in line with Republican values. Mike expressed his skepticism, and Cass expressed his displeasure on social media. Mike and Sarah discuss what went down.
