7:34 pm
tonight. why now for and how long do you expect this wave to last >> i think you're seeing them now for a couple reasons one there's been long-standing problems in the economy for decades with wages, benefits not being good enough, you know, with bad schedules and the like. then you have the covid economic, which really, really crushed a lot of workers and made them work incredibly harder, or in risky situation while they saw their corporations making record profits. so workers are frustrated, but right now they have some power, because there's a very tight lake market workers are -- they want to seize this opportunity to try to improve the quality of their jobs. >> let's talk about that when you say the solution to the worker shortage is to improve job quality or the quality of their jobs, what do you mean by that >> a number of things. jobs that provide good wages, a
7:35 pm
career ladder, and safe are in too short of supply right now. the kind of things i think we need to do, some of it is workers taking direct action like they're doing now, trying to negotiate to get higher wages, but the economy has been tilted in the last three or four decades toward corporations and away from workers, so we need policy to tilt the playing field back more towards workers. things like the build back better act and the infrastructure deal which always has standards to ensure they'll be good jobs but also that allows workers to join unions more easily. do you think this could flip back and have businesses regain the upper hand >> well, i think you'll see
7:36 pm
these strikes continues while unemployment is incredibly low, but you know, over the past four decades we've only had a handful of years with really tight labor markets like this. so i don't anticipate this happening for a long period of time unless we can shift power in different ways, not just by having a tight labor market, but by having policy more on the side of workers. >> all right david, thanks for joining us tonight. >> thanks for having me. it's not even thanksgiving yet, but christmas is just around the corner. just 33 days from today, in fact retailers are gearing up for a huge shopping weekend, starting with black friday. according to a survey from the national retail federation, many americans already bought their gifts. a report said about half on the survey checked our their list earlier than usual nearly 30% completed their

used to redirect an asteroid before it hits earth why is this mission so critical to nasa right now? >> thanks for having me on today. what's really cool, as you said, this is important for us to test this technique now we want to be ready, if and when there is an actual real threat to earth right now because of the known asteroids we know about, there's none posing a significant threat to earth in the next century or so, but if we discover one, we want to make sure we have the tools in our tool kill to try to change the orbital path. >> can this be programmed as it approaches the asteroid? or do you set it and forget it how much notice do you need before launch? >> those are great questions
