The Launch of a Jobs Movement

Greg Cotterill interviews MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan in Seneca Falls

Q:So Dylan, welcome to Seneca Falls.  I know you’ve been here on and off over the past few days.  How do you think the show went tonight?

A: It was fantastic.  It was just incredible to be able to be in a place that’s not only similar to my own hometown of Saranac Lake, but to be able to be in a small town like Seneca Falls that is so emblematic, I think, of America at it’s best…A historic location…A location that served as the founding location for the women’s suffrage movement, at a time when we need another movement in this country.  We really need this entire country to gather around a shared set of values that create good work for American people.

Q: And that’s what your Steel on Wheels Tour is all about?

A: The Steel on Wheels Tour, quite simply, is being launched to start a Jobs Movement in America…There is a huge group of us out there that want to see a jobs movement come together in this country and not just one that creates work, but one that creates meaningful work that solves our countries problems.

You know you’ve got a screwed up situation, when you have millions of people who don’t have jobs and a long list of problems like the ones that we have – from expensive health care to the importing of foreign energy.  Clearly there is an opportunity to innovate and invest in work for the unemployed that solves our problems, whether it is in the energy sector, the healthcare sector or many others that I surely cant even think of at this point.

Q: 15 miles away is Auburn, NY.  That’s where NUCOR Steel has a plant and a lot of people over there were probably watching today.

Nucor is one of those great America companies that represents our people at its best.  It represents a value system of meaningful work in this country…that is a combination of manufacturing and innovation….a lot of people may not understand how innovative a company Nucor Steel is and has been and how competitive that how company is because of their innovative culture and also because of their relatively unique management structure and the philosophy of “share the pain, share the gain” that goes from the top of that company to the bottom.
