MSNBC's Chris Hayes Breaks Down The NLRB Confirmation Fight #default

Workers turn to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) when they are discriminated against, illegally fired or otherwise prevented from working together for change. However, this protection for workers is now in grave jeopardy.

Even if you're new to the turmoil surrounding the obstruction of the NLRB appointments, you'll have a clear picture of exactly what's at stake after watching this July 9th opening segment from MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes". Hayes is joined by Communications Workers of America President Larry Cohen, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-CA), Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) to break down the NLRB confirmation fight and discuss the negative impact this gridlock is having on millions of workers.
