Working Lunch: Labor union popularity highest since 2003

Also, Trump siding with Democratic leaders on debt ceiling

Americans say they support labor unions more than they have in than a decade. Will that change Labor's strategy in trying to bring in new members and should entry-level employers be worried? Also, President Trump sided with Democratic leadership this week over the debt ceiling. Both sides showed a willingness to work together. On this episode, the Align crew discusses whether this friendliness impacts tax reform talks and getting something done. Plus, the legislative scorecard this week brings news out of Massachusetts involving ballot initiatives that could impact operators. Listen on to hear about those developments and the latest on paid leave in various parts of the country.
