Leo Gerard, International President-United Steelworkers, joins Thom Hartmann. Yesterday - the New York Transport Workers Union - which last week pledged support for the Occupy Wall Street movement - went to court to block New York City and the NYPD from forcing bus drivers to transport arrested Wall Street protestors. After police rounded up and arrested 700 peaceful demonstrators on the Brooklyn Bridge over the weekend - the NYPD ordered unionized bus drivers to haul off the demonstrators. Now - the Transport Workers Union is going to court to make sure that doesn't happen again. This week - other unions are expected to join the Occupy Wall Street movement - swelling the number of demonstrators in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park to its highest numbers yet. So it looks like - with the support of major labor unions - the Occupy Wall Street movement has some teeth. Thom also talks to Leo Gerard about worker cooperatives and - have we reached a tipping point of capitalism?
