Posted on

In episode 19, we talk HR Current Events with the latest efforts to unionize the VW plant in Chattanooga.  In HR Pop Culture, we look at the the labor market in Portland, Oregon, where the TV show Portlandia says is the place where young people go to retire.  We also answer a great questions for Superfan #5, and our look out for Superfan #6. Finally, in That’s Dumb with Kristin, we wonder why some people always talk on the surface during an interview.
