Advocate Meagan Published by Center for Worker Freedom on South Park and Uber

Advocate Meagan Nelson was published by the Center for Worker Freedom on South Park’s take on taxicab unions.

On-demand car services are currently the hottest thing in tech, and while hit TV shows like “South Park” are highlighting this phenomenon, taxi drivers are doing everything in their power to stop it.

On demand car services, also known as “ridesharing,” allow customers to request a car from their phone, track the car via the phone’s GPS, and pay from their credit card that the ridesharing company has on file.  While one such car service, Uber, is worth $18.2 billion dollars, and is by far the most popular ridesharing method, taxicab drivers argue that Uber should be banned because it does not have to follow the same regulations as taxicab drivers and the service unfairly excludes low-income people.

Civil Servants Hold One Day Strike Over Pay Dispute

Advocate Meagan Published by Center for Worker Freedom on Teacher Strikes

Advocate Meagan Nelson was published by the Center for Worker Freedom on one workers’ plight to seek ACLU representation.

This August, at a back-to-school night at Thomas Star King Middle School in Los Angeles, parents were eager to hear about the progress of their children’s education, but instead were bothered to hear a union representative agitate about labor issues and imply there would be a teachers’ strike if the issues were unresolved.

Parents reminded the representative that this was not right moment to mention a strike, and mentioned that the very thought of one infuriated them.

Advocate Axel Interviewed by PanAm Post on Liberty in South America

Advocate Axel Kaiser was interviewed in the PanAmerican Post on liberty in South America.

I immediately recognized him from his Chilean accent during a coffee break at theInternational Congress of Austrian Economics, held earlier this week in Rosario, Argentina. Axel Kaiser, executive director of the Foundation for Progress, was wrapping up a conversation with other attendees, black coffee in hand, when he accepted my invitation to conduct this interview.

The libertarian lawyer is a controversial figure. He speaks clearly, directly, and doesn’t beat around the bush. The politically correct is not for him. Reactions to his writings in some of Chile’s most prominent media publications are very polarized — you either love him or hate him.
