My Conversation With Robert Reich

Tonight on PBS, I have a conversation with Robert Reich, former secretary of labor under President Bill Clinton and public policy professor at the University of California, Berkeley. The Rhodes Scholar and Yale Law School grad is the author of 13 books, including Aftershock, the basis for the award-winning film Inequality for All. As one of the leading experts on work and the economy, he shares his thoughts on the state of jobs, income inequality and more.

In the clip below, Reich reflects on the bullying he faced as a child, and the political bullies he is trying to stop on behalf of our nation's most vulnerable citizens.

For more of our conversation, be sure to tune in to Tavis Smiley tonight on PBS. Check out our website for your local TV listings:
