In the first interview, Wade speaks with NPR reporter Stephan Bisaha about the process of starting a campaign to unionize, and why exactly it’s so difficult to win against big employers.

In the second, after the union vote has been tallied, Wade speaks about what its aftermath means for Southern organizing.
