Boney Fingers: Why Should Work Be Life-Sucking?

National radio commentator, writer, public speaker, and author of the book, "Swim Against The Current: Even A Dead Fish Can Go With The Flow," Jim Hightower has spent three decades battling the Powers That Be on behalf of the Powers That Ought To Be - consumers, working families, environmentalists, small businesses, and just-plain-folks.

He broadcasts daily radio commentaries that are carried in more than 150 commercial and public stations and on the web.
