What caused the Norfolk Southern train wreck in East Palestine, Ohio, and who should be held accountable? Is the issue at hand just a problem of brakes, or is there a more systemic cause behind the 1000+ train derailments each year in the US? Retired railway workers Jeff Kurtz and Mark Burrows join TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez to explain how railroad workers’ long fight for better conditions against Wall St profiteers is at the heart of this tragic story.
