Episode Summary

EDIT
September 24, 1979
AIRED:

Guest Host Edwin Newman interviews guests Tim Rice, lyricist of the musicals "Evita" and "Jesus Christ Superstar," discusses and describes in detail the life of the Argentina heroine Eva Duarte Peron. He claims "Evita" is not really an opera because it has two speeches and they do take liberties in the drama. The second guest is Wiliam Winpisinger, who is The President of the International Association of Machinists, the third largest union in the AFL-CIO. He says there are more strikes in the news and less said about the settlements. Blue Collar Workers Are Not Portrayed Properly on TV. Wages have been chasing prices as the workers fall behind. Employers are looking for cheap labor and will not allow workers to join unions ie. J.P. Stevens. (Newman notes oil companies were invited but did not show). Winpisinger asserts the people must decide if they want a Democratic state or continue with a corporate state. If the oil companies were publicly owned people would get more energy at a low price. He says Senator Kennedy will deal with the middle class, aged and poor and is a leader.
