Monday, April 27, WRFG Labor Forum Program, 4-5pm

On Monday, Ap. 27, The Labor Forum on WRFG 89.3 FM, 4-5pm will cover a number of important issues with our guests, Joyce Gilliard, IATSE #798 on Workers Memorial Day, Ap. 28 which recognizes those workers killed and injured on the job and promotes the fight for worker safety; Charlie Fleming, Georgia State AFL-CIO President on the campaign to stop fast-tracking of the TransPacific Partnership trade agreements and Marshall Rancifer whose own experiences with homelessness fuel his work to help others facing the challenges of survival without shelter. A question to him will be what is the connection of the Fight for $15 and a Union and homelessness, particularly among those who have jobs but can’t afford housing.
Please check out our new website, www.wrfglaborforum.org for more information and share the link with others.
Thank you for your support.

She is a key organizer of the Georgia campaign to “Ban the Box” on employment forms dealing with a person’s arrest and/or conviction record. Formerly-incarcerated men and women are among the millions of workers in the US who face chronic unemployment and/or a lifetime of low-wages.
