WRFG Labor Forum Program on Monday, April11
The April 11th Labor Forum program on WRFG 89.3FM will focus on the Fight for $15 and a Union with a call-in by Felicia Arrigua, an organizer with Duke Students and Workers in Solidarity(DSWS) and local activists who are home care and fast food workers.
Nine members of DSWS occupied the university President’s office for a week to demand higher wages and respect for campus workers and an end to racist and discriminatory practices.We will talk with Felicia about the significance of their action and what is next for the group.
April 14 is the next major national strike day for the Fight for $15 and a Union. Low-wage workers from restaurant, retail, home care, hotel, airport, day care and other service fields have won higher pay and other concessions from a number of corporate giants as a result of their bold and determined struggle.
Yet the battle for living wages, decent working conditions and the right to a union is far from over.
ATL Raise Up has led the battle in this city and is mobilizing for this Thursday’s action.
Tune in to The Labor Forum from 4-5pm to learn what motivates these workers and students and how you can help win justice for all working people.
