One May 23, The Labor Forum explores the reality of another group of low-wage workers with our guest, Peter Pihos, an adjunct professor at Duke University in N.C.who is organizing for living wages and a union at the prestigious and wealthy university.
He will be interviewed from 4:15-4:30 on WRFG 89.3FM.
At 4:30, Tiffany Williams Roberts, a civil rights and criminal defense attorney, will be joining us in studio. She is an activist with Black Lives Matter and will be discussing how the “school to prison pipeline” works. One of the many issues facing working class parents is that of the connection between unequal education and unequal justice in the legal system.
Tens of thousands of youth of color face life-altering criminal records, initiated by school security officers and local prosecutors.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday from 4-5pm and brings focus on the many workplace, community, national and international struggles against exploitation and oppression by poor and working people.
The Labor Forum team has expanded with Dawn O’Neal and Annette Taylor joining Dianne Mathiowetz, Paul McLennan, Christopher Hollis and Azi Ebrahimi in producing and hosting the weekly program.
