The Labor Forum on WRFG 89.3FM marks Labor Day 2017 with interviews with Atlanta Fight for $15 low-wage workers following their early morning actions at McDonalds, part of a national strike day to press for a minimum wage of $15 an hour and the right to join a union. The rising up of poverty wage workers across the country has altered the course of the labor movement in the US, bringing concrete results through creative direct action and infectious energy. This interview will be from 4:15-4:30.
At 4:30, Big E, a host of a New Orleans “Workers Voice” weekly radio program will join us by phone. The Labor Forum listeners will hear how and why the program was started as we talk about the issues facing working and poor communities in that city, still recovering from Hurricane Katrina.
On this Labor Day, we applaud all those “who do the work” and affirm our mission to elevate the voices of working people as we struggle to win true liberation and justice.
The Labor Forum airs every Monday from 4-5pm on WRFG 89.3FM in Atlanta. Your community radio station for progressive information and quality, hand-picked music thanks all our supporters whose financial donations and volunteer hours have kept WRFG on the air for 44 years.
