Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

"The Toyota You Don't Know"
Charlie Charles Kernaghan and Barbara Briggs,
National Labor Committee

Toyota, may be known for environmentally friendly cars, but that
"sensitivity" hardy extends to its treatment of its workers in Japan, U.S. ,
Burma and the Philippines. Building Bridges previews a new expose,
"The Toyota You Don't Know" a study in abuse.
What's Driving the Price of Oil?
James Paul, Ex. Dir., Global Policy Forum

Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said Sunday, at a high-level oil summit
that Saudi Arabia is willing to pump more oil if customers need it - will
this stem the skyrocketing price of oil at the pump? Is the price of oil
driven by speculators, the high fuel taxes in consuming countries and
increased oil consumption in developing economies? Is the price of oil
driven by the record profits of the oil companies and lack of conservation
especially in the U.S?
Atlantic City Casino Workers Want to be Dealt a Fair Hand
Ed Little, dealer at Trump Plaza
Sharon Masino, dealer at Caesar's Palace

Casino dealers, slot technicians, keno and simulcast workers won six
U.A.W. union representation elections at four major Atlantic City casinos.
While the owners make huge profits, casino workers wages, health care
benefits and working conditions have deteriorated. And, despite the
overwhelming pro-union majorities in the elections, casino operators are
playing Russian Roulette with workers seeking a contract.
