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.

Hyatt Workers Civil Disobedience Nationwide -28'  

Fed Up Hyatt Workers Protest Nationwide – Hundreds Arrested
. Jessie Ham, Hyatt Regency, Indianapolis where workers are in an organizing drive
. Chris Saez, Shop Steward, Hyatt McCormick, Chicago
. Annemarie Strassel, National Spokesperson, UNITE HERE Hotel Workers Rising Campaign

Facing layoffs and cutbacks, thousands of hotel workers in 15 cities across North America held demonstrations recently, protesting Hyatt and its billionaire ownership family, the Pritzkers—one of the wealthiest and most politically influential families in America. As part of these actions, hundreds of workers and supporters took arrest in coordinated acts of non-violent civil disobedience to express their outrage at how the company is trying to make the recession permanent for workers by outsourcing, slashing jobs and workers' hours at its hotels across the country, despite significantly improving industry conditions and Hyatt's rising share value.
