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.

Obama's Jobs Plan - So Where's the Beef? 27:50  

Speaker Boehner’s Adds His Jobs Pitch To Obama’s, So Where’s The Beef?with
Timothy Canova, professor of international economic law and author of The Federal Reserve We Need and the Legacy of the Clinton Bubble

House Speaker John Boehner added his two cents to the pot of job creation
plans when he called for a total reform of the tax code, fewer federal
regulations and an expansion of infrastructure projects and domestic energy production. Boehner’s plan targets the employer side by lowering the
corporate tax rate and rolling back environmental and labor regulations.
Meanwhile, Obama’s plan focuses partially on the employee side of the
equation, with payroll tax breaks and extended unemployment insurance, infrastructure projects and aid to the States for Education Jobs. We’ll
dissect the respective proposals, see the prospects of either plan to put
America back to work and comment on Obama’s deficit reduction proposals. ************
The Socialist Bank of North Dakota
Dr. Rozanne Everson Junker, political scientist

North Dakota has long had a state bank which unlike private banks has
faithfully served the people and the state in good times and bad. We've
talked about a public option for health care, but why not for banks?
Thanks to Michael Moore for this case study.
