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.

NYC's Mayor Bloomberg Provokes School Bus Strike - 27:10  

Mayor Bloomberg Provokes School Bus Strike, Hurting

Union busting is disgusting.  NYC's Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181, representing school bus drivers, escorts, and mechanics was forced onto picketlines to save its very existence, due to Mayor Bloomberg's insistence on removing Employee Protection Provisions from contract language affecting the 9,000 workers. This change would impact current and future union members, allow companies to low bid contractors due to cheap labor, and put 150,000 children’s lives in the hands of inexperienced drivers to navigate the hectic streets of NYC.  This is a lose lose situation for union members and parents and children!
