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.

Hey Governor Cuomo, We Need a Real Minimum Wage Now! - 28:55  

Hey Governor Cuomo, We Need a Real Minimum Wage Now!
Assembly member Linda Rosenthal
Senator Jose Peralta
The Coalition for a Real Minimum-Wage Increase

The new minimum wage bill will not be indexed to inflation, instead Governor Cuomo’s wage bill raises the minimum wage to only $9 an hour in three years - too little, too late.  We need a real minimum wage increase that lifts people out of poverty and enables them to adequately support their families.  Governor Cuomo’s minimum wage law also excludes hundreds of thousands of tipped workers from receiving an increase and fails to allocate any resources for 
labor-law enforcement to investigate workers’ complaints of employers’ rampant violations of an failure to pay the minimum wage.  The Coalition for a Real Minimum Wage Increase is campaigning for a real minimum wage and to strengthen minimum wage law and its enforcement.
