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.

Governor Cuomo's Budget's Wrong! It's Tax the Rich and Feed the Poor, Not the Other Way Around! - 26:36  

Hey Gov. Cuomo Your Budget’s Wrong!
Frederick Floss, Executive Director, Fiscal Policy Institute 

When it comes to the state budget  Cuomo's approach is out of focus and falls far short in making the essential public investments to expand opportunities for the millions of New Yorkers in poverty or still struggling to pull away from the great recession of 2008-9. New York State has gone through six years of austerity and that has stretched the financial capacity of its municipalities, schools and agencies to the limit. This isn’t the time for large, multi-year tax cuts paid for with projected surpluses and substantial, unspecified out-year budget cuts.  We’ll shovel through the "budget" and uncover how the steep tax and spending cuts will seriously erode the state’s ability to invest in its people, communities and the infrastructure.
