Labor Radio-Podcast Weekly

Labor Express Radio; En Masse; Talking SMART; Workers Beat & UCOMM Live

May 23, 2020

“You know, I'm not just the epithet that they give me, we shape history every day and collective actions here could shape history in a new way.” Cristobal Cavazos of Immigrant Solidarity DuPage on Labor Express Radio, Chicago's only English-language labor news and current affairs radio program.

“My Pietro. He worked in the sheds for 15 years. Always he was not satisfied. Always, he said someday he would find other work. But no other work he found.” That’s from the latest episode of En Masse, where interdisciplinary artist, labor activist, and political educator Liz Medina brings together oral histories and social theory with stories of struggle and hope from the working class.

Plus, Sheet Metal sisters share their stories on Talking SMART, Workers Beat votes by mail, UCOMM LIVE reports on unemployment claims in New Jersey and, on Labor History in 2:00, Chicago’s first teachers’ strike. 
Bonus: The Labor Radio-Podcast Network's first PSA, from the My Labor Radio podcast!
