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.

Largest Strike Ever of Fast Food Workers Echoes
MLK’s Last Campaign For Striking Memphis Workers

Across New York City hundreds of fast food workers walked off their jobs. It was the second strike in their ongoing Fast Food Forward
campaign for higher wages and union recognition.  The strikers day culminated in a march with supporters in Harlem, where many strikers carried signs that read “I Am A Woman”.  The signs, and strike, which was held on the anniversary of the assassination of MLK in Memphis, echoed his support for striking sanitation workers' call for workplace rights and racial justice.
