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 Municipal Workers Demand Fair Contracts -28'  

NYC Municipal Workers Starved Under Bloomberg Send Message to Mayoral Candidates They Demand Fair Contracts

Thousands of N.Y.C. municipal employees, including health care, education, sanitation, transit, communication, and public housing workers – the diverse category workers who make this city run, filled City Hall Park demanding new labor contracts. NYC’s more than 300,000 employees have spent up to four years working under expired union contracts, without any wage increase to keep
pace with inflation, while Mayor Bloomberg contends salary
increases, and retroactive pay would blow a massive hole in the city’s budget. Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s predicted budget deficits each year have actually ended with billions in surpluses, and he continues to give billions in contracts to high-priced consultants and outside contractors, some of whom have been marked by fraud and incompetence. So, now municipal workers demand a new deal from a new Mayor in the new year.
