Workers at a door and window company in Chicago were recent victorious in a sit-down action. Old Mole Denise Morris reads from a piece by Christopher Phelps and Nelson Lichtenstein about the history of such actions. You can find the online version here.
Two organizers of the Chicago sit-in talk with the Old Mole's Laurie Mercier about their victory, what it means, and how the union works. They are Leah Fried, a field reppresentative for the United Electrical Workers; and Rickie Macklin, union member and worker at the factory.
Tim Shorrock, investigative journalist and labor activist who often writes for the Nation, talks with Bill Resnick about hopes and possibilities for a new foreign policy under the Obama administration. Bill follows up with his own list of what progressives should be working for.
Bill Resnick hosts this program with a focus on movement struggles for the rights of workers and for a sane US foreign policy. The show also features the music (abbreviated for the web) of Dead Prez.
