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.
