This is the full 5-9-11 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.

As promised, on today’s program we’ll bring you audio from the multiple celebrations of May Day 2011, but that will be later in the program.

First up we’ll hear about last month’s employment figures from the Department of Labor and we'll get Jobs With Justice’s reaction to those numbers.

We will hear about the plan to "re-invent" Chicago’s City Colleges and why faculty and students of the City Colleges are opposing the so called “reinvention plan”.

And we will hear from Mark Brenner of Labor Notes about the troublemakers school planned for Chicago on May 21st.
