Love, Justice, Family & Equality
with
Emily Hecht-McGowan, Family Equality Council

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in two potentially landmark cases: the challenge to Proposition 8, which took away the freedom to marry from same-sex couples in California, and the challenge to Section 3 of the misnamed "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA), which denies legally married same-sex couples over 1,000 rights, protections and also responsibilities under federal law simply because they are gay. Never before has the court heard two significant gay rights cases simultaneously. Emily Hecht-McGowan, Director of Public Policy for the Family Equality Council joins us to look at these two cases which could be a defining moment in the LGBT community's decades- long struggle for equality under the law.

No Justice, No Pizza - Domino's Beware!
with
The Justice Will Be Served Campaign

Pizza workers and supporters rallied against their employer Domino's over years of unpaid wages and retaliation experienced when they stood up for their rights. During the rally they celebrated their first of its kind court ruling permitting them to sue Domino's Pizza Corp. as a joint employer along with the individual franchise holder, which would also apply to other fast food workers in establishments like McDonald's and retail workers at places like Walmarts. The right of the Latino, African and Bangladeshi workers to proceed with the suit they filed in 2010 against Domino's Pizza's franchise owner David Melton and the Domino's Corp. is a huge victory. The workers had commenced suit after receiving below the minimum wage, were forced to make deliveries during extreme weather conditions, and didn't have a place to take a break or eat during their excessively long work hours.
