Building Bridges: Knocking on Labors Door- Union Organizing in the 1970s

Knocking on Labors Door
Union Organizing in the 1970s and the Roots of a New Economic Divide
Lane Windham, author, Knocking on Labors Door; Associate Director of Georgetown Universitys Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor and co-director of WILL Empower (Women Innovating Labor Leadership)

The power of unions in workers lives and in the American political system has declined dramatically since the 1970s. In recent years, many have argued that the crisis took root when unions stopped reaching out to workers and workers turned away from unions. But Lane Windham tells a different story. Highlighting the integral, often-overlooked contributions of women, people of color, young workers, and southerners, Windham reveals how in the 1970s workers combined old working-class tools--like unions and labor law--with legislative gains from the civil and womens rights movements to help shore up their prospects.

Through close-up studies of workers' campaigns in shipbuilding, textiles, retail, and service, Windham overturns widely held myths about labors decline, showing instead how employers united to manipulate weak labor law and quash a new wave of worker organizing. Recounting how employees attempted to unionize against overwhelming odds, Knocking on Labor's Door dramatically refashions the narrative of working-class
struggle during a crucial decade and shakes up current debates about labor's future.

Hosted by Mike Roots, “Reggae Explorations” on Wednesdays from 1:00p to 3:00 PM, is WAPJ’s longest running show, having its start (as “Positive Vibrations”) at the station’s inception in March of 1997.

On “Reggae Explorations” you’ll hear a mix of tracks from newer and lesser known artists, classic tunes, and deeper cuts than you would normally hear elsewhere. In addition, you’ll be treated to the “Motherland Track of the Week”, an occasional “Lovers Rock Set”, and even selections from off-the-beaten-path.

Mike Roots is a reggae artist and reviewer, and brings an inside perspective with interesting facts to enhance the listening experience. Tune in to “Reggae Explorations” for your weekly excursion into the world of strictly conscious, roots and culture, reggae music.

In another Spoken Word dispatch, FWR host @TheAngryindian speaks on the little-addressed political flip-flop many DACA-recipients – certainly not all – have decided to employ when it comes to (specific) political support for the Trump Administration and MAGA, in general, despite its anti-Immigrant; anti-immigrant; pro-White Supremacist; far-rightist sociopolitical and anti-Spanish-speaking Indigenous American economic policies. Reflecting on personal anecdotes and more than three decades of political activism, the host asks (sincerely) if Indigenous and Afro-Americans are prepared to put their revolutionary fervour (again) behind politically assisting (another) oppressed demographic that – to some degree – might be willing to take side(s) with White Power in the United States – provided – that Latin immigrants are allowed to remain in the USA and prosper, collectively, as a group. Afro-Americans have always supported other ethnic minorities in North America while historically, American Africans have NOT received substantial sociopolitical reciprocal support for liberation initiatives moves that DO NOT directly benefit other oppressed peoples in the country.

EXTRAS: ‘Bash The Fash’ by anti-fascist heroes Oi Polloi and an archived NOI address by Bro. Jeremiah Muhammad recalling an attempt by the Black Muslim organisation’s desire to develop a working understanding with the Ku Klux Klan finish off the programme.

All this and much more on, 4WR.

Global Research News Hour: Downfall of an Icon: Aung San Suu Kyi, the Rohingyas, and...

Date Uploaded: 2017-09-22 11:19:43.0
This week's Global Research News Hour inspects the international outrage expressed over the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, and the apparent indifference of the previously venerated pro-democracy champion, Aung San Suu Kyi.
In the first half hour, writer and broadcaster Stephen Lendman shares his thoughts about the misportrayal of Aung San Suu Kyi as a pro-democracy icon. He has written two articles recently lamenting the plight of the Rohingyan people.
In the second half hour, Mint Press News contributor Whitney Webb makes her debut. SHe is the author of a recent article: "Oil, Gas, Geopolitics Guide US Hand In Playing The Rohingya Crisis." She puts the situation in a geopolitical context, acknowledging that breaking up alliances with China is most likely a bigger factor in the visible criticism of the Nobel Peace Prize winner, than humanitarian sentiment.
