Two Sacred Cows: farming and unionism

program date: 
Mon, 03/28/2011

We replay a rousing speech given by Tony Schultz, a dairy farmer in Wisconsin, where he explain how unionism and agrarian culture share the same values.

 

After that Bill talks with Monica Adams an activist also in Wisconsin who works with Freedom Inc. They talk about the origins of the uprising in Wisconsin and Freedom Inc's involvement. Monica paints a portrait of a working-class struggle that precedes Scott Walker's sensational union-busting, but concludes questioning the unity of the public's interest in economic fairness and participatory budgeting.

Free Versus Fair Trade, a Two Hour Special

Local, national, and international guests share the perspective of working people, as three more free trade agreements head to Congress:

  • Korea, the biggest volume deal since NAFTA
  • Colombia, where more unionists are killed than in the rest of the world combined and whose number of displaced persons is rivaled only by Sudan, and
  • Panama, the country with financial regulation so lax an intern could set up a fake corporation in minutes, over the phone.

Hear the voices of need before greed and support Portland’s Community Radio Station, KBOO, during Spring Membership Drive.

Co-hosted by Bill Zimmerman and John Walsh.

Wisconsin Uprising

program date: 
Wed, 03/16/2011
Wisconsin is again at the center of a fight for labor and collective bargaining rights. We did most of these interviews last week, just as the news broke that collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin had been all but eliminated for public workers. This came after three weeks of massive protests in Madison and less publicized protests across the state that inspired social justice activists nationally and internationally.
Tonight on Circle A Radio we speak with Ken Germanson, former President of the Wisconsin Labor History Society. We also have interviews with Margaret Shannon, Natalie Tsoris, and Lauryl Sulfate, all of Wisconsin, all opposed to the union-busting Budget Repair Bill proposed in the Wisconsin State Senate in February 2011.
