1/7 WorkWeek Radio Show-Texas Protest At Volero, Mi Pueblo Workers, Emancipation Proclamation & CNA RN Kay McVay On The CNA-NUHW affiliation.
WorkWeek goes to Houston Texas and interviews environmental activist and injured worker advocate Diane Wilson. Wilson has been on a hunger strike along with others to stop the Volero oil company from bringing tar sands to Texas to process at their refinery.
Next we will look at the struggle of the 30 Northern California Mi Pueblo food store workers who are fighting for justice including San Jose and Oakland. These immigrant workers face the ICE and the owners as they fight or justice. Next we interview past CNA president Kay McVay about the recent affiliation of the CNA and NUHW and threats that healthcare workers and nurses face.
This is also the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln and we will look at the relevance of that anniversary for working people today. Professor Eric Foner who is a important historian on the civil war and the labor and black struggle talks about the lessons of the Proclamation Emancipation and what it means for working people today. He is also the author of the important book "The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery".
We will also have our WorkWeek calendar.
