This week's guests:
(in-studio) BRUCE JETT, Organizing Consultant with the Washington-Baltimore News Guild, on recent organizing wins and the ongoing challenges of organizing workers.
JONATHAN ROSENBLUM, author of “Beyond $15: Immigrant Workers, Faith Activists, and the Revival of the Labor Movement.” Jonathan will discuss his new book next Thursday at the Takoma Busboys and Poets from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
Readers interested in labor activism, history, economics, industrial relations, or immigration studies will find this book to be compelling and captivating, as Rosenblum captures the story of this unifying, important, and successful fight for economic equity. This event is co-sponsored by Bread & Roses.
