3 months 2 weeks ago
Finally N.Y. States Farmworkers Prevail Over States Harvest of Shame with Jessica Ramos, N.Y.S Senator, Chair of Labor Committee and Jose Chapa, Justice for Farmworkers Legislative Campaign Coordinator, Rural & Migrant Ministry Well celebrate and the N.Y.S. Legislatures passage of progressive bills, with gains in such diverse areas as tenants rights, drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants and yes finally labor rights for N.Y. farmworkers. Advocates for farmworkers have been engaged in a decades-long fight for basic labor and human rights for farm workers since they were exempted from a 1938 federal labor reform law " relegating them to a habitual harvest of shame, and deprivation. "Today we are correcting a historic injustice, a remnant of Jim Crow era laws, to affirm that those farmworkers must be granted rights just as any other worker in New York, said Sen. Jessica Ramos (D-Queens). Under the new Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act farmworkers will now have the right to unionize and overtime pay as well as the guarantee of at least one day off per week. Under the new legislation, farmworkers are also eligible for unemployment insurance, paid family leave and workers compensation benefits.

Donald Drumpf Theatre: Donald Drumpf Theatre Vol. 129 Drain The Swamp, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
An original radio theatre show each week, with most sounds culled from the previous week, about a fictional, theatrical presidency. Contradictions tell the story, with songs, skits, and clips from political news shows and late-night comedy routines. The definition of "radio theatre" is stretched here, with an updated Dickie Goodman and/or Richard Foreman-meets-mashup style sometimes, and a more straightforward take other weeks. Currently airing on 30 or 40 stations around the world, the network has ordered another 15 episodes, but there are threats of cancellation. Anyone who would like to work on a production, or have their work air in this timeslot, should contact info@wgxc.org.
