Turning the Tables - The Gig Podcast - Season 2 Episode 5

January 24, 2022

We continue to explore ways in which if advocates and workers themselves are part of the design and control of platforms, big data may open up new opportunities for vulnerable workers who have long been isolated and exploited.

Guests:  Palak Shah, NDWA Labs; Fairuz Mullagee, University of Western Cape/Social Law Project; Abigail Hunt, Overseas Development Institute

About

The Gig is about the women and men who work in the so-called 'gig economy' worldwide. They find work through online platforms, and will tell us why we all need to be concerned about the real future of work.

Following The Gig Podcast’s successful launch of Season 1, host and executive producer Bama Athreya is back with Season 2 focusing on gig workers in the care economy.

For Season 2, The Gig Podcast is partnering with fellow Labor Radio Podcast Network member Evan Papp of Empathy Media Lab to support the production of the new series.

January 18, 2022

We go to India and Thailand to talk about intimate personal care services that take place in people's homes. Advocates and researchers explain how technology is affecting personal care workers who are already low wage, precarious and exploited. Clients expect 'emotional labor' from these women but there are big risks of gender-based violence that platforms may exacerbate.

Guests:  Kriangsak Teerawitkajorn, Just Economy and Labour Institute (JELI); Khawla Zainab, IT for Change

The Labor Link - Tola Moeun, Executive Director of the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights in Cambodia

“Talking about the human rights situation in Cambodia, we believe that the democratic shrinking space is the main root cause that is undermining labor rights and human rights.”

Tola Moeun

 

About 

Tola Moeun is a human rights defender and the Executive Director of the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights (CENTRAL), an NGO which supports Cambodian labourers by providing them with legal aid, and other appropriate means, to demand transparent and accountable governance on labour and human rights issues.

The Cambodian authorities often use legislation and the judicial system to restrict free speech, jail government critics, and disperse workers, trade union representatives and farmers when engaging in peaceful assembly. The 2015 Law on Associations and Non-Governmental Organizations imposes a range of restrictions on both domestic and foreign NGOs. Despite the danger, Tola continues to fight for labor rights.

November 18, 2021

We are excited to share Radio Labour’s excerpt, “Fighting for Thailand's Migrant Workers,” that covered The Labor Link’s podcast interview with Sawit Kaewwan

Summary:

Millions of migrant workers in Thailand need help. The Thai labour movement is fighting for their rights. An interview with Sawit Kaewwan, the secretary general of the State Enterprises Workers’ Relations Confederation (SERC) conducted by Judy Gearhart of American University’s Accountability Research Center.

The Labor Link - Sawit Kaewwan, the secretary general of the State Enterprises Workers’ Relations Confederation (SERC) in Thailand

November 7, 2021

“There will be no way for us to be able to solve every single problem of migrant workers here in Thailand. The only way we can do it, we need to have them to speak up about the problem. We need to have them form their own organization, representing themselves.”

Sawit Kaewwan 

About Sawit Kaewwan

Sawit Kaewwan, the secretary general of the State Enterprises Workers’ Relations Confederation (SERC) in Thailand, has mobilized the Thai trade union movement to support migrant workers, especially those at risk for human trafficking.

The unions have offered repeatedly to collaborate with industry and government. Instead, the government is pursuing criminal charges against Sawit and 12 of his colleagues for organizing a national railway safety campaign they launched back in 2009. The charges appear politically motivated because they were filed in 2019 just before the statute of limitations expired. Thailand’s National Human Rights Commission has condemned the actions against the trade unionists.

178. Economic Justice For All - Faith and Labor (Episode 5)

178. Economic Justice For All - Faith and Labor (Episode 5)

October 22, 2021

In Episode 5, we discuss Economic Justice for All, which is the pastoral letter promulgated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in 1986. The letter addresses the precarity of Americans living within the U.S. economy and is framed by the values of Catholic social teaching and thus condemning the neoliberal policies under President Ronald Reagan. 

We also discuss America Magazine’s article titled America’s child care crisis and Catholic social teaching by Kate Ward.

Faith and Labor is a podcast video series exploring the history of Catholic Social Teachings and how it can be used to bridge divisions and guide humanity to solve the great challenges facing the working class.

Hosted by John Andrechak of Laborlines and Evan Matthew Papp of Empathy Media Lab, they discuss history, scripture, encyclicals, current events, and how faith and love is needed to strengthen solidarity and heal a world in disarray. 

We would love to hear your feedback, ideas, and suggested guests for future shows, as we seek to promote what Pope Francis described in Fratelli Tutti as a more just and fraternal world where “Love shatters the chains that keep us isolated and separate; in their place, it builds bridges.”

177. Mother Jones in West Virginia Coal Fields Making Speeches to Excite Miners

177. Mother Jones in West Virginia Coal Fields Making Speeches to Excite Miners

October 13, 2021

On June 20, 1920, Mother Jones spoke on the steps of the Williamson County Courthouse in West Virginia as a grand jury deliberated on the shooting between mine of Matewan, West Virginia and the Baldwin-Felts detectives who were terrorizing the people in the service of the Stone Mountain Coal Company to increase the profits of plutocrats like Rockefeller, Carnegie, Morgan, and Mellon, and against the United Mine Workers of America driving unionization throughout the land.

The Associated Press wrote the next day “Mother Jones” in West Virginia Coal Fields Making Speeches to Excite Miners.

EMLab filmed Kaiulani Lee’s reenactment of Mother Jones famous speech in Matewan, West Virginia during U.S. Labor Day weekend 2021, which marked the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain, which was part of the West Virginia Mine Wars. The battle was the largest armed insurrection in the U.S. since the Civil War. The sacrifices of those miners and their families provides an important history of courageously standing up and facing tyrannical men of murderous intent.

176. Voices from the Centennial March to Blair Mountain - Organized by the United Mine Workers of America

176. Voices from the Centennial March to Blair Mountain - Organized by the United Mine Workers of America

September 9, 2021

So why did we want to recreate this March? Because we are bound and determined that the history of our forefathers will not be taken away from us by any rich person or any government.

Cecil Roberts, President of the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA)

One hundred years ago, in a rural mountainous stretch in middle America, a violent labor uprising took place, a battle of good versus evil, rebellion against wage slavery, a fight for freedom against tyranny -- yet this historical memory lies dormant in most minds today.

U.S. Labor Day weekend 2021 marked the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain, which was part of the West Virginia Mine Wars. The battle was the largest armed insurrection in the U.S. since the Civil War. The sacrifices of those miners and their families provides an important history of courageously standing up and facing tyrannical men of murderous intent.

When I learned about the centennial gathering in remembrance of the great battle of Blair Mountain in West Virginia over Labor Day 2021, I knew I had to go; not just to document the event and raise awareness through the Labor Radio Podcast Network, but I needed to go for myself, as a labor pilgrimage to march alongside the United Mine Workers of America, upon the hallowed ground where miners fought for their rights and a better future for every worker.

During the United Mine Workers of America’s reenactment of the famous march that ended in Sharples, West Virginia near Blair Mountain, I was able to interview fellow marchers and capture a rousing speech by Cecil Roberts, President of the United Mine Workers of America.

Solidarity forever.

175. Remembering 1921: The Battle of Blair Mountain - David Rovics Audio Essay

September 2, 2021

There is another America.  Remember it.  Those miners died for you.  You should at least know who they were.  And then let's all follow in their footsteps.  Long live the multiracial uprising in the hills of Appalachia in 1921.  Long live the Battle of Blair Mountain.David Rovics

U.S. Labor Day weekend 2021 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain, which was part of the West Virginia Mine Wars

The battle was the largest armed insurrection in the U.S. since the Civil War. The sacrifices of those miners and their families who fought on Blair Mountain laid down a foundation to fight for every worker’s labor rights and protection and courageously stand up and face tyrannical men of murderous intent.

Empathy Media Lab will be in West Virginia documenting the Battle of Blair Mountain Centennial Commemoration, including the United Mine Workers of America’s reenactment of the famous march that ended in the 1921 Battle of Blair Mountain.

This short film is based on an audio essay by David Rovics and the song Sixteen Tons by Merle Travis.

August 26, 2021
"To his dying day, he never relented fighting his disease because he was a fighter and one of the strongest people I have ever met. He lives on in my brother and I."
 
This eulogy from my brother and I was delivered in April 2018, shortly after his passing.
 
Without him, I am nothing. With his love, I am everything.
Thus I celebrate his birth on this day, August 26th.

172. Richard Trumka Tribute - American System TV

172. Richard Trumka Tribute - American System TV

August 17, 2021

“...of the leaders of the AFL-CIO since the second world war, Trumka has been one of the very best and that doesn't translate automatically into success or organizing or even winning huge strikes partly because the Carter spirit has been powerful in the democratic party and there's a lack of understanding why you need organized labor.”

Richard Louis Trumka was President of the AFL–CIO from 2009 until his death on August 5, 2021. He served as president of the United Mine Workers from 1982 to 1995, and then was secretary-general of the AFL-CIO from 1995 to 2009. 

The American System network gave a tribute to Trumka on their August 5th program while highlighting the failure of the Democratic Party to sufficiently support organized labor. This segment was produced by Empathy Media Lab.

Faith and Labor is a podcast video series exploring the history of Catholic Social Teachings and how it can be used to bridge divisions and guide humanity to solve the great challenges facing the working class.
