Labor Radio Podcast Network’s Weekly Wednesday Livestream interviews labor leaders about current labor issues with rotating hosts made up of network members.

Guests for February 10th, 2021 of LRPN Livestream included Lori Wallach (Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch), Eric Gottwald (AFL-CIO Trade Specialist), Alejandro Villamar (Mexican Action Network Against Free Trade), and Rick Arnold (Canada’s Common Frontiers).

LRPN Hosts: Jacob Morrison (The Valley Labor Report) and Judy Ancel (The Heartland Labor Forum).

Topics Discussed:

  • Will the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement fix NAFTA?
  • Will it stop the drain of jobs from the US and Canada to Mexico?
  • Will Mexican workers finally get the same crummy labor rights as we have in the U.S?
  • What are the prospects for real North American labor solidarity to counter the corporate giants who move our jobs around like peas in a shell game?

Additional Credits: Produced by Chris Garlock (Union City Radio); Producer, engineer, and editor is Evan Matthew Papp (Empathy Media Lab).

About the Labor Radio Podcast Network

Launched in April 2020, the Labor Radio Podcast Network focuses on working class issues that are often overlooked in the corporate-controlled media. The goal of the network is to help raise the voices of working people and strengthen organized labor to demand and achieve better treatment from workplaces and elected officials.
