Air America Radio and American Rights at Work, an excellent group advocating for the worker's rights on the job, are launching a new radio show that sounds terrific:
Workin' It is a new weekly, one-hour radio show on Air America Radio focusing on working life in America. Hosted by comedienne, author, and former union organizer Jackie Guerra, the lively magazine program provides a break from the daily grind to make you think, laugh, and do something about the declining state of workers' rights. Premiering Saturday, April 22, Workin' It is produced in partnership with American Rights at Work.
And you won't want to miss the first show-featuring interviews with award-winning actor and activist Danny Glover and Senator John Edwards, a look at the Hotel Workers' Rising campaign, a commentary from former Congressman David Bonior, and more!

Let's hope this show makes it onto the Southern airwaves, where violations of worker's rights are rampant and contribute to the low union presence in the region.
