This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we talk to two authors about books on working class women. Emily Twarog’s new book, Politics of the Pantry: Housewives, Food and Consumer Activism in the 20th Century, takes us back to a time when housewives organized to protest the high cost of food. Sarah Adler-Milstein writes about Sewing Hope, a garment factory in the Dominican Republic, which shows that it’s possible to produce clothing and say no to sweatshops. This factory pays a living wage, has a strong union, and maintains good health and safety standards. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
