Heartland Labor Forum (Repeat)

Heartland Labor Forum is Kansas City’s only program about the workplace. It is produced by and for our working people. We have been agitating on the air since 1989. Find out who is busting unions and who is fighting back. Hear the voices and inspiration of troublemakers in the workplace and in the global economy. Listen to our monthly features: Know Your Rights, Safety First, Economics Unmasked, and Common Good. Find out who won this month’s Boss Hog award. Heartland Labor Forum has won the International Labor Communications Award several times. This year we won two awards.

For more information on upcoming shows, our weekly calendar, or to listen to an archived show, go to http://www.heartlandlaborforum.org
