On Labor Day Eve, JOR will be honoring the relationship between the advancement of women and the Labor movement. We’ll be playing lots of great music about women and work (see blow for playlist), talking about women in the Labor Movement and looking at the current issues women workers face.
We’ll also have an interview with Anne Hedgepeth, Vice President for Public Policy and Government Relations at American Association of University Women (AAUW)–about this week’s move by Donald Trump to make it harder to address the gender pay gap.
Trump has just revoked an Obama-era provision mandating collection of data on employee salaries, and tracking salaries in relation to race and sex. Nixing this provision will make it harder to end pay discrimination, because if you don’t have the facts, you can’t solve the problem–or even prove that it exists!
At the beginning of the show we will present our International Feminist News Segment.
The music playlist will include:
We Were There (written by Bev Grant; sung by Bev Grant and the Brooklyn Women’s Chorus
9 to 5 (sung by Dolly Parton)
Bread and Roses (sung by Joan Baez and Mimi Farina)
Union Maid (sung by Billy Bragg band)
Bread and Roses (sung by Judy Gorman)
