Second Episode of Labor Archives of Washington’s New Radio Segment Airs

The second episode of the Labor Archives of Washington’s monthly labor history segment on the radio show “We Do the Work” (KSVR 91.7 FM, Mount Vernon)  aired on January 5, 2016 on KSVR. Soon, it will become a part of KSVR’s streaming audio archives. http://www.ksvr.org/archives_wtdw.html (This post will be updated when the stream is added to the online archive)

The episode covered the 1981 murder of Filipino American cannery worker union leaders Silme Domingo and Gene Viernes, who were assassinated in Seattle’s Pioneer Square in their union hall, and the collections in the Labor Archives relating to that history.

The new feature is called “Learn Yourself,” and it will cover a particular labor history topic and introduce new users to resources for further reading and research, including the Labor Archives of Washington’s collections.

The first episode, about the Everett Massacre of 1916 and the Industrial Workers of the World in the Pacific Northwest, is available for streaming now.

“We Do the Work” host Michael Dumovich and producer/organizer Janet McKinney invited Casey to record the regular feature after his first appearance on their show in July. The show is broadcast from Mount Vernon, Washington and is being broadcast by other public radio affiliates nationwide. It is also available via Public Radio Exchange (PRX): an online marketplace for distribution, review, and licensing of public radio programming.

WE DO THE WORK is dedicated to the well-being of all workers, union and non-union alike. The program believes that everyone who toils for wages or salaries, or who would if they could find a job, deserves to be treated fairly and have the opportunity to live in economic security. With the drastic increase in inequality over the last thirty years, fair treatment and economic security have become more mirage than reality to millions of workers.

Listen to We Do The Work Tuesdays, 6:30 pm, at KSVR, 91.7 FM, or Tuesdays, 6:30 pm and Fridays, 8:30 am, at KSVU, 90.1 FM or KSJU, 91.9 FM
