Tonight, we celebrate May Day, or International Worker’s Day!

  • We hear from Terry Valen and Lyle Prijoles with Filipino Community Center as well as Irma Shauf-Bajar with GABRIELA USA. They all make connections between immigrant rights and worker rights here in the U.S. and globally.
  • We speak with two home care workers from Asian Immigrant Women Advocates who share the unique challenges they face as immigrant domestic workers.
  • Diep Tran, head chef and owner of L.A. restaurant Good Girl Dinette tells us how “cheap eats” lists celebrate inexpensive immigrant foods at the expense of immigrant labor.
  • And we talk with Zuha Khan who curated an amazing line-up of performers at El Rio this Saturday as a fundraiser for Bay Area Solidarity Summer.
