Labor Radio March 2017

In Labor Radio by Mark Gevaart

Welcome to another edition of Labor Radio. Done once a month at the WELT 95.7FM Studios in the Allen County Public Library Fort Wayne Indiana, this show originally airs on the Community Access Radio channel Mondays from 6-7:00pm on WELT.

This show has some opening commentary from host Mark Gevaart and interviews with two people about their working life. This month we have two ends of the work life spectrum. Our first guest is Mike Rankert from Kokomo Indiana, he is a Retiree from Chrysler Kokomo and is a UAW Local 685 member. Our second guest is Stephen Ahmad, who is 30 years younger than Mike. He works for Thomas Bus Co in High Point North Carolina as a member of UAW Local 5287. Both of our guests have unique stories about their working life. Despite the difference in age, both share a membership in a Union. That membership provides them a collective bargaining agreement that protects their Health & Safety, Wages and Benefits while they work.
