When we talk about labor organizing these days, we rarely talk about farm workers, who have been left in the dust in wages working conditions and rights. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum we’ll talk to Farmworker Justice and Missouri Legal Aid about conditions and remedies. Then, Erika Smiley, executive director of national Jobs with Justice has a new book called The Future We Need. She’ll be here to talk about what bargaining and organizing could look like for organized labor in coming years and how unions could change. Also, Washington Window with Mark Gruenberg.
