We Do The Work; Working History
Play • 44 min

“Learn Yourself” is part of “We Do The Work,” airing weekly on Skagit Valley Community Radio KSVR. Today we hear about LELO, formerly known as the Northwest Labor and Employment Law Office, and founded in Seattle, Washington in 1972 when Black, Asian and Latino workers came together to work for racial and economic justice. Ismael García Colón discusses his new book, “Colonial Migrants at the Heart of Empire,” about Puerto Rican migrant farmworkers and their labor experiences in the post-World War II United States, on the Working History podcast. Plus we preview the re-broadcast of the IAM’s 1950 “Boomer Jones” radio show and on this week’s Labor History in 2: Jane Addams is born. Produced by Chris Garlock; edited by Patrick Dixon.
