Terra Verde - Connecting Food Justice, Community Resilience, and Worker Rights

Despite the fact that the Casino brings in over $200 million in revenue, the average Casino worker only earns $9.60/hour and hasn't received a raise in 4 years. While workers continue their struggle for fairness inside the casino, workers and neighbors are joining together to build community and reclaim their own health and labor.  On today's Terra Verde, talking about their recent collaboration in connecting food justice, community resilience and worker rights, are guests Isidoro Saravia Ramos, a North Richmond resident, musician, worker at the Casino San Pablo and member of UniteHERE 2850, Jessica Medina, an organizer with 2850, and Haleh Zandi, co-founder of Planting Justice. Hosted by Gopal Dayaneni

Missed opportunity. While

Missed opportunity. While today's show was professionally hosted and produced, it focused too much on flowery, feel-good talk. I was hoping to hear more specifics about the problems concerning working conditions at the casinos, proposed solutions for those problems, and efforts to organize to accomplish those goals. About 3 minutes of flowery, feel-good talk is ok, but the other 27 minutes should be devoted to serious discussion of serious issues.
