One of the featured writers for The Nation Magazine, was one of the two featured guests on America’s Work Force Radio.
On Oct. 18, The Nation Magazine featured writer Jamie Lincoln Kitman was on the show to talk about his latest article called “Worse than Lead?”, which discusses corporate America poisoning people with lead in gasoline and fire retardants. The article goes into detail about why we started using lead in gasoline and in fire retardants. The reason for wanting to put lead in gasoline was to raise the fuel’s octane level and reduces engine “knock”, but was later discovered that lead in the gasoline wreaked havoc on the engine and was soon to be phased out. He then discusses what corporations did next; sell gasoline with unprecedented amounts of lead in it to third-world countries.
Our second featured guest was Patricia Cartwright with Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW). Cartwright joined us to talk about what CLUW is all about, building a bridge between all women in viable organizations and about the upcoming election. She also discusses the plan or a march to the polls next Wednesday to encourage people to get up and go out and vote.
Show host Ed “Flash” Ferenc also discussed the steel workers still have not negotiated a new contract since their last one expired in September, the Center for American Progress, and members of congress and voting on health care protections with pre-existing conditions.
