San Diego is one of 200 cities with day-long mobilizations. In San Diego fast food workers will be striking for higher wages and the right to unionization. Students will be mobilizing for union rights and $15 an hour for campus jobs and Adjunct college teachers will join them to rally for equitable wages.
San Diego's Community Radio KNSJ 89.1 FM is taking the unparalleled step of providing four hours of on-location broadcast coverage as the events unfold from 2 to 6 PM. The daylong event in San Diego is one of the most ambitious mobilizations by labor unions in recent memory. A series of buses will take workers and supporters from location to location, from fast food restaurants, to city college, to support of domestic workers, to community rally in City Heights and end the day at San Diego State University with a final assembly for higher wages and union representation on campus.
Interactive Participation LIVE:
"The intent is not to have the radio substitute for participation in this unprecedented campaign"... stated Martin Eder, Interim General Manager of KNSJ..." but rather to give news context and information as the events unfold for those people unable to be there physically".
Volunteer driven KNSJ will follow the events on Wednesday afternoon as the actions bare down on City Heights then board the buses on their way to the grand finale at SDSU. Four hours of live programming on location for a news event or labor event is virtually unknown in the broadcast industry, especially in San Diego. KNSJ believes that the national and local campaigns are of such significance that thousands of people will potentially interested in listening in -- until such time as they can get off work to participate in the streets.
