Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report National Edition - 27:52 Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg **************************** Social Security Under Attack With Eric Kingson, Prof. of Social Work, Syracuse Universityâs School of Social Work & Co-Dir., Social Security Works
Itâs the Social Security program, which in large part keeps older people from poverty and destitution. But, the program is under attack from the Simpson-Bowles deficit reduction Commission established by the President, The attack is dressed up in the fallacious rhetoric of the necessity of deficit reduction, itâs really a raid on the social security trust fund to help balance the federal budget deficit. They will call for deep benefit cuts, probably in the form of another rise in the retirement age. ********************** 2nd Jury Nullification in Tyson Discrimination Suit With U. W. Clemon, Alabama's first African-American Federal judge, who also served as chief judge of the U,S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. Before his notable career on the federal bench, he was a distinguished civil rights activist, a lawyer, and state senator.
For the second time a federal appeals court panel rejected jury awards in favor of African-American plaintiffs who alleged discrimination against the poultry company Tyson Foods. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit found that a Tyson manager's use of the word "boy" to address an African-American man, did not amount to evidence of racial discrimination. ************************* please notify Building Bridges if you are broadcasting our National Edition.
