Despite today’s news of more than 300,000 new jobs added to the U.S. economy, millions of low-wage American workers continue to struggle to make ends meet. Yesterday, fast food workers demonstrated across the nation in an effort to unionize and increase their pay.

We’ll talk about the plight of America’s low-wage workers with our guests. Also, we’ll talk to Bishop Steven Smith, executive director of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition Public Policy Institute and Media and Telecommunications Project, about the group’s symposium focusing on the future of civil rights. All coming up this evening on AFRO’s First Edition with Sean Yoes.
