Show Notes

On this month's episode of The Voice of Oregon's Workers, we discuss the recent fight over the city of Portland's budget cuts to the Parks and Recreation Bureau.

We sit down with an organizer and member leaders from Laborers' Local 483 who detail the recent campaign to defend key services that Portlanders depend on, and the important jobs that make the city work. Although these budget cuts were passed, this fight for fairness and key public services continues.
