Listen Download | podcast

Despite the fact that the Casino brings in over $200 million in revenue, the average Casino worker only earns $9.60/hour and hasn’t received a raise in 4 years. While workers continue their struggle for fairness inside the casino, workers and neighbors are joining together to build community and reclaim their own health and labor.  On today’s Terra Verde, talking about their recent collaboration in connecting food justice, community resilience and worker rights, are guests Isidoro Saravia Ramos, a North Richmond resident, musician, worker at the Casino San Pablo and member of UniteHERE 2850, Jessica Medina, an organizer with 2850, and Haleh Zandi, co-founder of Planting Justice.
