Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up today weâ€™ll talk with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers about their effort to raise the wages of the people who harvest tomatoes here in Florida.
But first, Bud Chiles is one of the sons of former Governor Lawton Chiles and heâ€™s walking across the state in an effort to highlight how far the state is behind in meeting the basic education needs of its citizens. He calls the campaign 'Worst To First'. He's walking 600 miles across Florida to talk with ordinary people about Florida's dismal score on many education, health care, and social service rankings.
