The lives and concerns of working men and women will be focus of a special showcase of programming on CAN TV21, Labor Day, Monday, September 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The programs have all been produced or submitted by Chicago based organizations with a focus on labor concerns conveyed through discussion, debate, poetry, drama, and events coverage. Four timely half-hour "Labor Beat" programs were produced by the Committee for Labor Access.

CAN TV’s Greg Boozell says, “The concerns of working families are largely misrepresented or ignored by commercial television. CAN TV provides a unique outlet to address the concerns of labor unions and the working class. We are proud to provide this showcase of labor programs to celebrate Labor Day.”

Included in the showcase are some of the following programs:

9:00 a.m. Women of Heart and Steel – a play showcasing how 3 working women fought for justice and human rights

11:00 a.m. The Labor Strike – Stephen Franklin of The Chicago Tribune questions how effective labor strikes are as an economic weapon against big business.
