The Only Daily Podcast that Gives Working People a Voice



About AWF Union Podcast

From its humble beginnings in the early 1990s, America’s Work Force started as an AM radio production, produced in the Cleveland WERE studios. Over the years the show also aired on a variety of other radio stations via syndication, but the show’s focus remained consistent: To promote the voice of America’s working people.

America’s Work Force Union Podcast is the only daily labor podcast in America.

Seeing the need to expand from traditional radio, AWF made the transition to becoming not only a radio show, but a daily podcast. This switch allows its pro-union, pro-labor message to reach a larger audience.

At the heart of America’s Work Force is its electric guest list

Unions are the backbone of the middle class and the foundation of the American Dream, and America’s Work Force gives them a voice. Each daily episode features a variety of guests, each with their own connection to America’s Unions or the pro-labor movement. They are able to share their stories and provide insight – from the D.C. beltway to all across the U.S. in the trenches of an ongoing fight for the right to collectively bargain and promote workers rights.
