This thursday on the Adventures of the CoffeeBar Kid
Due to Wellington's worst storm 40+ years we missed out last week so this week (27/6/13) we interview historian and writer Mark Derby about his new book 'White Collar Radical: Dan Long and the rise of white collar unions'. This is a brilliant documentary of one of New Zealand's gentleman unionists. A man responsible for the success of New Zealand's largest union the PSA, and a leader credited with significant gains for Women in pay and equality in the work place. He's also the one behind the dress code for public servants: walk shorts, brown cardigans, socks and roman sandals! If you grew up surrounded by anti-unionist rhetoric of the Muldoon government in the 80's ten join us, from 7.30 tonight, for a slightly different history of New Zealand. See you then!
