Bread + Roses

Bread + Roses is a podcast where we explore different areas of work and how they affect health. We find work and workers fascinating and want to demystify 'work' and build connections between different types of workers because we are all dealing with a lot of the same issues and can unite in our fight for fair wages, healthy working lives, and happy home lives.

The term “Bread and Roses” is a union slogan used during the 1912 textile strike by Helen Todd who said they were striking for their bread, but they wanted roses too, meaning they were fighting for a living wage and dignified working conditions which allowed them to live good lives in and outsides of their work.
