Seven radio employees of MBS Radio are seeking a fair deal. They’ve been on strike for a year because they rejected an offer that would have meant $12.98 an hour at most — just slightly more than minimum wage. If that last offer was accepted, these skilled radio employees would be making an average of just under $24K a year. The provincial average for radio employees in New Brunswick is $40K a year. This is a fight for respect — and the hope of a middle class wage. It is also a fight for real jobs in the very transient commercial radio sector of the media industry.
