PRI's The World: 07/02/2015 Business leaders hate it; organized labor loves it. We're talking about President Obama's plan to make more workers eligible for overtime pay. So what do you think they would make of a plan by the Dutch city of Utrecht to guarantee everyone a minimum salary of $1,000 per month ? whether they work or not? Then, we revisit a Tunisian breakdancing troupe whose goal is to keep kids from being radicalized. The alleged shooter in last week's tourist resort attack in Tunisia had once belonged to a similar troupe ? so does this kind of thing work? Plus, we have to talk about last night's Women's World Cup match. The deciding goal that stopped England from proceeding to the final, was scored by an England player elegantly kicking the ball into the back of her own net. Ouch!
PRI's The World: 07/01/2015 We start today with a look at how Greeks in America are responding to the financial meltdown back in Athens. Then, in the Sinai Peninsula, ISIS militants attack Egyptian troops. Plus, the holy month of Ramadan means fasting, prayer, and a lot of TV. We channel surf with the BBC's Ramadan TV correspondent.
PRI's The World: 06/30/2015 A Greek comedian tells us why she thinks it's a great time to visit Greece, not despite her country's economic crisis but because of it! Plus, The Boston Gay Men's Chorus is just back from their Middle East Tour. The choir's music director speaks about their sell-out performance in Istanbul, where they also witnessed police break up a gay pride march with water cannons and rubber bullets. Also, a Louisiana public school attracts rich and poor, white and black, for its language immersion program. That's foreign language learning as equalizer.
