Miami Beach Minimum Wage, Trump's Role In Venezuela, Israeli Baseball Team Film & GRAMMY Trumpeter

Feb 6, 2019

The Florida Supreme Court recently stopped Miami Beach’s effort to increase the city’s minimum wage to $13.31 by 2021. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine originally proposed the law in 2016, but the court put a halt saying that Florida law prohibits municipalities from setting their own wages. WLRN’s Daniel Rivero spoke to Luis Hernandez on Sundial about what this means.

In President Trump’s State of the Union Address last night, he spoke at length about his administration’s immigration plan and responding to the crisis in Venezuela. For POLITICO’s Marc Caputo one of the president’s line really stood out, “ I want people to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come legally.” He joined Sundial to discuss the Venezuela crisis and last night’s State of the Union.

The new film “Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel” documents the story of Jewish American players rediscovering their faith and heritage and joining the Israeli National Baseball Team. The film documents the creation of the team, the support from Major League Baseball, the process of recruiting players and the expansion of the sport within America’s closest ally. Cuban-American filmmaker Daniel Miller joined Sundial to talk about the film.
