Update on West Virginia Teachers’ Strike TODAY on The Labor Forum
One of the striking teachers will be calling into The Labor Forum today, airing from 4-5 on WRFG 89.3 FM
This strike by thousands of education workers in a right-to-work state has captured the attention of workers everywhere
faced with low-wages, soaring healthcare costs and anti-union, anti-worker legislation.
West Virginia, the historic home of labor struggles by miners and others, is once again the site of a fierce battle against
austerity cuts and the rule of powerful economic interests.
Joining the fight as of midnight are 1400 CWA members striking against Frontier Communications.
WRFG’s Spring Pledge Drive begins today, March 5 and goes until March 25.
