These issues are what we focus on at all levels of government.
Suggested actions this week
West Virginia Teachers
West Virginia teachers took to the streets for their families, their communities and their students. And may have foreshadowed the future of organized labor.
With no collective bargaining rights, no contract, and no legal right to strike, the teachers managed to mount a statewide work stoppage anyway, and make their demands heard, marshal public support, and stick together until they won. And the rank and file, not union leaders, came to call the shots and ended up winning a five percent raise this year for teachers - and all other state employees.
They did the hard work, so let's give them a hand and help make up for pay lost during the strike.
