West Virginia Teachers’ Strike

Earlier this week we reported that the West Virginia teachers strike had ended, but it looks like that report was premature. Striking teachers ultimately rejected the deal and refused to go back to work. As one teacher put it,

“What’s the worst thing that could happen – they fire me and I have to go get a job that pays more money than this?” … you’re losing right now – you have nothing to lose.”

Everyone should read this NYT editorial about Union Power and the West Virginia strike.
