Graduate student workers have been organizing in droves across the country, fighting back against abysmal wages and impossible working conditions. Recently, the workers at Temple University won a hard fought strike that lasted over a month. While we have covered many graduate worker strikes on the show, the level of repression unleashed by the university administration to try and crush the strike was truly unprecedented, which only made the new contract the workers won even more impressive. We're so excited this week to be joined by Alex Paparella, a PhD student and strike captain with TUGSA, to discuss their strike, their new contract, and the state of labor organizing in academia.
