Ep 150 - Have You Heard The Good News?
Surprisingly we settled on nearly all good news stories this week, so if you're looking for some positivity, this one's for you. After an update on the ongoing national strike movement, we discuss the school strike in LA. 60,000 workers shutting down the second largest city in the country's schools and making big wins that will help the whole community. Also this week, two more Trader Joe's locations joined the union movement, one on each coast. Indian farmers have made more wins at the state level after more impressive protests. The RMT reached a deal with Network Rail after 9 months of strikes and made big wins the Tories claimed were impossible. Finally, Starbucks workers demonstrated their organization and resolve by shutting down 100 stores across the country and released their national contract demands.
