Public Sector Workers Rising: We'll look at the recent flurry of labor grassroots militancy and organizing in the public sector, particularly in education and healthcare.
Sharon Persinger is PSC Treasurer and a native of West Virginia. Sharon will elaborate on an article she wrote for Clarion on the West Virginia teachers' strike. Victory in West Virginia in turn helped spark teacher uprisings in other right to work states, particularly Oklahoma, Kentucky and Arizona.
Sean Petty is a registered nurse, a member of the Board of Directors of the New York State Nurses Association and frequent contributor to Jacobin on issues of labor and healthcare.
Discussion will follow.
As usual, light refreshments will be provided.
