What’s The Buzz On A Mass Strike?


February 14, 2017 - 1:14 pm

Mass nationwide strikes, in resistance to the current administration, are in the works. One has been declared for this Friday, February 17th. Another is being organized for International Women’s Day, March 8th. Yes Magazine Senior Editor, James Trimarco has been following the discussions on strikes, and shared his perspective on the March 8th mass strike in particular. KBCS’s Yuko Kodama spoke with him by phone and asked if a strike today might be similar to labor strikes that the US has seen in the past.

The Chicago Teachers Union and the National Organization for Women are two groups supporting the March 8th mass strike. For more information on this strike you can refer to a Guardian article titled “Women of America: We’re Going on Strike. Join Us so Trump will See Our Power“. Another general strike is being discussed for this Friday, February 17th.
