Los Angeles teachers have gone on strike. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. JOIN TYT: https://go.tyt.com/MFVTaAAu0Ws
“Los Angeles teachers walked off the job Monday morning in their first strike in 30 years, placing hundreds of thousands of students in limbo.
About 31,000 members of the teachers union had agreed to walk out to try to win smaller class sizes, more support staff at schools and better pay.
Thousands of picketing teachers and other union members — many of whom had arrived at their schools before sunrise — joined the midmorning downtown rally in the chilly rain along with some students and parents. Then they marched roughly a mile to school district headquarters on Beaudry Avenue.
Michael La Mont, 48, who teaches third grade at Hooper Elementary, said the march represented the unity of teachers working for better conditions.”
