Will Los Angeles Teachers’ Strike Boost Labor Movement?


Jason Kearnaghan is quoted on the recent Los Angeles Teachers' strike protesting "intolerable" working conditions. "Thirty-four percent of public-sector workers in the U.S. are union members, compared to 6.4 percent of private-sector workers, according to 2018 data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The California teachers' strike is unlikely to significantly change these numbers in either the public or private sector," He said. "This was an event that received a lot of publicity, but I don't think it's going to move the needle too much with respect to the trends we've seen."
