Interview with BVWU and RWDU members

Fast food and grocery workers have been engaged in intense organizing and bargaining lately.  Burgerville Workers Union launched a four-store strike last Wednesday trying to force the company to substantially raise wages.  Grocery Workers, represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers 555, at Fred Meyers, Safeway, Albertsons and QFC came close to a strike recently over low wages and pay equity for women.  Co-hosts Amanda Hill and Jamie Partridge interview two rank and file union activists about their struggles.
