Workers' struggle is broader than Miami

Most readers here, I trust, are aware that housekeepers at the University of Miami have been on strike -- first for better wages and some health coverage, and now for recognition of a union. It may have been overlooked, though, that this is an issue in many places, including the venerable University of Virginia. Here, Barbara Ehrenreich lends her support to the struggle and tells how she is helping out. The piece is from Bacon's Rebellion.

Update: The Miami strike is over.
