West Virginia Teachers’ Strike

There is power in a union. This image shows the map of every county in West Virginia shut down by the teachers’ strike that began in late February 2018. The state wanted to give 1 percent annual raises for five years to the teachers — who make less than those in all but three states — and have them pay more for health insurance. Teachers flooded the State Capitol Building instead, leading to a State-wide teachers strike. Stand with the teachers and the rank-and-file union members. Solidarity Forever.
