Professor John Logan Discusses UC Labor Strike on NPR and The Washington Post
Department Chair and Professor of Labor and Employment Studies John Logan discussed academic workers from the University of California campuses going on strike to increase their salaries and get subsidies. After working graduate students went on the year's largest strike, Logan expressed his opinion on how this would affect undergraduate students.
Since most of the strikers work closely with undergraduate students, Logan says, "This is a really key time for some of these disruptions to be happening. … Finals are just around the corner. … Many students are relying on teachers' assistants to help them prep for finals, have some of these 9 p.m. study sessions. … And since this strike is open-ended and we don't have an idea of when it could conclude since we haven't seen big concessions from either party, it's unclear whether students are going to get any reprieve."
