ICYMI: [link removed] Virginia boss to striking transit workers: "Let them freeze!"

By Aloysius Wolf: I drive for a living myself, and I made the trip from my home in Fredericksburg, Virginia to the transit strike now underway in Loudoun County, in the far Western suburbs of Washington, DC. It was my time to put in some picket duty and show support for these workers, members of Local 689, Amalgamated Transit Union, who are on strike against the Keolis company, a subcontractor with Loudoun County...

Labor Quote: William "Big Bill" Haywood
