by Agusto Cesar Sandino Segundo
Tuesday Jul 15th, 2008 3:12 AM
On Monday July 14th students, workers, and supporters from the University of Californina Santa Cruz stopped by Free Radio Santa Cruz to help provide coverage about the first day of the 5 day UC-wide strike. 8,500 University of California workers represented by the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) began a five-day strike at UC’s ten campuses and five medical centers. The strike, which began on July 14th, will conclude on July 18th. At issue are poverty wages as low as $10 per hour. Many employees work 2-3 jobs and qualify for public assistance to meet their families’ basic needs.
