Biggest Wildcat Strike In Decades Hints At New U.S. Labor Unrest

Senator Richard Ojeda, a Democrat from West Virginia, center, gestures to striking school workers inside the West Virginia Capitol in Charleston, West Virginia, U.S., on Friday, March 2, 2018. A week ago, thousands of public school teachers in West Virginia went out on strike, a rare but familiar union-organized action to protest low wages and rising health-care costs. Tuesday night, state union leaders and the Governor Jim Justice reached a deal, and the teachers were expected to be back at work on Thursday, but they didn't go. Unsatisfied with the resolution, they stayed on the picket line, mounting one of the country's biggest unauthorized "wildcat" strikes in decades. Photographer: Scott Heins/Bloomberg via Getty Images
