West Virginia teacher strike

So, West Virginia teachers (some of whom are unionized, but whose unions are not recognized by the state) have been on strike for a week, continuing even after their union leadership struck a deal with the governor.  (The strikers fear, quite reasonably, that the legislature and other parties will not carry through.)  It’s quite inspiring!  Here are some good articles about it:
