(interview w two UC Berkeley strikers)

UAW 2865 stewards, Cyn Huang and Keith Brower Brown, lay out the power and complexities of the five week strike of 48,000 academic workers at the ten University of California campuses.  This job action is the largest of any in the United States in 2022 and the largest ever of academic workers.  The University of California is the largest employer in the state, a state with the largest economy in the country.  The product these workers turn out is not only an educated workforce from around the world but scientific research that is turned into profitable products by private industry.
