There is a strike taking place on the University of Minnesota St. Paul campus today.
Read all about it here.
In regards to what I've seen so far, there hasn't been a ton of action on the campus today in regards to the strike. Then again, I might have missed something.
I did drive past the picket line on my drive to my office. I was following a private company's electrical service truck. All the picketers were waving at him and whooping. I wondered if he was a scab electrician coming to cover for someone striking.
Out of nowhere, last week, one of my colleagues said to me, "My grandmother was a communist. My mother was a socialist. I don't know what I am, but I know you don't cross a picket line."
And I almost said, but I checked myself "Your grandmother was a COMMUNIST?!"
Anywho, I'm glad I didn't have to cross a picket line today.
