Summary Note "Thirteen months after Trump allegedly captured the allegiance of 'the white working class,' a strike wave - the first in more than four decades - rocked the United States. Inspired by the wildcat victory of teachers in West Virginia, their counterparts in Oklahoma, Arizona, and across the country walked out of their workplaces and shut down schools to demand better pay for educators, more funding for students, and an end to years of austerity. Confounding all expectations, these working-class rebellions erupted in regions with largely Republican electorates, weak unions, and bans on public sector strikes. By mobilizing to take destiny into their own hands, red state school workers presented a clear alternative to politics as usual. With similar actions now gaining steam in Los Angeles, Oakland, Denver, and Virginia, there is no sign this upsurge will be short-lived. 'Red state revolt' is a compelling analysis of the emergence and development of this historic strike wave, written with an eye to extracting strategic lessons for educators, labor organizers, and radicals across the country." - Book jacket.
