Striking at the University of Minnesota

Just call me Norma Rae!

 

Today is the first day of the AFSCME union strike at the University of Minnesota. I have only been at the U of MN one month and gone for 2 weeks (without pay) for that and now they are striking. Crazy.

 

I did get to meet Al Franken (he is running for congress in 2008) and had my photo taken with him and I was just a few feet away from Elizabeth Edwards, so that was fun. But walking in 90+ degree heat is not fun. My feet are killing me.
