Newspaper Strike Fifteen Years Later-Part Two 07/16

    I well remember a comment made by columnist Susan Watson at the time when strikers were told go back to work or be fired. Watson’s comment was “Oh, I’m scared.” I remember thinking at the time how uncaring she was given that she might find another job but most of the union members would not. I haven’t changed my mind in my opinion of her arrogance at the time.
