Experiments with truth: 9/10/09

    • Hundreds of AT&T workers in Danbury, Connecticut went to work wearing t-shirts saying “prisoner of AT&T” to protest the expiration of their contract. Bosses sent them home without pay, but the workers are threatening to file a grievance with the National Labor Relations Board over arbitrary suspensions.
    • On their first day back to work, US Senators were greeted by 40 climate activists, who built miniature windmills and made mechanical noises in the middle of the Hart Senate Office building until interrupted by the Capitol Police. At that point, a 50 ft banner dropped demanding that the Senators “Get to Work” for “Green Jobs Now”.
    • More than 270 faculty members from the University of California have signed an online petition in support of a walkout later this month to protest budget cuts.
