Topic: Issues at stake in the Pittsburgh newspaper strike

Guest: Zack Tanner, president of the Newspaper Guild of Pittsburgh

How Topic Discussed: Five unions are currently on strike against the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the region's largest daily newspapers. What are the issues that led to the labor walkout? How is the strike impacting daily news gathering in Western Pennsylvania? Why is union activity on the rise at media companies and other corporations? Why does the union feel that the newspaper's owners are not bargaining in good faith? Why does the union feel the answer isn't simply "go find a job someplace else"?
