Rakim Brooks, president of the progressive group Alliance for Justice, tweeted in support of workers and their union.
“I cant believe I have to say this: Workers have a right to strike!” Brooks wrote. “Freedom of assembly, and thus collective action, is guaranteed by the 1st amendment and protected by federal law. We can’t let right wing ideology strip us of our basic rights.”
