Transit Workers Unite held a speak out. I interviewed Erik Bassir and Erek Slater outside the break room at the terminus of the CTA Red Line on Howard Street which also is a major transfer point for bus commuters between Chicago and its suburbs.

They speak to issues the public normally takes for granted and their campaign to gain worker input into shaping the conditions of their work; they talk about their jobs, the nature of being public service workers and the effects on safety and health caused by the neoliberal management style that has been instituted by the past administration of arch neoliberal mayor Rahm Emanuel.
