Have West Virginia teachers started a movement?

GLEN DALE, W.Va. (WTRF) – You will likely never forget a nine day work stoppage earlier this year as teachers and other public employees across West Virginia called for health insurance coverage and a pay scale adjustment.

In the couple of months since, several other states have also gone on strike. It looks like West Virginia teachers may have started something.

In snow, rain, or sunshine, a large group of teachers and school employees could be found lining the highway outside of John Marshall High School every day of the West Virginia teacher work stoppage.

It was like that all across the state, and it got the attention of the entire nation.
