We speak with LAUREN KAORI GURLEY about the strikes in Matamoros. Since January, 50,000 workers have gone off the job and the prospects for the labor movement are the best in a generation. We talk about what has led to this moment and what we might expect going forward. Lauren Kaori Gurley is a reporter-researcher at The New Republic. She previously served as web editor at the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA). Her reporting on labor, immigration, poverty, and the U.S.-Mexico border has been published in CityLab, In These Times, NPR's Latino USA, The American Prospect, and ProPublica.
