No end in sight for Santa Clara County workers’ strike as it heads into its second week

Thousands of Santa Clara County employees will continue their strike into its ninth day with no signs of ceasing their picketing and protest efforts. County employees allege unfair labor practices and are demanding higher wages. Hundreds of them walk out each day from a rotating list of government offices including local hospitals and the Social Service Agency.
