Graduate student workers at Columbia University in New York City formed the biggest active strike in the U.S., demanding greater pay and benefits.

Columbia University has extended an offer — but the school is also threatening their jobs if the strike doesn't end Friday.

Here & Now's Peter O'Dowd speaks with Johannah King-Slutzsky, one of the students on strike, about the movement.

This segment aired on December 10, 2021.
