Wayne Kramer and Tom Morello made an appearance in downtown Los Angeles to support the striking teachers on Friday.
Kramer, who recently has been touring MC50th and published a book, joined Morello to show support and play music.
Over 60,000 people converged in DT Los Angeles to mark the end of the first week of our strike. Bargaining continues through the weekend. Our picket lines remain strong. #UTLAstrong #LAUSDstrike #WeAreLA pic.twitter.com/BxM58SGONz

Morello has been an active participant in the charity Kramer founded, Jail Guitar Doors.

Voices for The Working Class
Both musicians have a vested interest. Morello’s mother was a union teacher and Detroit-born Kramer has always been a voice for the working class.
Kramer to this day won’t drive a foreign-made automobile and has a Dodge Charger.
It is not the first rally Kramer and Morello have attended. In 2011, the two played a rally to support public employee unions in Wisconsin.
