Many faces! - Snapshots from distributing WorkersWildWest

During the distribution of WorkersWildWest we have had short conversations with various local workers. We collated them into a short article to be published and circulated in upcoming WorkersWildWest no.6 - we hope to be able to create a feedback loop.
