2021 General Strike?
Leave a reply
At the Guardian, Robert Reich asks if America is experiencing an unofficial general strike?
Corporate America wants to frame this as a “labor shortage.” Wrong. What’s really going on is more accurately described as a living-wage shortage, a hazard pay shortage, a childcare shortage, a paid sick leave shortage, and a healthcare shortage.
Unless these shortages are rectified, many Americans won’t return to work anytime soon. I say it’s about time.
