America is still struggling with a supply chain crisis and it might be about to get worse.
A rail strike is on the horizon as soon as the end of this week. The cause is the same cause every time this happens. Unions and money.
The whole thing is likely Biden’s fault too.
Red State explains why:
A Rail Strike Threatens to Shut Down the Country, and the Biden Administration Is to Blame
One of the major economic stories flying under the radar right now (far behind the inflation report yesterday and the subsequent stock market tumble) is the fact that a major railroad worker strike is set to start as soon as midnight this Friday night, and it could all be Joe Biden’s fault.
According to some reports, while workers are generally well-paid, the strike is actually focused on quality of life, which is pretty miserable for those workers. Fixed time, lack of overtime time due to classification loopholes, and miserable experiences have workers ready to go on strike until things get better. And while eight of the twelve unions at the negotiating table have agreed not to strike, the remaining four represent enough of the workforce to trigger a major shutdown in the U.S.
The Biden administration is jumping in to try to prevent that strike, and they may still be able to do so. However, according to a new report from Fox Business, this may have been a problem created by the Biden administration for political purposes.
See, the President’s mediation board in June decided to just get up and walk away from the negotiating table, which left the two sides – the rail companies and the unions – to fend for themselves. And, it hasn’t gone very well. But now there is speculation that they walked away in order to create an issue for Biden to “resolve” ahead of the midterms for another “victory” going into the election season.
This is just more fuel for the midterms.
