It seems that not everyone is desperate for the economy to “reopen” – at least not if it’s at the expense of their health, and possibly their lives.
Drawing far too little coverage from the mainstream media, with the exception of a few high-profile targets such as Amazon, is the wave of labor strikes – many of them “wildcat,” without the leadership of a formal labor organization – occurring since the Covid-19 pandemic struck and took center stage of national and global consciousness.
