Freight rail strike threatens supply chains, prompting White House planning
White House aides are looking at how to ensure essential products carried by rail — such as food, energy, and key health products — could still reach their final destination even in the event of a potential strike.
What I find infuriating is that most reporting is just talking about the supply chain disruption and not the core issue at hand: workers are looking to strike so they can get **unpaid** sick leave (not even paid!). America never fails to disappoint when it comes to cruel healthcare and employment situations.
