NYC Workers STRIKE at World's Largest Food Market.
Show: The Jimmy Dore Show
Watched on January, 2021

Notes/Summary:

Summary:

Workers at Hunts Point Terminal have launched first Worker Strike since 1986 per WSWS.org.  

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2021/01/21/hunt-j21.html

 

Asked for better healthcare and a $1 raise.  Hunts countered with a 32 cent raise. Hunts is the largest 

wholesale produce market in the world. 

 

Base annual salary is $40K which in NYC is insufficient for living expenses.  Dore makes the point about 

how companies are counting on government to subsidize their employees.

 

Addional Notes:

There isn't enough coverage of strikes in general which makes these segments from YouTubers all that much more important. 

The reality is it takes coordinated actions such as this strike to force progressive change.
