We'll be adding a heavily moderated comment board to this feature shortly.
Workers at Hunts Point Terminal have launched first Worker Strike since 1986 per WSWS.org.
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.
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.
