According to Fortune Magazine, 323,000 workers, from nurses to hotel janitors, have gone on strike so far this year.  Just recently, 340,000 UPS workers threatened to strike before reaching a last-minute agreement with the company, according to NPR. By contrast, after World War II, over four million workers went on strike, peaking during the Civil Rights movement. Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans have passed any significant legislation that would protect workers, especially not during the Trump administration. In fact, in December 2022, President Biden himself signed a bill blocking a railroad strike, citing an impending “economic catastrophe” the strike would cause, according to Reuters.
