    Default 2023 was year of the strike.

    2023 was year of the strike. Here’s what could be ahead in 2024

    New York
    CNN

    The number of major strikes jumped 43% to 33 in 2023, according to the official Labor Department count released Wednesday, the biggest number of large work stoppages in America in more than 20 years.

    There were 462,000 workers who were on strike at some point in 2023, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report, and there were 16.7 million days of work lost when the number of strikers and the length of the strikes are taken into account. That’s up from only 127,000 strikers who were off the job for a total of 2.2 million days in 2022.

    The greatest number of lost days of work was because of the strike by SAG-AFTRA, which represents 160,000 actors, and was on strike for about four months.

    The last time there were this many strikes, or that many days of work lost, was 2000, when 39 major strikes occurred, keeping workers off the job for a combined 20.4 million days. The 33 strikes last year is roughly double the average of 16.7 major strikes a year over the course of the last 20 years.

    The official Labor Department count of strikes is incomplete though, since it only tracks work stoppages involving 1,000 or more workers. And that is a relatively small percentage of strikes that take place on a regular basis.

    A separate database of all work stoppages by Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations shows that there were 451 work stoppages in 2023, up 9% from the 2022 total. So the major strikes of 1,000 or more account for less than 10% of the overall number of strikes.

    When contracts are reached to end or avoid strikes, they typically run for multiple years. For example, the three labor deals at General Motors, Ford and Stellantis that ended the six-week strike by up to 50,000 autoworkers last fall will run through April 30, 2028. So many of the major strikes and contract negotiations that occurred in 2023 will not occur again in 2024. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a chance of some major work stoppages this year.

    Thanks to the union strikes non-union employees have benefited from the strikes. When the unions win so does the non-union American work force. Unions standing up for the American work force. Surely you are not against the American work force getting a win every once in a while, are you?

    Nov 1 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor (7203.T), opens new tab said on Wednesday it is raising the wages of nonunion U.S. factory workers just days after the United Auto Workers union won major pay and benefit hikes from the Detroit Three automakers.

    Haters don't really hate you, in fact they hate themselves because you are a reflection of what they wish to be.

    Toyota had to so that the employees could afford the overall price increases that came as a result of the higher wages paid to the union wannabe workers ! !

    Nope, Toyota has to keep up with the limit competition in the work force. The baby boomers are retiring and there isn't enough workers to replace them.

    Are you saying the working age population has gone down in the US? Please yes or no.

    It's just my strong opinion but the guy on that video is a miseducated blithering idiot.

    According to the chart below, where is this decrease? It's just a leftist fabrication to help justify their mass illegal alien invasion.

    The working age chart shows we now have 209,334,081.06040, that's 209+ million work age. Which steadily increased since 1977 to 12-1-2023.

    You would not give a yes or no answer, so I had to give the answer.

    No the working age population has not gone down.

    And ss aren't most of the ten+ million illegals of working age. Or are they not required to work?
