How The Looming Railway Strike Will Cause Further Pain To American Families


Are we living in an Ayn Rand novel?

This is the question many are asking in the wake of runaway inflation, an energy crisis, geopolitical tensions, and the complete collapse of public trust in government institutions.

One could say that the looming railway strike is the cherry on the liberal-progressive policy cake which is destroying the peace and prosperity within America.

According to sources, railway workers represented by railway unions are threatening to strike, mainly due to objections regarding time-off policies among other things.

Such a strike will only increase inflationary woes by surging the price of products—some estimate a 40% increase in certain products due to the strike.

Here are some of the reasons workers give for striking and the greater economic concerns:

Washington Examiner reports that the railways are already rapidly deteriorating ahead of the strike:

The three canceled routes head westward, including the Southwest Chief route from Chicago to Los Angeles, the Empire Builder route from Chicago to Seattle, and the California Zephyr route from Chicago to San Francisco.

A portion of a fourth route that saw cancellations heads eastward from Los Angeles to San Antonio in a portion of the Texas Eagle route.


Congress may step in to intervene, according to Newsmax:

On Monday, Hoyer told Bloomberg Television that Congress would act to avert the national railway strike.

However, the congressional clock would already be ticking on the first phase of railway strike, which reportedly involves Amtrak halting three long-distance-route trains, beginning Tuesday.
