Are strikes making a comeback

January 11, 2019 / Riia O'Donnell

In the tightest talent market in recent history, job seekers may appear to be holding all the cards, but workers are also realizing their value and acting on it through strikes, according to reporting from The American Prospect. As employees realize their value, they’re more willing to leverage it for better wages and working conditions. Toward the end of last year, nearly 14,000 hotel workers walked off the job across the country demanding year-round benefits. In California, 15,000 patient-care workers staged a walkout for three days against the University of California’s medical centers. In support, 24,000 unionized workers, including truck drivers, gardeners and cooks, joined their protest.
