Amtrak Cancels All Long-Distance Service Nationwide Over Looming Rail Strike

...Amtrak has canceled all long-distance trains nationwide starting Thursday, as it prepares for a possible freight-rail strike that would impact its service.

This should be re-titled ...

The Art Of the Shakedown by Unions.

1. Unions spend billions to get Biden elected;
2. Unions threaten to strike in advance of an election;
3. Biden forces through an absolute sweetheart deal for unions,
4. Declare victory.

Even as a Bernie support I can see through this charade.

Californians prepare to eat well while the rest of the nation prepares to eat nothing but corn and canned food.

In related news we all continue to be the envy of Russia and China.

"4. Declare victory."

And deplorable Trumpers just skip 1-3 and and all the hard work just declare victory. Even years after they badly lose elections too apparently.

How long before Republicans start taking credit for this?

There are likely a few who are already fundraising off of it.

Workers can make a show of voting it down, but they usually just end up signing for essentially the same thing later.
