This is the beginning of the end, I hope you know.
Truckers quit, and this country goes into the crapper, faster then you can say economic recession.
Here's what will happen when this strike hits 10% of the total- There will be food shortages in smaller areas, gas shortages, and other shortages.
When it hits 20%- You'll start seeing cities with population totals under 10,000 without gas, food, and many other things.
30%- Big cities will start seeing the effect, as gas prices soar, food prices become impossible to pay, fresh fruit is not fresh, and dairy products
40%- Full economic collapse of this country.
The trucking industry is already needing 110,000 jobs, that we have no way of making up. You start losing more people to strikes, it puts a hard spot
on the rest. At 40% of the drivers on strike, you almost cut the total truck force in half, at which time the military and medical supplies will take
top and immediate priority.
Dairy products will be the first to go, as cows need hay and grass to produce milk. Fresh fruit will be next. As the farmers see their produce sitting
in the fields, and diesel prices at extreme heights, they will let it sit and rot.
The first people affected by it will be the poor, welfare people, and minimum wage workers. The second people hurt by it will be the rich, especially
if they have a majority of their wealth tied in stocks.
The last people affected by this will be the ones who started it.
