Feeling effects of Strikes

Labor

by James “JB” Bryson

 

I can’t speak for all of course, but we have been feeling the effects of the recent strikes and protests that have been taking place for the past week.

Reminding me of the time the wife and I were in NYC during the “Occupy Wall Street” times a few years back. Not nearly as unruly, but it has made an already congested area ( traffic off Balboa  come to mind ) even more difficult. A simple trip to the Super Mart took almost an hour today.

Hoping for a quicker resolution.
