Hundreds of Thousands of Service Workers Planning Anti-Trump Labor Strike

Written by  Katherine Rodriguez

Hundreds of thousands of service workers are planning an anti-Trump labor strike for May 1, BuzzFeed reported Saturday.

Nearly 350,000 workers plan to strike President Trump’s agenda on International Workers’ Day on May 1.

More than 300,000 food chain workers and 40,000 unionized service workers will walk off the job that day, according to a coalition of groups leading the strike.

Multiple thousands of employees from the Service Employees International Union and United Service Workers West, led by David Huerta, will strike.

“We understand that there’s risk involved in that,” Huerta told BuzzFeed News, “but we’re willing to take that risk in order to be able to move forward in this moment, while the most marginalized are in the crosshairs of this administration.”

A statement announcing the strike says that participants will be rejecting Trump’s policies on immigration and what they say is his “agenda of hate and greed.”

“We need to show this Administration, Congress and large corporate interests that our human and economic worth is more powerful than their agenda of hate and greed,” the statement reads. “Opposing Trump is not enough. We must stop him.”

The last time there was a major strike of this magnitude was when the first Day Without Immigrants took place in 2006.

Fire them all, there are lots of people in the unemployment lines that need work. I am so sick of the protests and strikes. Don't any of these people have a life? I had to raise my children and I worked, sometimes two jobs, but I always went to work! They don't have a clue what hard times are all about but perhaps it's time they learned!!!

I wish that every single person that does this 'protest' garbage is fired. Ungrateful group of morons should be thankful they have a job at all. Working in the 'service' end of jobs says you're not educated enough to get a better paying job...and you should be thankful you're getting any paycheck at all. Your other option is food stamps and welfare and we'll see exactly how happy you'll be then. Just remember....high school kids can take your jobs in a heartbeat.

This would be a great venue for ICE to pick up a lot of illegals. I think ICE should bring plenty of jail wagons to each of these demonstrations. WHAT A ROUND-UP that would be.

Norwood McDaniel: Why did you put this on this site so many times. It just detracts from other comments. Once would be enough.
