Private sector union members are authorizing strikes at a rarely seen in modern America, with more than 100,000 workers recently threatening or mounting work stoppages in health care, higher education, telecommunications, transportation, television, mining, manufacturing, music, metals, oil, carpentry, whiskey, and cereal. The internet dubbed October #Striketober.


Nonunion workers are voting with their feet as well, fueling labor market reckoning that's become known as the Great Resignation. On October 12th the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that an unprecedented 2.9% of the entire workforce, some 4.3m people, quit their jobs in the month of August.
