The trucker strike is winding down, and now the oil refinery workers have gone on strike. There's a political element to it all, especially the latter strike. They want to bring down the government. (Some want the military to step back in; others, for the socialists to take over.) Meanwhile, the people suffer and the country reels from billions of dollars of damage. As an example, 65 million birds were sacrificed last week for lack of feed, causing, besides the economic disaster, an environmental crisis. The country depends almost entirely on trucking for the movement of goods and products.
