"Worker strikes were already sharply increasing before the pandemic, but now a number of them are occurring simultaneously. Time reports 10 strikes were happening across the country in early October. Among them, a work stoppage at cereal giant Kellogg's over what employees call "a death of 1,000 cuts" despite working throughout the pandemic. Tens of thousands of film and TV union members have authorized their own strike. And nearly 700 nurses in Massachusetts have been on strike for seven months, marking the longest health care strike in state history."
