Southern California Port Strikes Costing $1 Billion per Day

At the end of November, a workers’ strike closed the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach California. Workers from the International Longshore and Warehouse Union walked off the job on November 27, and nearly all container terminals were closed. Approximately 40% of the nation’s imports are handled at these ports, and it is vital to the region’s economy.
