If these workers are sent home because of these illegal protest, why are they not arrested? This is insane, and Barry and his mentors are loving every second of it.
The protest was part of a coordinated action targeting 11 West Coast ports. Some unions, including the one representing Oakland teachers, supported the attempted blockade. But the longshore workers union and other labor groups said shutting down the port would harm stevedores and truckers.
“It pisses me off,” said trucker Mark Hebert, 47, as he tried to get into the port this morning. “I am losing money. I don’t get paid when I am just sitting here. I’ve got a truck payment and insurance payment just like everyone else.”
