Read this piece and RT if you would participate in an #EconomicWalkout - a cessation of all non-essential spending - from February 1st-3rd, in solidarity with impacted government workers & contractors, if Trump & McConnell fail to end the #shutdown.
“An economic walkout would be a more just solution than a general strike, because the effort would occur on a sliding-scale, with the greatest sacrifices being made by more affluent Americans.”
“Those who are barely scraping by economically would not be expected to make major sacrifices, because they are already at the point of “essentials only” spending.”
“In a general strike, the greatest sacrifices would be shouldered by the working-class, where the penalty for striking would be heftier: job loss, or the sacrifice of very limited vacation or sick time (if they even have any).”
