It's weird suddenly seeing everyone positing pro workers rights opinions in the comments. Usually when I say something like this I get shouted down and declared a "Marxist."

The airlines and main stream media as hiding the vax mandate rebellion that is just starting. Let's go, truckers and nurses!


The flights were cancelled because of a massive walk out of air traffic controllers in Florida due to the mask mandates. Go air traffic controllers! And let's go Brandon!


Bingo...and the media isn't reporting on it, trying to cover up the reason.
