Workers walk out in Striketober

Soaring shipping costs and dwindling truck drivers have led to store shelves going out of stock and consumers being out of luck. Syracuse professor Patrick Penfield explains the mechanics behind a supply chain crisis that’s brought industries across the country to a grinding halt. Workers once deemed essential at John Deere and Kellogg’s are dissatisfied with the growing wage gap despite companies logging record profits over the past year. RT’s Ben Swann reports on tens of thousands of laborers walking out in the midst of ‘Striketober’. TED-Talker and Phenomenal Training director Laura Thomson outlines occupations that benefit from automation but still rely on the ingenuity of human workhands. Radio host of ‘Into Tomorrow’ Dave Graveline talks home tech, including Amazon’s latest Astro companion and Ring’s new drone surveillance system.
