After the disaster that is the US supply chain performance these past 6 months, the Port of LA/Long Beach is going to start running 24/7, like every other port in the United States has been doing for years.
I knew about this from a while back. The largest seaport in the US doesn't have workers who will work nights. All other container ports in the US are 24/7/365. Except the largest one.
I guess someone finally noticed that the highest paid longshoremen IN THE WORLD don't work nights.
6 months of things getting steadily worse, and the powers that be finally realized that every container port in the US that isn't fucking the dog when it comes to job performance has one thing in common: they turn lights on and keep working after dark. Not LA/Long Beach, though. With a starting salary well over $100,000 a year that can easily be doubled with some overtime, I guess it was unreasonable of us to wonder why the fuck the ILWU had no interest in working more to help soften the impact of their laziness on the rest of us.
The ILWU: Fuck You, we're doing fine.
