Research help for a post about strikes

So there’s been a surprising amount of interest in my post about the claimed Domino’s strike, and that post is… very thin on useful information.

As such, tomorrow I’m pulling together a post on strike history, tactics, and resources.

The goal is to have a basic overview of how and why strikes work, what makes them fail when they fail, and what efforts are currently underway for rent strikes, labor strikes, and a general strike.

This is a topic I’m still learning about, so I’m going to be drawing heavily on the knowledge and experience of other people.

If anyone reading this has resources they think would be useful, or news stories they think are relevant, I’d be grateful for the help with research; please post them in the comments below.

Thanks to the COVID-19 outbreak, layoffs have increased, job interviews have been indefinitely postponed, and many places aren’t hiring new workers. All of that means I really need help paying my bills and keeping a roof over my head. is a way for you to help with that, even if it’s just a little bit, and get some perks and extra content in return. You control how much you give, and how long you give it, and every little bit really does help. When lots of people pitch in, it can make a huge difference. Please help if you’re able, and share my work with others. Thank you!
