Increasing strain on supply chain workers, lower wages, and inflation, among other factors, are leading to strikes across the world that heavily impact many different supply chains. MIT FreightLab Co-Director David Correll, whose research focuses on the working experiences of the American long-haul truck driver, was asked for comment for a piece about labor disruptions along supply chains.
“When I’m lucky enough to get to chat with working truck drivers as part of my research, almost all of them describe feeling disrespected during the course of their workday,” said Correll “I think there has been frustration building among the hard-working people who make our supply chains functions for a while now. Some of that could be finally boiling over.”
