Labor Statistics, like the unemployment figures and the numbers of Covid deceased, are designed as propaganda statistics. In the case of The Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of strikes in Yankeedom is played down by the categories BLS uses. Fortunately, Labor Notes has developed a new Labor Action Tracker. 28 strikes across the U.S. were documented for just the month of April by using this tracker. This is 22 more strikes than the BLS counted.
