Grocers are stocking up because the nations food supply chain issues are about to get even worse.
A strike at a Mondelez International bakery that started in (of course) Portland, Oregon has spread to Virginia and Colorado. The bakery’s make Oreo cookies and other snack food for Nabisco.
Why the walk out? Because of Joe Biden’s policy.
On top of workers negotiating a new contract they want the company to stop outsourcing jobs to Mexico (something that did not happen under Trump). The company actually ended up in the crosshairs of President Trump in 2016 when they shifted production to Mexico.
Between the unions using the pandemic to squeeze Mondelez and Biden removing Trump’s policies to discourage outsourcing the strike is going to cause a shortage.
After Biden was inaugurated, Mondelez closed two factories in Georgia and New Jersey and increased production in Mexico.
The move hurt America but helped the companies profits, from Yahoo News:
Mondelez International’s net income climbed 98% in the quarter ended in June to $1.1 billion, while sales climbed 12.4% to $6.6 billion, compared to the same time a year ago.
During her trip overseas Vice President Kamala Harris warned about looming shortages.
“The stories that we are now hearing about the caution that if you want to have Christmas toys for your children, it might now be might be the time to start buying them, because the delay may be many, many months,” Harris said. “So across the board, people are experiencing the issue,” Harris said.
Kamala claims the supply chain issues are because of climate change not the administrations horrible policies.
“And, of course, the climate crisis is fueling a lot of this. When we look at the stronger typhoons that have disrupted shipping lanes and sea-level rise, which threatens port infrastructure as an example. So these are the many issues that are causing these disruptions,” she said.
