At first glance, you might say, "Trucker strike? What's that got to do with me?"
It has a lot to do with you....More......
The majority of goods move around in Italy on wheels.
That's milk for babies, the paper for your office fax machine, and the gas for your car.
And, if things get nasty, it might mean trucks moving suuuuuper slowly, if not stopped entirely, on the highways.
Let the driver beware.
Well, that was pretty depressing.
What's the good news?
Thankfully, strikes in Italy may be much more frequent than they are in the States, for example, but they usually last only a day.
In fact, this trucker strike is set to last for the day of August 5.
Want continuous info about strikes in Italy, as one reader, today, of a June 2013 blog post asked?
The only place I know for official and reliable and timely information is the strikes web page on the official site for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport...but it's only in Italian.
Or...keep your eyes on my blog! (Of course!)
