AskProfWolff: The Political Economy of General Strikes

A Patron of Economic Update asks:"Several of the major unions are planning for a general strike should the current executive challenge the legitimacy of the election and refuse to leave office. The forced work stoppage early on the pandemic brought the Republicans to the table fast. Why did the working class not see that it was work stoppage that pressured politics? In addition should the strike be called to force trump to accept the results would it bring a greater awareness of working class political power via strike?"
