  1. The rail strike would cause unneeded stress and tension to the already lackluster supply chain and the problems within, and with this in mind, the government takes control over the situation instead of the railway management to curb what could become a national crisis. The government should only get involved in business in certain situations, such as the current one, which is extremely dangerous to the health of the nation.

  3. The U.S. government got involved in the rail strike instead of just letting labor and management come to an agreement themselves because if labor and management couldn’t come to an agreement it would severely affect supply chains in certain states of our nation. I believe that the government should have some involvement in business because without some government intervention, there would probably be many businesses doing unethical things in order to make a bigger profit, such as making workers work an excessive amount of hours or paying their workers really low wages. Monopolies would exist and make it harder for new entrepreneurs to make new businesses.

  5. The U.S. government got involved in the rail strike because the strike was causing a major disruption in the transportation of goods and services, which was having a negative impact on the economy

  6. The railroad strike has been going on for cool minutes and it’s in the governments best interest to divert the crisis because the railroads do still carry goods and yes, I know I just learned about this the other day I thought railroads didn’t exist, and we just rely on planes and ships but yes, railroads are really important and the government needs to do something about it before the whole economy goes down with the railroads so if that’s just raising a few employee salaries, then I think that’s the risk we have to pay when it comes to the way railroads crisis
