US Congresswoman Ashley Hinson says a rail strike would disrupt the supply chain and have devastating impacts on the agricultural economy.
Rail worker unions recently rejected a September 15th tentative agreement brokered by President Biden, raising the possibility of a strike next month.
“I think the biggest concern in my mind is animal feed and what that impact could be,” Hinson said. “When I say it could be truly devastating for not only our supply chain, it will be devastating for agriculture in this country as well.”
The Iowa Republican says a labor agreement needs to be reached soon.
