Gotta love these socialist governments. Always making things worse for working people.
Vancouver Port is about to do something similar by dicktating how old a truck will be allowed into port facilities. This one should be interesting, because the majority of truckers are East Asian and are fighting it on the race card.

THE NORWEGIAN ARMY WANTS ITS USED UNDIES BACK

The Norwegian army wants its underwear back. Even soiled.

According to Euronews , supply shortages have become so bad that anyone enlisting in the Norwegian army will have to return used underwear, socks and bras once their services ends. The decision was made because shortages, supply chain issues, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic made it harder for the army to purchase an adequate supply of undergarments.

Public broadcaster NRK reported many conscripts would voluntarily return intimate apparel in years past, but now that’s been made mandatory. The unmentionables must be washed, cleaned and returned in good condition.

The Guardian reported that underwear shortages could impact the operation of those currently enlisted, and in some cases, “the safety of the soldier.”

In Norway, army conscription is compulsory. However, not everyone is taken into the military, the Guardian reported. Candidates are questioned about their mental and physical health, criminal records, and if they’re motivated to be a soldier.

Those who meet specified criteria — only about one in six — are selected to serve in the army.
Winter underwear.

Gotta get rid of trucks and drivers to make way for shiny new driverless trucks. Same is happening to healthcare as it shifts to AI.

AI and 5G are coming for your and your children's jobs.

Even jobs that take a lifetime to perfect are on their way out.

The Beast (digital) is going to elimate the "craftsman".

Healthcare has been run by artificial intelligence for several decades. That is why we are now in this position.
Ummmm, no. Name an aspect where AI diagnoses then decides and applies the course of treatment including surgery by AI.

While saving companies money was the sole purpose of just in time process and the products and services led to lower prices to the consumer, it also always had finished product issues.
Politics can not and will not interfere with private business practices. Just because so many private enterprises chose to deal with chinese manufacturers is not a political decision, it is a business decision.
Unfortunately, it has become a "political" issue. Politics are interfering with private businesses. Take California |(please) and their new trucking laws prohibiting owner operators who are leased to big companies. As stated in the video here on CC, it's a terrible law & the Supreme Court of CA refuses to look at it. That is truly disturbing and the fact that we are facing food shortages in addition now to trucking issues. we're in trouble & no one seems to give a damn. It infuriating!!

Does this affect you at all Boomer?

Nope, I have my own authority..

The Los Angeles ports and most of the Agricultural being pulled out of California may end up going to waste on the docks..

Companies like Lawblaws won’t pay the fuel surcharges going to California..

So their is talk about an all out boycott of California.. it would cost the state billions..

You see most folks don’t understand, trucking is an essential service, without it.. you starve.

Many truckers are feeling like they have been pushed around enough, vaccine mandates, DOT rules, shitty highways, that’s why you had the Canadian blockades..

The next time it will be a walk out.. refuse to work and let Canada and the USA starve..

The problem with that was the East Indians never would jump on board.. now it’s the East Indians who are leading the potential boycotts and walk out..

Smart operators would do pin to pin at Oregon or Nevada borders.

It justifies short hauling with electric tractor
