It may be a summer of discontent brewing in the UK and the European continent. With raging inflation, traditional union powers are gearing up to respond and demand higher wages for their workers.
Britain is in the midst of a snarling traffic catastrophe as the nation is hit by strikes. Around 40,000 rail staff are demanding a 7% pay rise. Amid the ongoing rail strike, only 20% of the train services are running. RMT union said that talks are underway, but further strikes are possible. See this in the video report below. Striking rail workers are asking for a 7% pay rise, despite CPI inflation at 9.1% and RPI at 11.7%. , But they are only being offered 3% by the Department for Transport (DfT). NHS workers and teachers have also threatened to walk out if the government doesn’t up their pay deals.
The French want to get in on the act as well. French rail unions have called for a national day of strike action to demand wage increases. The national rail strike is planned for Wednesday, July 6th, the day before French schools break up for the summer.
Three of the biggest rail unions – CFDT, Sud-Rail, and CGT – have joined the strike call, while a fourth, Unsa, is set to announce whether it will join next week. They are demanding wage increases to help their members cope with the cost of living crisis, saying: “Railway workers are being hit hard, and are suffering a clear and sharp decline in their purchasing power.
Labor strikes will be European-wide as major airlines are set to get hit by labor actions as well. Trade unions in Europe that represent employees of the Irish low-cost airline Ryanair “are calling on flight attendants … to stop working” at the end of June and early […]

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
