As tension increases in LA over the effects of the strikes, the word on the street is not hopeful.

The strikes, most notealby the MTA strike, has created tremendous tension throughout the lower classes in Los Angeles. Most of the proletariate cannot get to work in their normal way. Some are losing jobs, some are driving without a lisence, some are spending what little they have saved on taxis, and the ultimate effect remains to be seen. A great dissent is taking the city, grocery store workers have had enough and even the sherrifs are going against their superiors. It doesn't help that it looks like some nuclear winter outside due to the fires.
The word on the street is that everyone has had enough, and unfortunately, if the past repeats itself here in LA, that means riots.
The only difference is that the Sherrifs are on strike, and the army reserves are on the other side of the globe.
