L.A. Port Truck Drivers Lose Work To Coronavirus
The spread of the novel coronavirus is rippling through the world economy, and the impact is especially strong for workers at L.A.’s ports — the busiest in the country.
With parts of China locked down to fight the infection, traffic at the Port of L.A. declined 23% in February compared to the same month last year.
Many truck drivers who haul goods out of the port have lost work. But some have more security than others.
