Podcast: Stuck for days in LA’s biggest traffic jam

Hundreds of thousands of sailors around the world are stuck on cargo ships far longer than they had imagined, with few chances of contact from outside. Ports usually offer options for a break, but most of these sailors have not had access to COVID-19 vaccines, so they are not allowed to set foot in the United States.

Today, LA Times Business Reporter Ronald D. White takes us to the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the nation’s largest. A large backlog of cargo ships is waiting offshore for a trip to unload goods. In the meantime, the crew gets on board nowhere fast – and there is basically no internet access, no visitors, no delicious restaurant food delivery. They are trapped.
