the clock right now. we're going to have more on that in a few moments. we begin with that breaking news overnight. 10,000 john deere workers going on strike. you're looking live at some employees hitting the picket lines in illinois this morning. this as some other strikes could impact health care and hollywood. terry moran is tracking the latest for us. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, michael. that strike at john deere just the latest in a wave of labor stoppages across the country. there is a new militant spirit in the american workforce. workers want more and they're increasingly willing to strike to get it. this morning, 10,000 workers at john deere hit the picket lines in iowa, illinois and kansas. they argue even as the agricultural equipment company's profits grew by 61% in recent years and their ceo's salary grew by 160% during the pandemic their pay has been cut. >> we need to let them know they can't continue to take our money and take our money.
7:04 am
>> reporter: across the country, labor is on the march. in california and oregon, 24,000 nurses and other health care workers at kaiser permanente voted to authorize a strike over pay and better working conditions. union workers at kellogg's are on strike for more than a week, angry about long hours, including seven-day work weeks. >> our number one priority is to get back to the table and reach a contract so our employees can get back to their jobs and their lives. >> reporter: and soon hollywood may see a walkout. 60,000 film and tv crew members could walk off the job monday over what they claim are unfair working conditions. >> our hours are really grueling and we need not just rest between the workdays and over the weekend, but an actual meal break during the day. >> reporter: across the country, a record number of workers are quitting their jobs. 4.3 million americans or 2.9% of the workforce left their jobs in august.
7:05 am
many are looking for better work conditions and pay especially with inflation on the rise. several forces are driving all of this as the pandemic comes to an end, companies are seeing sky high demand and tight labor marketers. they're having trouble filling jobs. workers are noticing that top executive and bosses are getting paid so for the first time in a long, long time workers have the upper hand. robin? >> they've had enough. all right, terry, thank you. turning now to massive supply chain disruptions, empty shelves in stores all across the country and rising prices for what's in stock. president biden announcing a package of measures to hopefully break the logjam and get things moving again. kaylee hartung starts us off at los angeles at one of the nation's busiest ports. good morning, kaylee. >> reporter: hey, good morning, robin. the port of los angeles expanding its operations around the clock. this morning we have already seen ships moving in and out. this massive container ship behind me is in the process of unloading.
7:06 am
this is just one step in a bigger supply chain seeing disruptions all around the world. president biden is now saying the private sector needs to step it up. this morning, americans are paying more for everything from diapers to new cars and long waits are getting longer for online orders. toys, bikes, toasters, sneakers, they're getting harder to find. >> there are certain things that are not coming that will not be here. >> in order to keep your shelves full, we have to order eight weeks in advance. >> reporter: as a massive supply chain nightmare threatens the holiday shopping season, president biden laying out the strategy to solve the crisis. >> we're going to help speed up the delivery of goods all across america. >> reporter: calling on business, shipping and labor companies to work together to end the crippling bottleneck. >> fedex and u.p.s. are the shippers for some of our nation's largest stores. their commitment to go all in on 24/7 operations means that businesses of all sizes will get
7:07 am
their goods on shelves faster and more reliably. >> reporter: about 40% of all u.s. imports comes through southern california ports, but a fleet of ships is sitting idle there containers waiting to be unloaded. two of those ports are working around the clock. biden's goal to cure the shipping backlog and tame the high inflation it's caused. inflation up nearly 5.5%. in the meantime, experts say americans should expect to keep paying more even at the grocery store. eggs and meat both costing 12% more than a year ago. >> the chicken that's never been overpriced, we're paying 100 bucks a case where we used to pay 40, 50 bucks. >> reporter: it's not just groceries. this year has seen record breaking price jumps for children's shoes, furniture up more hathan 11% and even going t to dinner will cost you an unprecedented 5% more than last
7:08 am
year. the pandemic has pushed so much of our shopping online and ecommerce sales are soaring. amazon just announced they have already sold a million toys this holiday season. that's just in the last ten days. they say lol dolls and lego sets are among the items selling the fastest. it sounds like consumers are not taking any chances, george, and are shopping earlier than ever. >> it sure does, kaylee. we're going to the white house now and the latest in the investigation into the january 6th insurrection. more aides to president trump are facing subpoenas and contempt if they don't comply and cecilia vega has the details. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: hey, george. good morning to you. president biden has delivered another formal blow to former president trump's push to keep private these documents that could show exactly what he was doing behind closed doors there on january 6th and, trump, he's expected to sue over this to try to block the release of these documents. so we're likely looking at a legal fight coming up. this is being called a historic test of executive power that could carry significant consequences for future administrations. as for that investigation, let me tell you where things stand. the former acting attorney
7:09 am
general at the time of the january 6th attack, jeffrey rosen, he was the latest to testify behind closed doors. among those that the committee subpoenaed to testify today, steve bannon, he is not expected to show. but, george, this committee has issued at least 18 subpoenas so far. those who don't show likely facing criminal contempt. >> they are moving fast. cecelia, thanks very much. michael? now to more money for 70 million americans. the social security administration says seniors will get a 5.9% increase in their checks next year. economic correspondent deidre bolton has all the details. good morning, deidre. >> reporter: good morning, michael. that is right. social security beneficiaries will see checks increase by 5.9% starting in late december or early january. the biggest bump in almost four decades. one analyst told me this year is more about catching people up versus getting people ahead. prices have been rising for gas, groceries, insurance.
7:10 am
all of which crunch senior citizens on fixed incomes. this cost of living increase was calculated based on a formula of what we all pay for everyday items. just yesterday, bureau of labor statistics saying prices are up 5.4% over last year. so that's the highest increase since the 2008 financial crisis. but the welcome news with this, the benefit increase will put roughly $90 per month more into about 70 million american senior citizens' pockets. michael? >> definitely welcome news, thank you, deidre. robin? michael, now the latest on the fight against covid-19. the fda set to meet today and tomorrow on whether to authorize booster shots for some recipients of the moderna and johnson & johnson vaccines. steve osunsami has the latest for us. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. this morning the drugmakers are making their arguments for booster shots. johnson & johnson, for example,
7:11 am
says their single dose vaccine is about 70% effective in preventing moderate to severe disease but with a booster shot that effectiveness they say rises to about 94%. americans who got the single dose johnson & johnson vaccine could learn in the next few days if the fda thinks they should get another shot. and authorities are considering booster shots for americans who received two shots from moderna too. the fda going over data from the drug companies this morning, public hearings set for today and tomorrow. >> we have the vaccine supply and we will be ready to hit the ground running as soon as any additional boosters are authorized. >> reporter: moderna is suggesting a booster shot with half the dose delivered six months after the second dose of the moderna vaccine. johnson & johnson is suggesting a booster shot between two and six months after their single shot. once the fda authorizes the extra dose, the cdc needs to sign off with specific recommendations and that's expected to happen as soon as the end of next week. dr. fauci in a white house
7:12 am
briefing is underlining we may need the help of vaccines for a very long time. >> it's going to be very difficult at least in the foreseeable future and maybe ever to truly eliminate this highly transmissible virus. how can we get to that level of control? obviously it's vaccination. >> reporter: there's been a lot of discussion in public health about mixing vaccines, getting a booster from pfizer, for example, when your original doses came from moderna. new data from the national institutes of health shows that in early studies it appears to be safe and may be effective but more research is needed and overnight we're hearing from the face of vaccine hesitancy in the nba. star kyrie irving is breaking his silence on instagram live after the brooklyn nets told him he can't play unless he gets the vaccine. >> it's not about the money, baby. it's not always about the money. it's about choosing what's best for you. you think i really want to lose money? >> reporter: a new study out from the kaiser family foundation says that about
7:13 am
90,000 americans likely died this summer because they didn't get vaccinated. george? >> what a waste that is. okay, steve, thanks very much. let's bring in dr. ashish jha, dean of the brown university school of public health. dr. jha, thanks for joining us. let's talk about this fda meting on boosters, moderna and johnson & johnson. should we expect they'll be approved? >> yeah, good morning, george. thanks. i do. the data on johnson & johnson is overwhelmingly clear. little less clear on whether you need the moderna booster but i think overall it leans that way and i expect both of them to get authorized. >> what do you make of this idea of mixing of boosters? if you got the j&j first, you can get the moderna or pfizer booster? >> it makes a lot of sense. we have that new data out mentioned in the last report. i don't think it's a big deal if you got a moderna or pfizer to mix it. it's clearly safe and probably is not much more beneficial. where there appears benefit is adding a moderna or pfizer to a j&j vaccine.
7:14 am
preliminary data, but there is some evidence tat may be better off. >> should make it easier to distribute, right? >> yeah, i mean, we've got right now plenty of all of these vaccines and so really at this point, any booster is going to be really helpful for people. especially if you're in a high risk group. ?> what about kids between 5 and we've beaiting for approval for that age group as well. >> yeah, i think that's next week. the fda advisory committee will meet next week to go over that. i was hoping the cdc would sign off before halloween. probably will happen a few days after halloween. it's coming soon. >> are we getting to the point where we're getting beyond the pandemic yet? >> you know, we're certainly getting to a point where it is not going to necessarily dominate our lives the way it has for the last 18, 20 months. we've got boosters. we'll have them for everybody and therapies and going to enter a new phase of the pandemic. we still have work to do. a lot are still getting infected and dying but if we can drive
7:15 am
those vaccination numbers higher, we start putting this thing under control. >> dr. jha, thanks as always for your time and information. michael? we'll turn to a suspect armed with a bow and arrow accused of killing five people in norway. the suspect is under arrest and james longman has the latest this morning for us. good morning, james. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, michael. police in norway are now interrogating the man accused of launching that brutal bow and arrow attack last night. five people were killed and two injured when just after 6:00 in the evening a man started firing arrows inside a store in a town south of the capital, oslo. take a look at this. horrible haunting image and shows a bow still lodged in the wall of the crime scene. must have been really terrifying. officers moved in but the man managed to escape the store and a massive manhunt began. residents told to stay inside. he was eventually arrested 40 minutes later and understood to be a 37-year-old danish native known to authorities and the police chief said there was concern he had been radicalized.
7:16 am
four women and a man were killed. all aged between 50 and 70. the two wounded in intensive care. one was an off-duty police officer who happened to be in the store shopping at the time. george? >> what a horrific story. james, thanks very much. we turn now to four of the world's top gymnasts, simone biles and aly raisman, calling on congress to oust the u.s. olympic directors in the wake of the larry nassar scandal after their heartbreaking testimony on capitol hill and pierre thomas has the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: george, good morning. those renowned gymnasts that gave that riveting congressional testimony about their abuse at the hands of larry nassar are continuing to push for reform calling for the board of directors that oversees the u.s. olympic committee to be disbanded. simone biles, aly raisman, mckayla maroney and maggie nichols accusing the committee of fostering a culture of abuse that allowed nassar to continue his attacks against more than 100 female athletes. bottom line, they want any
7:17 am
officials in power during that period gone. john manly, the attorney for the women says they're asking congress to take this extraordinary step because the board has never accepted legal or moral responsibility for their failures in what he called a cover-up. george? >> pierre thomas, thanks. robin? george, we're going to turn to the wnba finals. the phoenix mercury tying up the series with the chicago sky after that overtime thriller last night. brittney griner, powering phoenix to the win in game two putting up 29 points. griner starting off the night hot scoring the team's first 10 and then diana taurasi finishing strong, scoring 8 of her 20 points in ot. >> and one right there. >> four points landed right there. the series moves to chicago where the sky will host game three on friday night. you can watch it on espn2. >> that is coming up. coming up here on "gma,"

7:43 am
>> right, good morning, robin. yeah, let me start by reading out my phone number to you and everybody watch it's 917-wait, i like never do that and putting your phone number on the internet is pretty much the same thing as sharing it on national answer your question is a way to keep your number private and still do business on the internet. google voice hides your number behind another ten-digit phone number and forwards calls to your actual phone, robin. >> how is that being used to scam people, becky? >> reporter: if someone ties a google account to your number and you don't know about it, they can impersonate you and do all sorts of stuff masquerading as you. so, if someone asks you for a code, that is a red flag because that code is a key to all your accounts. >> guys, i got scammed so please watch this. >> reporter: krista lewis with a warning to her tiktok followers. >> i never thought that i would

7:45 am
fact she was sending me a code like good for you, girlfriend. you're sending me a code to verify i'm a real person to protect you. >> reporter: why would someone do this? the speculation is that the scammers are creating these fake google voice accounts so that they can spoof the identity of the sellers. not only that, now with your number experts say they can scam others under your name. google tells "gma" it's aware of the issue, has counter measures in place and are taking action. as for krista, she was able to get back her google voice account and hopes her warning will spare others from potentially being scammed. when you receive these two factor authentication codes on your phone, they say don't share with anyone else. they mean it. don't share. but if this happens to you, you can go to google voice's help page and there are directions on how to reclaim your number, guys. whoo. complicated. >> thank you for shedding light

8:15 am
>> hard to come by, luxury fashion goods are something that consumers really want. might not be able to get it but they also want to know they're verified. these sites have started branching off into other items because they have infrastructure in place. >> reporter: sites like stadium goods, goat and stockx employ actual humans to verify items and now they've expanded to a wide range of items. stockx releasing a list of the most coveted items they expect to sell this fall and winter. a hot wheels tesla truck, this duffel bag, these diplo crocs -- psychedelic croc, really? the nintendo switch and the ps5, which dad greg was able to snag for this christmas. sh, don't tell. >> he will be super surprised we have it and i'm excited to see his face when he unwraps that. >> reporter: happy kids, but
