Great, more strikes. First Greece, then here, then the UK.

I was on strike last year over pensions. We lost the fight a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Looks like this UK one might do better, though, as it involves more people and more unions. Ours was just within the company I work for.

Canada. Our postal workers striked for a week. Pain in the Ass. Although the Greece strikes irritate me more.

I guess that's the point of a strike. As long as it's a one day thing I don't mind.

Power To The People right on!
