Speak for yourself! I'm in trouble if this strike lasts too long. I need to make money like anybody else and for that I need to go to work!

I'd like to see the union try and convince the majority of people they are inconveniencing with this that they deserve more. You know, low income seniors, students, and people who work jobs with longer hours and no benefits for half the wage (if they're lucky). See if they can say "we deserve more" to these people and keep a straight face.

Oops! Sorry if I sounded pissed off...

Fortunately, the government has given an ultimatum of 48 hours for them to settle their issues... After that, I guess they'll pass a special law...
