It was like the opening scene in Leaving Las Vegas, multiplied by 70-80. I put down the single bottle of rum I had intended to buy and walked out. Seriously, how long do these people think the strike is going to last, if it even happens at all?

Our society as a whole benefits from a 5 day work week (some only working 37.5 hours a week), benefits for most full time employees, and their families as well as paid vacations.
If it weren't for unions we would still be working 6 day weeks - 12 hours a day for far less than minimum wage.

Are you kidding me?
Do you seriously believe that,
If it wasn't for unions most of us would be working 25 hours a week because goods and services would be cheaper and workers more efficient."
Have you studied 20th century History at all? How about the Industrial revolution in during the 19th century in Britain?
Sigh...I guess every forum needs a troll.
