Let’s keep sensitive and debatable areas - Government, politics, brexit and Ukraine-Russia war out of scope.
All of our finances, especially the commoners are in shambles. Those who are striking have got their rights, are equally hurt as much as we all are and I sympathize with them as much I would with commoners and those who can’t take any action.
The bottom line is, I am not sure whether these actions actually pay off. The government may not set a precedent by giving in to the demands to avoid the strike.
These strikes not only hurt the businesses who have survived the lock downs, but equally hurt people who are all eagerly looking forward to seeing their families. A lot of us haven’t seen our families for a long time. Christmas and New Year are perfect opportunities to see them all in one place. That’s frustrating.
People have booked holidays on non-refundable and non-cancellable fares. They will all lose their hard earned money, unless travel cover is taken that facilitates a claim that reads between smaller font size.
The bottom line is no one is better off with these industrial actions. The commoners are always impacted.
