Reply To: Bring Back Maggie! Outbreaks of 1970s-Style Strikes Widespread

I am afraid all unionised industries are in for a period of dreadful industrial relations.

We have had a booming economy for 15 years and naturally when the cake is getting bigger it is easy enough to share it round. Now much of the developed world is in for slow growth if any at all, the cake will not be growing, and those with industrial muscle will think they have a right to use it. If you think current strikes are bad wait until a government tries to take on the public sector workers and reduce their terms of employment.
