About the strike by some 24,000 city workers, now in its second third stinky week...
Did you know that most city workers are women? Did you know that ar last half of those are part-timers, who get no sick leave? Did you know that, while the city was relatively generous with male-dominated unions (the police, firefighters etc.), it is demanding all sorts of concessions from those female inside workers now on the picket lines? Did you know that the screw up is by the city which, when it gave SOME workers those controversial sick leaves in exchange for salary concessions, neglected to set aside funding to pay those sick days out?
All this focus on garbage is garbage.
I'll say it again. Collective bargaining floats all our boats.
Which leads to this wonderful little video from the UK.
