I’ve just read the post about strikes for food etc. In Germany we have a lot of people who really like to go on demonstrations – people of the labour union. For example, in the last year, I guess you all remember, there were nearly no trains running anymore in Germany because the train drivers strike to get more money. Over half a year nobody would know exactly if your train came or not. This was really hard for those employees who shuttle everyday. Moreover, the companies had some problems because if there was no train the employee was too late at work. Finally, in January both agreed on a consens (see here).
Just two weeks ago the post start to strike for more money as well. The consequence of that was that in my cities people didn’t get their mails for about one week (see here). This is not as bad as for a usual people but the problem can arise for example if a company sents our an invoice and needs the money as soon as possible but the debitor doesn’t received the invoice then the company can get in trouble. The other way around it’s also possible that the debtor gets in trouble because the paying back period is over and thus the debtor cannot order new products.
What do you think is this the right way to get more money if other people suffer from this as well?
