I believe in unions. I believe that without unions, the workers in this country would lack proper wages and benefits.

I believe they should strike when they denied this.

TWU was not denied this, and most of them did not want to strike.

Right now - businesses are closing because either their employees or their customers can't get to them. A lovely, brand-new restaurant a block from me opened on Friday and is dark now because they can't get their staff in. Will they close? I don't know. They were building for most of of a year.

As for me - it cost me $40 to get to and from work yesterday.

My earnings for the day then? $10, if you take out taxes and such. There's no point in me going in. I don't work on Thursday anyway, or Friday, but Monday is something else.
