THE STRiKE IS ON.

















For weeks we have had a strike on, by people working at hotels and restaurants.
Saturday even more people went on strike.
It is the time of year, and I can not remember a year without a conflict / strike in May.
It involves most parts of the country.

But the union is strong, and they have a fortune, so it can last for a very long time.
This time as the sign says. They want a salary they can live on....

So as if you are planning on staying in a hotel,  you might struggle these days, or perhaps have to pay twice as much and stay where it is "business as usual".

When workers are paid fairly we all benefit from a more prosperous society!

It's interesting that strikes happen around the same time every year.

They happen with great regularity here as well.

They should be getting a living wage and having to strike every year seem really bad...

Yep, Verizon workers are on strike here in the U.S. I just past a few of the strikers this afternoon. Guess I should have taken a picture. :-)

Thank you for visiting me, I am now following you.
I am happy to see your photos of Stavanger, a lovely town that I have visited lots of times as my eldest son lived there for 5 years.
