The whole of the U.K. will soon be on strike - it could be a summer of discontent. Nurses want a 15% pay rise, BA want their 10% Covid pay cut reinstated, train drivers, teachers, doctors, barristers etc are all demanding significant pay rises as inflation is so high.

I haven't seen raise requests like that since the late 70's, early 80's.
I understand why they are making these requests. I just wish there was a way to solve this short of strikes.

Hmmm, maybe we could start by having those who are hiding their money in Panama, the Caymans, South Dakota etc pay their fair share.

How bout the CEOs take a pay cut? Many are making 10x what an average worker makes.

Add to say I think it's only the check in people and not the actual gate or airplane staff. I read 30% of staff would be affected.
