Philosophy Wire: 24h strike - The culmination of the “well-fed” hypocrisy



Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-11-05]: Many times we hear about 24-hour (or 48-hour)  strikes that working people do in retaliation for harsh measures taken from their governments or as a reaction for some “bad” changes in their work environment. But what is a 24h strike after all? For the employer, it is the BEST way to show he is free-minded. He just lets his employees not work for one day and after that they are all back and running as usual! For the employees it is a good chance to sit at home and get some rest. Essence = ZERO. In the old days, when people had REAL problems with their work they went on strike for months, actually RISKING their jobs and even their physical health (or even their lives)… Now we are all about pretending… And the only ones who actually go on strike are the "well-fed" who can afford to so. Too bad… Too sad…
