I bet they won't be the only ones profiteering during the Olympics. I can imagine the prices of all sorts of things will rocket during this time but won't get all the headlines from the papers etc. I don't agree with what the drivers are doing I think it is wrong but they should not be the only ones getting criticized.

Strikes are about individuals giving up money in the hope that they will get more as a result.

Strikes are about a workforce fighting for their rights...individualism is not an issue.

fourm member - strikes are about a group of people (ie more than one, the mathematical symbols > 1 ) withdrawing their labour for a grievance against their employer.

One person (an individual) cannot be on strike alone.

Do not mislead people otherwise.

Your fantasy world is more fantastic than mine (Take that as a compliment)

HB said "would you expect people to walk 10 miles to work"

In a recent case of diabolical weather where the roads were impassable due to snow,a lass from the NE did exactly that as she didn't want to inconvienience her boss at a restuarant where she was a waitress.

It seems to me rhar the folk who are winging over pension prospects are over looking the fact that this money when they get it will be in additipn to the srate pension which the rest of us haveto get by on

Nothing is static in world it is up to the individuals to decide--live now or live later longer with less-- their choice do not expect other-through their taxes to keep them in clover
