Public sector workers were striking today in Ireland. Sorry, but striking due to the possibility of loss of a pay raise...during a recession...when the population is emigrating just to find employment...is really stupid. No one is getting any support from this unemployed person!

Oh, and apparently being on strike means you just stand around, holding a sign and talking to friends or texting on your phone. Some of the strikers did actually walk in a circle, but there is no chanting. Boo!


  1. If I was ever on strike, I would chant the following:
    "We want a pitcher, not a belly itcher."
    "We want a batter, not a broken ladder."

    That's how you get what you want. Confuse them.

  2. It would certainly be more effective than just standing around and having a chat.
