It is that time of the year were industrial action is the order of the day. In fact It seems like it not only happens during this time but every other time in the year. What are our employers doing or really not doing that gets thousands of the work-force every year to take to the streets? The world Icon, Doctor Nelson Mandela once said; "When a man is denied the right to live the life he believes in, he has no choice but to become an outlaw.”
With this in mind I find it justifiable, even though painful that the 'Joburg City Power workers decided to down the tools, I mean everyone has a right to a living wage that is respectable as far as the constitutions is somewhat concerned. Now as I am writing this, the petrol attendants are fighting for their rights of-which I find it justifiable but funny at the same time, I mean if it gets really tough out there on the part of petrol attendants, how will those bosses get to their offices without the fuel? Does not make sense at all.
Not so long ago the "essential public servants" were threatening to take to the streets. Am talking here about the cops and the nurses. My question; isn't there any form of solution that our beloved government can do on this part? I mean the honorable politicians wouldn't want us to boy-cot their most prized possession in the elections, would they?
