Mind. Blown.
Thread was worthwhile just for this.

And I agree with them both. Virtually everyone should be allowed to strike. The only exceptions, imo, are are those on whom lives and safety depend -- doctors, fire fighters, and so on.
So getting to work to make a living in a region with already a high cost of living is not an exception to the rule? I see Public Transportation as a public service, even though I do think the longer this strike goes on, the more people will get used to getting around without it. That should be a negotiating tactic.
