The continued public sector strike justified

The government should stop dismissing workers who are on strike.

The government should stop dismissing workers who are on strike.

The public sector unions are correct to engage in the strike, because their members are paid peanuts.

Salaries of public sector employees are not enough to pay for the ever-increasing prices of public transport, food, clothes and education.

It is worse for those who are highly qualified, but still earn peanuts. People should understand that government employees are on strike because they do not earn enough.

It is nonsense for government to suggest that many are not supporting the strike, but are afraid to go to work because of intimidation. The fact is that conditions in our country, are getting worse. I suggest the government and unions find a solution to the continued impasse.
