Expect MASSIVE STRIKES in America......Just Like Greece?
ATHENS, Greece-- Greek workers held a general strike against the government's austerity measures Thursday, two weeks after the previous day of protests deteriorated into rioting in which three people died in a burning bank.
Ferries stayed tied up at port, buses, the Athens metro and trains suspended services, and many banks were closed. Schools shut down while public hospitals were working with emergency staffing levels.
Nurses voted overwhelm-ingly Wednesday against contracts offered by 14 Twin Cities hospitals, setting the stage for a historic strike unless last-chance negotiations produce a deal in the next 10 days.
Nurses rejected the contracts by a 9-to-1 ratio in a vote that was predictable given the Minnesota Nurses Association's stance that hospital executives weren't taking concerns about patient safety and under-staffing seriously enough.
Barring a last-minute agreement, the strike by about 12,000 registered nurses would be the largest in the profession's history in the U.S.
STILL WATCHING THE TICKER?
YOU SIMPLY CAN'T GIVE INSOLVENT BANKS' EMPLOYEES BILLIONS IN BONUSES WHILE FLEECING THE SHEEP AND NOT EXPECT THE SHEEP TO WAKE UP.........
WILL AMERICANS START EATING SHEEP JUST LIKE THE GREEKS?
