Public sector unions will be on strike on Wednesday. The cause of the dispute is pensions. The unions think that if they forego a day's pay, they will secure a post retirement income that will be multiples of what the rest of us will receive.
The strike reminds me of a latin proverb that would neatly resolve the matter:
"Caesar si viveret, ad remum dareris"
Roughly translated; "If Caesar were alive, you'd be chained to an oar."
