The Medicos went on strike for want of increase in their stipend. The demands were like increase the stipend from 4500 to 10 K, from 10 K to 25 K and so on .. The Anna Salai was blocked by a group of Aanganwadi (sorry abt spelling) workers demanding their job should be made permanent and pay hike is needed. Banks have already announced strike in August.
The government in all issues will start like there is no chance of meeting the demands. Then there will be talks going on for a month and at the end 90% of the demands would be met.
Can such a thing be imagined in IT industry? People get pink slip just like that. They are not even given time to react. Before they could digest what happened they are out there in the road. We have not heard of a single case of protest.
Why the fuck that government is the only body which can be threatened to get your problems solved. The Jayalalitha incident is the only thing I can remember where the government dealt this problem with an iron hand. But she got a bad name for doing the right thing.
