    The unions need to be reminded they only work for the company and do not make the decisions.
    The strikes will only lead to less investor confidence and more layoffs.
    Tell the unions Don't like your job? Go get another one.

    The unions in SA have the same attitude that the unions had in the UK before the advent of The Blessed Margaret as PM.

    There was a woman who out-manoeuvred all of them and castrated them into the bargain.

    I cannot see anyone in SA who can take on these arseholes because the electorate do not trust businessmen when they can work for a lazy, inefficient, monopoly.

    Uruguay is fucked because of the unions among other MAJOR problems such as The Broad Fraud.

    Hopefully it will take another generation before it crashes and burns. I will be dead before that!
