Strike!

“The council says we have to take a pay cut so lower paid workers, especially women workers, can get an increase. Women workers have been underpaid for years, and they should have their pay increased, but not at the expense of their fellow workers.”

So Leeds City Council decided that everyone should have equal pay and started the equal pay legislation.
So now all workers doing equivalent jobs should have equal pay?? But how can an office clerk and a bin man have equal pay?

I don't think it is right to cut bin men's salaries by as much as £6,000 a year!
No wonder they go on strike lah!

It's almost 3 weeks already and now we have 5 bin bags sitting at the back yard waiting for the bin men... I hope there will be no rats...
