Who do you think could inspire a General Strike? Maybe for the day/week the new tory bastard leader takes office :sm113:

Chuck in a few riots across England for good measure. I'm saying England because in the past they've been so much better at it than the Jocks. 😄
 
Amazon workers in Bristol are currently taking part in a sit in.If Hibs can't cheer you up maybe this will?
 
Hired: Six Months Undercover in Low-Wage Britain.

Journalist James Bloodworth’s story of being ‘embedded’ for six months as a zero-hours worker is vital reading for all.


Any yous read this? It was a good read to be honest.

Ah but will anyone notice?


Reach PLC hacks have voted to strike this month following a “meagre” 3% pay rise offer.

Express, Mirror and Star journalists, as well as those from countless local news outlets, will walk out on Friday 26 August, Wednesday 31 August, and 48 hours from September 14th to 15th.

They will also work only contracted hours from 1 to 13 September…

Reach offered staff a pay rise of either 3% or £750 minimum, which the National Union of Journalists said wasn’t enough, especially after last year’s 1% increase.

A total of 79% of members voted for the strike action on a 70% turnout.
 
Good luck to journalists,even if you work for rags I hate.

Reach are probably the worst rags out there for accuracy and I use that term loosely.
