Apparently 2 000 000 "workers" are due to strike today over pension reforms. I don't like unions and have always felt if you don't like your job, leave and go elsewhere. Either way, it's going to cause misery for the (wo)man in the street and another reason why I prefer to live elsewhere. Luckily the post office is not involved. As the lady told us when we asked, "we're not civil servants".
Quite right, post office staff are neither civil and rarely serve... ;-)
