The Great Strike in Great Britain – behind it is “Burgerit” and high inflation

The biggest disruptions during Wednesday’s one-day strike will be at schools and commuters, as teachers and train drivers stop working in droves.

At the heart of the dispute is inflation, which recently peaked above 11 percent, the highest level in four decades. Employees are demanding compensation for this, while employers and authorities say it will be difficult.

– I would love, nothing will make me happier, to be able to wave a magic wand so that you all get better paid, says the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

He believes that everyone should help.

– An important part of fighting inflation, and halving it, is making sure that the government acts responsibly in borrowing. If you accelerate out of control, it gets worse.

Workers object that much of the crisis is being created by power, corporate greed, and greed. Many also suffer from the word “burgeret”, a slang term for regretting that Britain left the European Union to this day almost three years ago.

Almost half of the electorate never wanted to leave the European Union, and therefore see this decision as a major cause of many of the country’s current problems.

As it stands now, it looks like the strikes will continue. In the last six months for which statistics are available, from June to November last year, 1.6m individual working days were lost due to strikes in the UK, according to the Office for National Statistics – the highest number in more than 30 years.
