Today I’ve got this Issue on my Nationstates (nationstates.net)
Essentially on Strike
Disappointed with their current wages and working conditions, disgruntled law enforcement officers have voted for strike action, leaving no one to maintain order. A majority of police officers are now refusing to work until their demands are met, in turn stirring public debate over the ethics of striking by so-called essential workers.
I’ve encountered with 3 choices
1. “My daily commute is being blocked by the same people who are supposed to be protecting us,” complains Commodities Analyst Xanatos Carey. “Criminals are running wild! These officers are guilty of gross dereliction of duty, and should be ashamed of themselves. In fact, they should either get back to work, or be fired immediately. Essential workers have no business risking our lives for their own petty financial gain.”
2. “You’d better believe we’re upset,” snaps Officer Chris Hopkins, making no effort to pursue as a pickpocket runs off with your wallet. “We dedicate our lives to keeping the public safe, and must always be vigilant, yet we’re paid ridiculously low wages and get about as much respect as the criminals we bring to justice. We have every right to be striking, just like workers in every other industry. Yes, of course, the country is suffering without our services. That’s the point. That’s why you should grant our requests.”
3. “Everyone has a right to strike, but everyone also has a right to essential services,” asserts idealistic student and socialist Isabelle Peña. “You just have to make sure that there’s sufficient funding and training for redundancy to exist within the system, so that essential services can cover for each other at times of industrial action. If ambulance crews are on strike, use fire patrol vehicles and police convoys. If the firefighters are on strike, then deploy the army. If the army goes on strike… well, yeah, that’s a toughie. But you get the idea.”
4. Dismiss the issue
Option 2. sounds nice so I choose it.
The result saids ‘The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions.’
