I work in an industrial area. The countrywide strike by NUMSA members who do not care that you have no choice but to be at work to pay your bills, is upsetting me.

The Demands:

While companies had offered up to eight percent increase for skilled workers, and seven percent for unskilled workers – with CPI-linked increases set for next year and 2016 – the union is sticking to its demand of 12 percent.This was after initially asking for 15 percent. http://www.iol.co.za/business/companies/numsa-marches-in-cape-town-1.1712593
