Losing a job is not a setback in life? Good grief...


It's also not an unexpected outcome for being a teacher, nurse, doctor, fire fighters, police officer, assembly worker, pilot, autoworker, professor - heck you can name pretty much any profession you want. These are all professions that are directly affected by unexpected or expected work stoppages. It doesn't mean you can't feel empathy for their situation. These people have no input to negotiations. They can't vote to get back to work and make sure hockey is played in October. They are held hostage in all of this you realize?

I sure hope you have a lot more "sympathy" in real life as you say than what you're exhibiting here on this forum.

What would you have done in the situation then?
