Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe the answer should be to fight for better conditions for nurses, then, rather than worse conditions for train drivers? Or do you accept the rights assertions that 'we must all work longer hours and more years' to 'save the system from bankrupcy'. Is the need for more, greater, better profits, in a more greater better liberalised reformed 'economy' to the liking of the financial 'services' 'industry' really inevitable and inarguable? Are you a supporter of the race to the bottom? Shall we go out to find the most disadvataged employment group and insist that everyone else accept those same conditions, because, after all, it's only fair that no one should benefit better than others. As long as those benefits can be seen as illegitimate workers privileges at the bottom of the pile, since under no circumstance should 'competitive' pay at the top be under similar public scrutiny?

(None of your biddniss what we pay 'em CEOs and traders and analysts and market players, or how they are taxed. After all, where would the money go to instead? Spoilt train drivers???)
