Break the Strike

The NYU Transit Strike is on.

I believe this strike should be broken. The strikers are public workers, forbidden by law to strike. Such strikes are inexcusable; public servants are just that. I speak as a former state employee.

The strikers have no right to endanger the lives of millions of New Yorkers who will be cut off from access to medical care, food, and employment. This is a situation that requires direct and vigorous action.

If they were not public employees, and then had a legal right to strike, would it be OK for them to cut millions of people off from transportation?

No, it wouldn't be OK. But it would be less bad.
