REMARKABLE!!! British workers unite in largest strike in a generation

Up to half a million British teachers, civil servants, train drivers and university lecturers have walked off their jobs to demand better pay and working conditions in the largest coordinated strike action in a generation as wages fail to keep pace with soaring inflation.

About 300,000 people on strike on Wednesday are teachers, according to the Trades Union Congress.

Teachers at schools across England and Wales formed picket lines as they called for higher salaries in demonstrations that have divided public opinion.

Some locals in cars beeped their horns and raised a fist in solidarity as they drove past while others questioned teachers on their motives.

Learning and working from home reminiscent of COVID-19 lockdowns returned to many households as school gates were closed and most trains were halted.

According to a YouGov poll late last year, 59 percent of respondents were in favour of the education sector striking.

The National Education Union said about 23,000 schools will be affected on Wednesday with an estimated 85 percent fully or partially closed.

Former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who joined striking workers in London, called for a “fairer taxation system”.

“This country cannot afford the levels of inequality we have,” Corbyn said.

“There are more billionaires in Britain than ever before,” he said. “Many people, billionaires and millionaires, made a lot of money during COVID-19. They haven’t been taxed for it.”
