…to Kita (pre-school) on Tuesday, forget it.
First of all, you wouldn’t have got there, all major thoroughfares being blocked by striking workers (making such a din that even I could hear it….)
And if you DID finally make it, there would have been no-one there, the striking workers you’d been crawling behind being the pre-school teachers.
Have a certain amount of sympathy for them, though – in the 10 years to 2013, they had pay rises of 14% compared with 21% for the rest of the workforce.
Which doesn’t seem quite right, given their responsibility for the next generation…
And yet politicians get huge pensions and CEOs get paid obscene amounts of money for doing little.
