Trouble at HP. The Public and Commercial Services Union in the UK called for a one-day strike at HP’s Enterprise Service division. The union didn’t like that, despite record profits, the division has seen some pretty significant job cuts, as well as a pay freeze. So, strike. More than 1,000 people participated in the strike action, as strikes are commonly called in the UK. Knowledge!

HP had said that it offered the union a “reasonable offer,” vis-à-vis” contracts. Of course, the union didn’t like it, so it called for the strike.

And to be totally honest, the only thing I can add to this discussion is this here video from like a 20-year-old Simpsons episode.
