Spain On Strike. 29M


Yesterday was a day of nationwide strike. This was the sixth general strike that is done in our democracy (since 1978), and the first that makes to the current government of Spain, which takes 100 days to rule. The strike is from the new labor reform, which among other things, lowers the dismissal, or encourages companies to hire under 30 years old or over 45 (which happens between 30 and 40 .) I will not assess whether the reform is good or bad, because I do not think I position myself in this blog.
According to the unions, the strike has been a success. According to the employers and the government, no.
