It’s funny that lockdowns and shutting down large parts of our society got us in the mess we are in and some people think that shutting down large sections of our society will somehow get us out.

It's Royal Mail workers who are striking. Not the Post Office. So the picture for this article is wrong.

The bosses have the upper hand most of the time. The one and only tool in the box for workers to level the playing field is industrial action. The Resolution Foundation makes a key observation: "With public sector real wages falling by 5.8 per cent this month – compared to a 2.0 per cent real-terms fall for private sector wages – strike action looks set to continue over the coming months, as high inflation cuts deep into workers’ pay packets." https://www.resolutionfoundation.org/press-releases/highest-number-of-days-lost-to-strikes-in-ten-years-but-set-to-continue-rising-as-public-sector-real-wages-fall/
