Looking for experiences others may have had in this regard: A strike is going on, and it gets covered on TV, newspaper/web, and the radio... and I hear all about the inconveniences the strike causes to regular people, and the amount of money that the city/company/etc. is losing, and that the union is being rigid, inflexible, etc. and/or the two sides are miles apart. Sound familiar? I also rarely hear the exact reasons/facts/issues of why the strike is taking place, what each side is 'demanding' and the context of this job action. Not that the media is somehow anti-labor, but it seems constant and I wondered if anyone else noticed this happen in their neck o fthe woods? My most recent experience is in the greater Toronto area, with a strike by garbage workers and others. I guess I assume if the facts are on your side in an argument, you do everything you can to ram them down your opponent's throat, not appeal to the emotions of the audience and avoid direct, clear reasoning.
