Mixed views on striking teachers

On Facebook, Jane Caithness Turner says:

"I agree with them. they should voice their anger, as we all should... If we all work until 68 there will not be any jobs for youth... Teachers work harder than MPs, time for fairness."

On Facebook, Antonio Barbaro says:

"A strike is always a last resort and for a profession as dedicated as teachers to come out on strike takes a lot. Backing them 100%. Good luck to them."
