A strike is the stoppage of work temporarily done by workers to get the attention of their employers to meet their demands. Some reasons why people go on strike are:
1. Low salary.
2. Wrongful dismissal of workmen.
3. Dissatisfaction with the policies of the company.
4. Hours of work and interval timings.
5. Lack of motivation (incentives, allowances, bonuses, etc.)
Due to these reasons, millions of workers temporarily stop their jobs.
When it comes to strikes, I think that a whole country is affected. What I mean by this is that imagine if police officers went on strike. The country will be unsafe because there would be loads of crimes happening and nobody will be there to stop it. If a teacher goes on strike, who will be available to teach students? Therefore when strikes happen it affects a whole country.
In Ghana, the judicial service association of Ghana (JUSAG) says it will embark on an indefinite strike if the president of Ghana doesn’t approve and implement their salaries and arrears from January 2023. The judicial services in Ghana are complaining about low salaries, therefore they’re thinking of embarking on a strike. This shows that when you have tried everything possible and the government is not taking heed to you, the strike will be the last possible way to get the attention of the government. I think one way to reduce strikes is that, since things in the country have become expensive, the government should also increase the salaries of workers to prevent strikes.
