STRIKES: The decision for vital workers

This post was written by a student. It has not been fact checked or edited.


In our world today, We have different organisations, companies, and ministries that have been established for different purposes and reasons. This organisations consist of different set of people ranging from postal workers to police officers, to bankers and so many more of them found in our society today. This individuals have different duties and responsiblities in the society and if carried out accurately and properly it will aid in the development and growth of the society or even the country at large. It is also important to note that the services provided by some of this workers or organisations are essential and important in our daily lives because they serve as protection, health or even act as a means by which the lives and properties of citizens in the country are rescued.

Examples of very important and vital workers or organisations are the police officers, jail guards, emergency services, hospital workers etc. This are very important post and duties that are to be active and discharged effectively to ensure the comfort and safety of other people.

So therefore if this organisations and workers are not present and active in the society it can lead to different complications and drawbacks due to the fact that they this workers are going on strike. If they are not present in the society they will cause very complex situations for others and also endanger their lives. Take for instance, there is an arm robbery incident taking place in a bank, resident or in an organisation if the set police officers incharge of keeping the society safe go on strike what would be the next question, who would be blamed if someone is killed and the entire funding of that organisation is taken away, I think this question that would be asked if all this dreadful situation occurs can be avoided by bringing about a solution to solve this issues.

So Therefore, my point here is fair and clear, I support the fact that the federal government who are incharge of making sure that the working condition of this important workers in the society are properly managed, should be relieved of that job and it should be given to another organisation, this is because the government may not be able to take care of the working conditions of those important workers in the society due to the fact that they may have many issues and matters to solve on hand and they may not be able to look into that aspect. I believe that another organisation would be able to handle this issue without any problem or issue and therefore our society and nation at large would be great.

  • I understand your point of view. It seems like you are suggesting that another organization should take over the responsibility of managing the working conditions of important workers in society because the government may have too many issues to properly take care of them.

    While I can see why you might think this, it's important to remember that the government is responsible for protecting the well-being of all citizens, including these important workers. They have a duty to ensure that everyone is being treated fairly and with respect.

    It might be helpful to explore ways in which the government can improve their management of these workers' working conditions, rather than just passing the responsibility on to someone else. Maybe there are ways they can work with other organizations or experts in the field to come up with better solutions.

    In any case, it's important to consider all sides of the issue before making a decision. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    1. The government cannot completely prevent strikes, but it can improve the economic and social conditions of workers and citizens To reduce strikes, the economic and social conditions of workers and citizens can be improved by increasing salaries and improving working conditions If the government budget is weak, the government can improve the economic and social conditions of workers and citizens by attracting More foreign investment and improving the investment environment in the country.

    2. Hey mirthful mode,
      I understand that it's important to remember that the government is responsible for protecting the well-being of all citizens, including these important workers, But as I said in my standpoint, the government can just establish a
      daughter organization that is under them to be able to relief them and enable them to concentrate on other matters if not they might keep on failing to take proper care of vital individuals in the society. It is not that the government are not protecting the well-being of all citizens as their duty and responsibility requires, the daughter organization is still under the government and they are charge with the responsibility of making sure that the working conditions of this individuals are in proper shape and this does not mean that the government are not doing their job, so therefore I would see to this as an indirect service provided by the government to help ensure the happiness and safety of everyone in the society.

  • I agree with you as there should be no reason that workers should go on strike in the first place. The responsibility of pay should be in the hands of the owners of the business, but if that business can not adequately provide, then the responsibility can go in the hands of the government or another corporation.

  • Hi Reliable_Song - you provided good examples of professions which are important to the running of society in general. If a third party organisation is to be responsible for determining working conditions of these people, who should make up this group? Would it be workers, management, industry experts etc? How would this impact the salary decisions? Would they all give the same answer?

    1. I think the best category of people that should be given the duty to determine the organisation that will decide their working condition is someone elected by the workers. The workers of a particular industry can vote and pick a representative that will decide their working conditions and complain to the higher authorities if there is a problem. It is like practicing democracy in the workplace. The workers can pick someone that is competent and resonable enough to listen to their demands and decide what to do. The person will serve as a bridge, kind of like a local government as it is done in my country. It must not necessarily be an individual, it can be a board. This will help make everyone happy while following due process.

      1. I agree because if workers are given the choice to determine their working conditions most of them would be inconsiderate and only consider themselves and not what they government are capable of doing. The workers can have someone that would represent them to choose an agency that would represent them and these would influence the salary decisions because they agency would not be biased (at least should not be biased) The agency should be able to see things from the view of both of the parties and should be able to give a fair judgement on the price that they employers should pay their workers.

    2. Thanks.
      If a third party organization is to be responsible for determining working conditions of these people, I think the federal government should be able to provide the capital for the establishment of this third party organizations reasons because the federal government earn funds from different areas of the country and I believe they can invest a certain amount of money for the beginning or starting up of the organizations, so therefore I don't think the establishment of a third party organization should be a difficult problem to solve considering who should make up this group. For example we pay taxes and levies to the government, so therefore the government can take some money out of the tax fund and use it to startup the organization so that the working conditions of this vital individuals in the society would be taken care of. And coming to think of it through this taxes we pay to the government, if used for the establishment of this organization and the working conditions of this workers are in control, our protection, safety and other vital requirements is sure, because there would not be any problem of going on strike by the workers.

    3. In reply to your question, I would like to say that it should be the workers who should be responsible for determining working conditions because they are the ones in the putting in effort, that's why they should have the right to responsible for determining their working conditions. I believe that they could for a council and debate on their salaries then discuss it with the management.

      1. Hi Quirky_Hyena - we've got an English saying of letting the fox guard the hen house (apologies if this doesn't translate well). If the workers decide how much they get paid, what would stop them from choosing a high number? What if the company can't afford to pay this?

        1. I find your question quite interesting. I suggest that they get a reliable and trustworthy person from 'outside' (that is not from the organization or business) to help settle the matter if it occurs. The workers and the management can have a meeting with this individual to resolve the matter. I would also like to write that other trustworthy people can be invited to either share their opinions or to serve as witnesses.

        2. Worker strikes, including those in the field of education such as school strikes, can have a significant impact on various aspects of society. Here are some potential results of worker strikes in different fields:

          1. Education/schools: Strikes by teachers and other educational staff can disrupt normal school operations and cause students to miss out on valuable instruction time. This can lead to academic setbacks for students, especially if the strike extends for an extended period. Additionally, parents may need to find alternative childcare arrangements or even take time off work, which can be challenging for families.

          2. Healthcare: Worker strikes in healthcare can impact access to medical care and services, leading to delayed treatments, longer wait times, and increased stress on hospital staff. It can also exacerbate pre-existing issues like overcrowded hospitals or short-staffed departments.

          3. Transportation: Transport worker strikes, such as bus or train drivers, can halt public transportation entirely or force commuters to seek alternative means of travel, causing inconvenience and delays in reaching destinations.

          4. Manufacturing/production: Strikes in these sectors can cause production delays, shortage of goods, and unsatisfied customers, impacting the economy and individuals who rely on goods produced by manufacturers.

          5. Government/Public Administration: Strikes by government workers can result in delays in processing documentation, reducing efficiency in public services provided, and potentially resulting in the accumulation of backlogs.

          Worker strikes can have both short-term and long-term implications, depending on the duration and severity of the strike. While they serve as a tool for workers to demand better conditions or wages, they can also negatively affect the economy and society at large.

    4. I liked your question.. Well, in my opinion, I think that the best people are for the employees to determine the female employee who will determine the working conditions for each person, and it is the rights of the worker that all workers are the ones who supervise and are responsible for determining the working conditions for them, because in the first and in the last, of course, they are the ones who tire and expend all their efforts for this work.

    5. Determining the working conditions of essential professions requires a collaborative effort from various stakeholders. The third-party organization responsible for this would consist of representatives from different groups, including workers, management, industry experts, and policymakers.

      Having workers as part of this group is crucial since they are the ones most affected by the decisions made about their working conditions. They can provide insights into what it's like to work in their respective fields and what changes are necessary to improve their working conditions.

      Management representatives can offer a perspective on the feasibility and practicality of implementing proposed changes. Industry experts can provide technical knowledge and help ensure that any changes align with best practices and regulations.

      Policy makers can assess the broader implications of any decisions made, considering factors such as economic impact and social welfare.

      When it comes to salary decisions, having a diverse group of participants can help ensure that all perspectives are considered. Workers, for example, may prioritize fair wages and benefits, while management representatives may advocate for increased productivity and efficiency. Industry experts can provide insights into market rates and industry standards, while policymakers can consider broader social and economic impacts.

  • I really commend your standpoint because as you said, it is "Fair and Clear" Who would have taught that we can relieve the government from some of their duties in order to main stability in the country. Your angle and perspective of seeing things is really out of this world. I mean, the government do so much for us, the provide social amenities, they ensure our well being, they maintain our external relationships with other countries and many more, so therefore, in doing all this sometimes they may leave some other essential areas untouched, the thing is, we are all humans and as humans we make mistakes and so therefore some mistakes may be too costly and cannot be risked so, we should minimize those mistakes by formulating an agency that will "STRICTLY AND ONLY" handle the welfare of all government workers that way, they will have less to worry about, the issue of failure to keep to employers and employees agreement will be narrowed down to the organization and the problem of strikes will be delt with appropriately.

  • I think strikes are a bad thing for us as human beings. You can imagine if the emergency and ambulance services are absent from society for a short period of time, what will happen?..... Of course, we will lose very heavy losses. Humans and people are under the rubble, but by the grace of God, then the virtue of emergency and ambulance, they come out safely, and also when earthquakes occur in his country, many homes will not be destroyed, and there will be no helper for people other than God, then the ambulance men, so if they strike, it affects us a lot ..... Also, if the police strike, crimes and killings will spread, but I am not saying giving up rights by not going on strike. I am explaining the negative aspects of the strike on us as human beings, but there are solutions. Other than the strike, it includes the work of a ministerial council and talking to the president in order to meet the requirements, as well as....

  • Strikes in today's world are one of the main reasons that many people are not successful in something they are doing. People should not be able to go on strike if they don't have someone to take over for them.

  • You say that the strikes are the basic decision of the workers so that everything goes as required, but wouldn't that have a bad effect on the part of the students who want to learn or the economy in the country or the discovery stopped and the invention and discovery ended? Can you tell me what will happen and what are the negative effects of each subject from above? ??

  • This article can be criticized and improved in several ways. Here are some tips:

    Organization and structure: The article should be better organized to be more clear and readable. You can divide it into paragraphs that address specific points.

    Examples and support: Provide specific examples and supporting evidence for your claims. For instance, instead of saying "there are important workers and institutions in society," you can mention specific examples such as police officers, hospital workers, etc.

    Research and fact-checking: Before writing the article, it's important to fact-check the information provided. The information should be accurate and reliable.

    Accuracy and clarity: Use precise and clear language to express your ideas. Avoid long sentences and ambiguous expressions that can lead to confusion.

    Balanced discussion: Try to present multiple perspectives and not limit yourself to one viewpoint. Consider alternative possibilities and cite different opinions and research to strengthen your arguments.

    Balance between general and specific: The article should be based on a general reality that can be applied to multiple cases, rather than being based on personal experiences or individual circumstances.

    Logical reasoning: Use logical reasoning and evidence to support your ideas and positions. Present persuasive arguments that will enhance the overall credibility of your article.

  • I believe that every problem has a solution because nothing is impossible. I think we can solve the problem of strikes as they happen in my country. During this period, many strikes occur due to the bad economic and political situation, but the government succeeded in overcoming these problems and provided solutions to the employees. One of these solutions is to extend the rest period during work and increase salaries, so do not underestimate the issue of strikes ❤️

  • Hello.... 👋
    💥 The point of view is amazing, I salute you..😍
    💥 And as we know that a strike is a group of workers stopping work for a period of time...
    💥 If the period exceeds its limit, it leads to many problems in societies, specifically societies that are unable to control their affairs.... 🙃
    💥 For example, if the doctors and nurses are on strike and the patient is in a critical condition that cannot be waited is possible that he will die...
    💥I suggest that if managers want workers to work hard, they should improve salaries.....adjust working hours...
    💥 end thank you....
    And I bid you farewell❣

  • I liked your standpoint very much. Through it and through this festival and its topics that were discussed, I find that they are all related to each other. I have concluded that if change takes place and the principle of equality is actually achieved on the ground, whether in wages or working conditions, nepotism is eliminated, and everyone is dealt with on the basis of one law, then there will be no need for strikes. Strike is a legitimate right for every worker, but if we achieved equality in everything, and we were given safety in expressing our opinion and the participation of managers in our ideas, and their dialogue with us, here there is no need to strike. Rather, a sense of safety and security will be achieved, and here the individual will work for the benefit of all and everyone for the benefit of the individual.. I hope that this will be achieved.
